Though the total number of rigs entered was down about from previous years, the turnout overall was still impressive.

“We had nearly 50 custom rigs here,” Neal Holsomback said.

The long list of other winners included working-class combos owned by Farmers Oil, Hall’s Trucking, Z-Bar Transportation, Bill Hall Jr. Trucking and Jade Transport, to name a few.

Bobtails were also well represented. Larry Swingle of Kenny Yeary Trucking was honored with the Roadworks Best Use of Chrome award for his 1978 Kenworth W900.

Elvis Williamson of Southern Miss Trucking won the Rising Star Award (first time showing) with his 1995 Peterbilt 379, and Kelly Ast’s grain trailer-pulling ‘87 Peterbilt 359 won first in the Working Combo 2002 & Older class.

Up and coming

Teenager Cody Lindamood is all smiles and full of the enthusiasm shown by a lot of first-time Pride & Polish entrants. Having a Third Place Rising Star trophy sitting on the passenger seat of a 2000 Peterbilt 379 as a result of his effort adds to the excitement.

“I started driving a truck when I was 10,” says the 15-year-old cousin of Irving, Texas-based Lindamood Demolition’s Jake Lindamood. “That was the age when I could push the clutch pedal down. My dad [Elmer Lindamood] gives me a lot of support and I learn a lot about driving from him and the rest of the guys at the shop. I can’t wait to get my CDL and start driving trucks for my dad.”

It was Jake who offered Cody, at the last minute, the opportunity to show the Lindamood Demolition dump combo at the Great American Trucking Show.

The young Lindamood takes great pride in the trucks he and the rest of the Lindamood Demolition crew bring to shows. “When I get to show a truck, I make sure it’s clean,” he says. “The next time I show this truck, it’ll be spotless under the hood and the undercarriage will be detailed. That’ll get me up there from Third, where I placed this time.”
