The hit song by country music artist Terri Clark inspired the name of Tommy Roach’s 1999 Peterbilt 379. The truck is powered by a C12 Caterpillar and 13-speed transmission. The pop song “fit my lifestyle,” says the past Overdrive Pride & Polish contestant (in 2009, his combo unit bagged Third in its class). He’s added a custom enclosed headache rack, stainless steel fenders and doors and panel light bars. “Even the trailer is custom,” he says, which he uses to haul jet engines and chemicals.
