The 2020 Overdrive‘s Pride & Polish virtual contest concluded Friday night to close out Overdrive‘s GATS Week, with seven trucks and their owners being named champs.

Three finalists were chosen in each of seven categories by Overdrive reader voting over a two-week period this month. Custom truck owners submitted 80 entries into the contest, and these entries received hundreds of online votes. Winners were selected by a panel of editorial judges. (Catch all the finalists, too, in the video of the live broadcast posted below.)
