Ohio owner-operator drives away with sweepstakes rig

| September 28, 2009

It was quite the scene at Randally-Reilly Publishing headquarters in Tuscaloosa, Ala., Friday. The publishers of Custom Rigs magazine — whose parent mag is Overdrive — flew in the winner of its first-ever sweepstakes, John Lacusky of Ohio, to pick up the Chrome Shop Mafia-detailed Sequel, a 1998-model International 9400 he won when his name was drawn from thousands who put in in advance of the Great American Trucking Show last month in Dallas.

Lacusky (pictured, with Overdrive and Custom Rigs publisher Brad Holthaus), in turn, drove away feeling more lucky than I imagine he’d felt in quite a long time, if not ever. Click here for R editor Bruce W. Smith’s story about the day, and for more pictures of the beautiful rig.
