Lee Ermey, will appear again as a celebrity guest at the company’s Off Road Success Center in the Upper South Hall Lobby (booth #34000) during the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas on November 1-4.

Ermey, best known for his landmark role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in the 1987 Stanley Kubrick film “Full Metal Jacket”, has become synonymous with the public’s image of a boisterous military drill instructor.
