The full list of winners from the 75 Chrome Shop’s Pride & Polish show – held April 27-29 – is available on Overdrive’s sister website Custom RigsMag.com. With it are a photo gallery of the four Best of Show trucks (featured above, too) and a gallery of Spencer J. Fisher’s photos of the event’s light show, which began Saturday at sunset.
Randy Stroup’s 2005 Peterbilt 379 and matching tanker won Best of Show in the limited-mileage combo category. John O’Keefe’s 2007 Peterbilt 379 and 2011 Mac dump combo won Best of Show in the working combo class, and Ron Huey’s 2010 International ProStar won Best of Show, working bobtail honors. Arnold Frankie Jr.’s 1994 Kenworth W900L won Best of Show, limited-mileage bobtail.
All four trucks are now in the running for the 2012 Pride & Polish National Championship, which culminates in Dallas in August at the Great American Trucking Show.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
