More than $30,000 in cash and prizes will be on the line at Shell Rotella SuperRigs’ 30th anniversary competition May 17-19 at the Speedco in Joplin, Mo.
A truck parade will be held in downtown Joplin, as well as concerts and fireworks.
Speedco will host this year’s event adjacent to its Joplin store, just off I-44 at exit 11. Speedco will also hold a grand re-opening celebration for the Joplin location, which was severely damaged by last year’s tornado.
Owner-operators will compete for cash and prizes. Additionally, 12 drivers will have their trucks featured in the 2013 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar. Every contest entrant will receive a gift package valued at more than $50 while supplies last.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
