Small fleet owner Josh Skidmore says his signature yellow and white paint scheme is like a personal calling card, and it’s a scheme that’s done him well, having scored the Utah-based operator two Pride & Polish National Championship trophies with two separate trucks.
The most recent, his 2016 Peterbilt 389, follows two Best of Show victories from the 2015-2016 season. “Out west when people see a white truck with yellow fenders going down the road they know it’s us,” Skidmore said last year of his truck’s paint scheme.
Skidmore stated his Skidmore Transportation Services in March 2004. Skidmore does all of the custom work on his custom rigs at his 27-truck fleet’s shop. He most recently won a Pride & Polish National Championship in the 2014 contest with his 2007 Peterbilt 379.
