SHOW STOPPER: Canadian Ryan Danylchuch's black and orange beauty was enough to earn the prestigious Best-in-Show title at last year's competition.
JOPLIN, Mo. — The 27th Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck beauty contest will be held from at the Oak Grove 70 Petro June 18 to 20.
The Shell Rotella SuperRigs competition is considered to be one of the premiere truck beauty contests for actively working trucks. Owner/operator truckers from across the US and Canada compete for cash and prizes valued at $25,000. Additionally, 12 select drivers are chosen from that contest, to have their trucks featured in the 2010 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.
Trucks are judged by industry professionals who work for major trucking publications and broadcast companies. Judges score the rigs on exterior appearance, design, detail/finish, originality, and workmanship. In total, 25 working trucks receive awards for categories such as Best of Show, Tractor, Tractor/Trailer Combination and Classic categories.
Last year, Canadian Ryan Danylchuch of Winnipeg, earned the prestigious Best-in-Show title, plus a $10,000 cash prize. His outlaw-style 2001 Peterbilt 379 is now prominently displayed on the Shell Rotella SuperRigs 2009 calendar for the month of April.
Entrants for this year’s contest will be awarded a gift package valued at more than $50, while supplies last.
Events and attractions anticipated during the three-day contest include: daily raffles, a pet contest, Shell Rotella Road Show truck, the No. 29 Shell-Pennzoil Kevin Harvick show car, and the Shell racing simulator. Musical entertainment will include daily performances by recording artist and songwriter Joey Holiday and a Friday night concert, with that entertainer to be announced shortly.
