Scenes from the 2010 Rush Tech Skills Rodeo

I'm in San Antonio, Texas, this morning at the site of Rush Truck Centers' fifth annual Tech Skills Rodeo, which pits 65 (out of more than 700 entering) of the truck dealer/service center network's best diesel technicians against each other and a set of bugged vehicles.

Since I blogged about Delvac's involvement as sponsor of the big Tomah, Wis., tractor pull in June, I've taken note of another on-highway oil mainstay's sponsorship of the high-profile Koester Racing team. Pictured are the Shell Rotella-sponsored pullers of father-son team Larry (black) and Adam (white/black) Koester. The Koesters came away from Tomah with four top-ten finishes.   They're pullers with championship histories in the mini-modified ...
