Last call: Vote now for year’s top show truck in Truckers’ Choice contest

| August 18, 2016

There’s just over 24 hours left to vote in this year’s Truckers’ Choice Pride & Polish contest, in which Overdrive readers select one of the Pride & Polish National Championships crowned at the Great American Trucking Show next week.

The Truckers’ Choice National Champion will be chosen by Overdrive readers in an online voting contest that ends Aug. 19 — just a few days before the Aug. 25-27 GATS begins. Six national champions will be named in a special round of judging at GATS, acting as the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season. Pride & Polish shows around the country since last August have determined the field of finalists.

The Truckers’ Choice contest pits the roughly 20 championship finalists against one another to determine a winner, who’ll be named and given a trophy at the Pride & Polish awards ceremony Saturday, Aug. 27, in the Truckstop.com Theater at GATS.

GATS also will host 80 other custom working and show trucks to kick off the 2016-2017 season.
