Dallas duo: Finalist Libby Clayton poses with Pride & Polish champ
Austin Ashley’s 2007 Peterbilt 379 serves as the backdrop here for Overdrive’s Most Beautiful finalist Libby Clayton, who drives doubles across the country for Dillard’s department stores.
Ashley’s truck, Double Take, left The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas in August as the first Truckers’ Choice winner of the Overdrive’s Pride & Polish National Championship.Ashley’s truck was selected by Overdrive readers who voted online for their favorite truck in the National Championship series, which culminated at GATS. Clayton – who as an Overdrive’s Most Beautiful finalist won an all-expenses-paid trip to GATS – says she entered because “show trucks have always caught my eye, and I’ve always wanted to be photographed with one. I think it’d be a neat thing to pull out years down the road and show my grandkids and tell them, ‘Hey, this is what your grandma looked like in her trucking days.’”
