Pat Eilen's 2006 Peterbilt has turned a lot of heads over the last several months, including those of Shell officials who chose the rig as January's featured show truck.
HOUSTON, Texas — Thirteen of the most beautiful trucks on the road are currently enjoying the glamour shot of a lifetime courtesy of the 2007 Shell ROTELLA SuperRigs Calendar. Similar to athletes being featured on the cover of major sporting magazines, Shell reps say they consider being included in the Shell calendar as the pinnacle of the show-truck world.
The calendar is a product of the 24th annual Shell ROTELLA SuperRigs contest in Sacramento, Calif. The contest was created to recognize working trucks and their devoted drivers, who dedicate time, sweat and income to their pride and joy. For 24 years, thousands of truck drivers from all over North America have travelled to the contest to show off their most prized possession.
We cannot begin to explain how much we appreciate what these truck drivers do for our country, said Mark Albert, heavy-duty installed and OEM marketing manager, Shell Lubricants. Driving a truck is a demanding job, and is one that should not be taken for granted. The Shell ROTELLA SuperRigs calendar is a way of thanking those independent truckers who manage to stand above the rest.
The calendar is available online at www.Rotella.com. Information and photos from the 2006 Shell ROTELLA SuperRigs contest are also available at the Web site. Plans for the 25th Annual Shell ROTELLA SuperRigs contest will be announced in early 2007.
