This profile is part of a two-week series in which Overdrive will be publishing stories about the four Pride & Polish National Championship winners — crowned in August at The Great American Trucking Show — and the four best of show winners from the event. 

Ashley -- truckers choice

New to this year’s Overdrive‘s Pride & Polish National Championship competition was the Trucker’s Choice award. 

Prior to The Great American Trucking Show — where the series culminated — Overdrive readers voted online for their favorite truck in the National Championship series. That Truckers’ Choice winner was Austin Ashley’s 2007 Peterbilt 379, Double Take, which is pictured above.

Ashley, of Raleigh, Miss., also won Second in the championship’s Overall Working Bobtail.
