Suggestion: The one movie that comes to my mind when I hear 'Trucking'; the film that taught us that if you wanna feel like a truck, turn your hat around: Over the Top.  :)

Oh, and it has a lot of sweat.  A lot.  And now I feel like I need a KARR hat, for some reason.

15yearsIMDber, as far as I remember it made such a buzz, it actually was released theatrically post factum.

Well, I think it pretty much serves my point that it's not totally arbitrary to have included that classic, although its initial format was TV. Thanks for bringing up these interesting facts.

"Duel" is probably too "basic" for today's audiences... no shooting, no sex, very little dialogue... just suspense and good acting.  

I am surprised there are no comments about "Hell Drivers", which I watched recently after re-discovering Patrick McGoohan.  LOTS of trucks in that one  ;-)
