Overdrive October cover

It’s been quite a while since we’ve gotten as many kudos as we have for this month’s cover, featuring small fleet owner-operator Bill Rethwisch’s Dreamsicle 2012 389, national champion in Overdrive‘s Pride & Polish series in the Working Combo class. Following find just a few of the accolades centered around the rig itself:
