Brian Dreher and his 2016 Peterbilt 389 earned top honors in the 38th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck show, winning Best of Show in the event. SuperRigs, like most other industry events this year, was held virtually.
Dreher will appear in the 2022 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar, as the 2021 version of the calendar will be a special edition celebrating the past 37 years of the event and feature “Legends of the Road” from previous SuperRigs calendars.
“Congratulations to Brian Dreher for winning Best of Show at Shell Rotella SuperRigs and to all of the award winners,” said Annie Peter, North American marketing manager, Shell Rotella. “Our 38th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs looked a little different this year, but the same spirit of community rose to the top. It was important to Shell Rotella to continue the great tradition of honoring hardworking truckers through SuperRigs as our community continues to help North America persevere during a challenging year.”
In addition to Best of Show, winners were named in other categories – Tractor, Tractor-Trailer, Classic and People’s Choice. Truck driver Jeron Whittmore was also named by the judges as the Hardest Working Trucker, which was determined by judges based on stories of hard work over the past year submitted by drivers. Each award winner received MyMilesMatter reward points and a limited-edition Shell Rotella jacket.
