HOUSTON, Tex. — The 22nd annual ROTELLA SuperRigs Truck Beauty Contest will be held June 24-26 at the Bosselman Travel Plaza in Grand Island, Neb.
Last year, some 100 contestants from the U.S. and Canada participated in the event, which was held in Lodi, Ohio.
Participants compete for more than $10,000 in cash and prizes, while 12 lucky truckers will be selected to appear on the 2005 ROTELLA SuperRigs calendar.
In all, 18 working trucks will receive awards for Best of Show, Tractor, Tractor/Trailer Combination and Classic categories. A panel of celebrity judges will score the rigs on exterior appearance, design, detail/finish, originality, and workmanship. Judging takes about 20 minutes and contestants do not need to be present to win.
The contest is free to all participants. Every entrant will receive a gift package consisting of one gallon of Shell ROTELLA T SAE15W-40 multigrade engine oil, one gallon of Shell ROTELLA ELC Extended Life Coolant/Antifreeze, a tube of Shell RETINAX LC grease, a ROTELLA SuperRigs hat and t-shirt, and a Shell ROTELLA T mini-maglight.
The Bosselman Travel Plaza is located in central Nebraska, off I-80 at Exit 312 North.
Entrants can register on site upon arrival and enter the judging line whenever they are ready. Contest hours are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, June 24 and 25; and 8 a.m. – noon on Saturday, June 26.
