The annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs competition will be held May 15-17 at the zMax Dragway adjacent to the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. 

Owner-operators with actively working trucks from across the United States and Canada will compete for cash and prizes in excess of $25,000 during the Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck beauty competition. Twelve drivers’ trucks will be featured in the 2015 Rotella SuperRigs calendar. SuperRigs entrants will be awarded with a gift package valued at more than $50 while supplies last, as well as MyMilesMatter bonus reward miles.

Judging will be 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, May 15 and 16, and between 8 a.m. and noon on Saturday, May 17. Judging takes about 20 minutes, and contestants do not need to be present to win. The presentation ceremony for the awards will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Industry professionals who work for major trucking publications and broadcast companies will judge and score the rigs on exterior appearance, design, detail/finish, originality and workmanship. In total, 28 working trucks receive awards for categories such as Best of Show, Tractor, Tractor/Trailer Combination and Classic. The hardest working trucker will be selected based on how hard he/she works in keeping the economy moving.
