JOPLIN, Mo. — The Shell Rotella SuperRigs show will be celebrating its 30th anniversary lat the Speedco in Joplin, Mo. May 17-19.

Cash and prizes in excess of $25,000 will be awarded to the top working trucks that show up, including coveted spots in the SuperRigs calendar.

Organizers are also planning a truck parade through downtown Joplin as well as concerts and fireworks.

Speedco will play host this year. It’s located off Route I-44 at Exit 11. The company will be holding a grand re-opening celebration during the event, after its facilities were badly damaged during last year’s tornado.

Shell says it will reveal more details about its SuperRigs competition at the upcoming Mid-America Trucking Show.
