Overdrive's virtual Pride & Polish competition now open

With truck show season in full swing, Overdrive’s decades-running annual Pride & Polish competition is back in virtual format, accepting entries with hopes of bringing together the best of the best from around the nation. 

Overdrive’s 2022 virtual Pride & Polish competition opens today, August 1. Following the submission period, the competition will turn over to a public vote in which Overdrive readers will select their favorites in five categories -- Working Bobtail, Working Combo, Limited Mileage/Show, Antique and Interior.

Winners and finalists in each will be unveiled to put a wrap on the truck-show season in October -- all will receive award plaques. Last year’s awards event was hosted by Robb Mariani, truck enthusiast and host of the former “American Trucker” television show.
