James A. "Jim" Haslam II, founder of Pilot Corporation and chairman emeritus of Pilot Flying J, will receive the association’s Hall of Fame award at The NATSO Show in Savannah, Ga., Feb. 2-6. The Hall of Fame Award recognizes individuals for notable participation in their communities, the truckstop and travel plaza industry and in NATSO. Haslam first entered the fueling industry in 1958 with one gas station. Today Pilot Flying J is one of the largest travel center chains in the country with more than 650 locations and about $30 billion in sales in 2011. NATSO members nominate candidates for the award, and NATSO’s executive committee and past Hall of Fame recipients select the winner. Haslam's son, James A. "Jimmy" Haslam III, will present the award during the show.
