You’ve seen it before, no doubt. The Raleigh, Mississippi-based Ashley Transport short-hauler of owner-operator Austin Ashley — “Double Take,” with a design that includes “two of everything,” says the owner-operator, won the Trucker’s Choice award in our Pride & Polish National Championship online vote. Thanks to a Best of Show in the Limited Mileage category this year at the Tennessee edition of the Pride & Polish series, the Caterpillar-powered 2007 Peterbilt 379 is competing again this year. Those of you attending the Great American Trucking Show in August can expect to see the rig in action there.

Take a closer look at the truck in the video interview with Ashley shot in Tennessee last month.

UPDATE 11/9/2015: Ashley’s rig, with four others, is currently in the running for the Truckers’ Choice title among five years’ worth of Pride & Polish National Championship winners — follow this link to vote once every day through November 20, 2015, for your favorite.
