Shell Rotella SuperRigs show picks calendar trucks, hosts parade this week

2012 SuperRigs Best in Show
John O’Keefe’s 2007 Peterbilt 379 won Best of Show in last year’s SuperRigs competition. The truck also won the Overdrive’s Pride & Polish National Championship in Dallas at The Great American Trucking Show.

The Shell Rotella SuperRigs show will take place this week — June 20-22 — in Tomah, Wis., alongside the Budweiser Dairyland Super National Truck & Tractor Pull. The annual event is held as a competition for owner-operators and to decide the 12 trucks that will be featured in the next year’s SuperRigs calendar.

Shell says about $25,000 in cash and prizes will be available to competitors, and any owner-operator can show his or her truck. Each entrant will get a gift package that includes a gallon of Shell Rotella T Triple Protection engine oil, a gallon of Rotella Extended Life Coolant, a My MilesMatter Rewards card and a SuperRigs t-shit and hat.

The show will take place at the Monroe County Fairgrounds off of I-90. Drivers can register on site. Judging will take place between 7:3- a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday and between 7:30 and 12 p.m. Saturday. Contestants do not have to be present to win. The awards ceremony will take place Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

The lights contest will be held Friday night at 9 p.m., with the annual trucker’s parade — which features the SuperRigs contestants — immediately after. Fireworks will be held Friday night at Recreation Park.

Drivers who can’t make the show can upload a photo of their truck to the Rotella Virtual SuperRigs website through July 10, and online voters will select a winner, who will receive $500.
