From free concerts to highly educational sessions, GATS is where trucking gathers. August 23-25, in Dallas, Texas. Register today.
And — in addition to the show’s role of choosing the weekend’s winners and the 12 trucks that will appear in next year’s SuperRigs calendar — it also, in small part, offered a sneak peak at the upcoming Overdrive’s Pride & Polish National Championship, the finale for which will be held at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas in August.
Below are the five Pride & Polish championship competitors I saw in the two days I roamed the lot at SuperRigs. More could have showed up Saturday, after I’d left the event, but the five that were there make up at least a quarter of the trucks that will square off in August for the 2015 Pride & Polish championship.

Phil Miller’s 2010 Peterbilt 389 and livestock hauler:
Dustin Pope’s 2003 Kenworth W900L and 2010 Utility reefer:
