Small fleet owners Ray Rodriguez and Travis Poulsen each scored their second Overdrive’s Pride & Polish Best of Show awards of the 2015 National Championship season this weekend in Willows, Calif., at the Dynalfex-sponsored Monster Stack Shootout show.

Rodriguez’ 2015 Peterbilt 389 and 2015 Western Stepdeck, which he’s named “Wicked,” won Best of show in the Limited Mileage Combo category. The Salinas,Calif.-based flatbedder also won Best of Show in the same category at last year’s Great American Trucking Show.

Poulsen and his 1998 Peterbilt 379 won Best of Show in the Limited Mileage Bobtail category, the same category the two won at 2014’s PDI Pride & Polish show.
