KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - September 10, 2015) - While the rest of the country celebrates Driver Appreciation Week from September 13-19, Pilot Flying J will honor professional drivers throughout the entire month of September with special experiences and prizes, as well as free daily deals.

"At Pilot Flying J, we find it imperative to recognize and appreciate the work of professional drivers this month and every month."

Throughout September, Pilot Flying J will celebrate drivers by offering weekly and daily deals on customer favorites, such as coffee, grill items, energy drinks and more.
