The 39th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck show will be held at the end of July in the outskirts of Chicago.

Show organizers announced Thursday the show will be held July 29-31 at the Love's Travel Stops location in Hampshire, Illinois, located off I-90 west of Chicago. 

This year's theme is "A Time to Shine," as truck drivers come together to enjoy the competition and community. There will be no fee to enter SuperRigs, and each entrant will be judged by a team of experienced judges from trucking media outlets.

The three-day event will continue the tradition of honoring truck drivers for their hard work. The competition is intended for actively working trucks. Hardworking owner-operators from across the United States and Canada will compete for more than $25,000 in cash and prizes.

Eleven drivers will be selected to have their trucks featured in the 2022 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar. The 12th truck will be the 2016 Peterbilt 389 of Brian Dreher, who won Best of Show at the virtual contest held in 2020. (Dreher's rig is pictured at the top of this story.)

Details for Shell Rotella SuperRigs are subject to change as they are finalized. More information about Shell Rotella SuperRigs and advance registration will be available soon. Event registration is recommended but not required.
