The annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar, featuring the finest trucks from one of the premier truck shows each year, is now available to order.
The 41st Shell Rotella SuperRigs was held in Gillette, Wyoming, this year, carrying with it a theme of “Big Rigs, Big Competition, Big Country.”
Each year, Shell Rotella honors and recognizes truck operators throughout North America in the truck beauty contest. Owners and operators competed for numerous awards and sought a spot in the 2024 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.
Twelve were selected to have their trucks featured, with photos for the annual calendar shot in the Gillette area.
The 2024 calendar can now be ordered online here and is available for $7 plus shipping. The calendar tells the stories of hardworking drivers who traveled to Gillette to participate in the contest. A few highlights:
April: Cody Davis from Cokeville, Wyoming, remembers always wanting to have a truck in the SuperRigs calendar as a kid. This past year was his first time at the competition, where he showed off his hardworking 2022 Kenworth W900, also a dual-category winner in Overdrive's 2023 Pride & Polish competition.
June: Truett and Crystal Novosad from Caldwell, Texas, have been coming to SuperRigs for more than 20 years and won their first Best of Show this past year with their 2007 Peterbilt 379 named “Doc Holliday.” Throughout Doc Holliday is a theme from the movie Tombstone, including Doc sayings, an airbrushed silhouette on the firewall, pistols at the ends of the pinstripes, and top hats.
July: J.R. Schleuger from Britt, Iowa, likes old trucks just like some people like old classic cars. When entering his 1984 Kenworth W900B, he noted, “Anybody can go out and buy a brand-new truck, and they just have a brand-new truck. When you buy an old truck and turn it into a new truck, I feel like you really have something.”
December: Mark and Payton Aragon from LaSalle, Colorado, took three years to build their custom 2003 Peterbilt 379, which they entered at their first SuperRigs this year. When they were invited to be in this year’s calendar, Mark noted it was all the great ideas his son put together that got them a spot.
