FERGUS, Ont.- Thousands of truckers converged on this rural community from July 22 to 23 during the 15th annual Fergus Truck Show. And more than 475 trucks competed for numerous awards (and bragging rights) in one of the largest show and shine competitions in the country.

For Ron McKerracher and Andra Soepboer, however, the day held special significance. They exchanged vows at 2 p.m. on Saturday, standing beside his 2000 Mack Vision. Although a small number of guests were actually invited, the ceremony quickly drew a large crowd.

As with any show and shine competition, however, it was the trucks themselves that drew the most attention.

In the Best Truck of the Show category, Mike Duffy of Mike Duffy Trucking won first place, and Duane Watson of J and R Hall Transport won second. Duffy also won first prize in the category of Best Working Conventional Without Sleeper. In the Best Owner/Operator’s Working Truck category, Randy Ashley of Vandermarel Trucking, in Fergus, won first prize, and Cindy and Jason Schlueter of Fortress Trucking won second.

The Best Working Cabover prize went to Rodney Orr of Challenger Motor Freight. The Best 2000 or Newer Company-Owned Working Truck category went to Scott McPhearson of G. McPhearson Trucking. n
