Texas O/O takes home the trophy of all trophies

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Truett Novosad held off six other finalists and took home the 2007 Truck-Lite Trophy from the National Association of Show Trucks (NAST).

The seven finalists are determined from champion award winning trucks from NAST events held throughout the year.

Novosad works his immaculately prepared white and blue 2001 Peterbilt doing heavy hauling. The former University of Houston football letterman (Class of 2000) grew up in trucking, traveling with his father starting in 1979. He and his wife Melissa have been showing for four years.

“This is great! Prior to winning the Truck-Lite Trophy,” Truett said. “The highlight of our showing career was being on the Shell Super Rigs calendar in 2007.”

The Truck-Lite Trophy was presented by Tim Walker, Truck-Lite executive vice president of Sales, Europe and Asia, and Bo Trout, president of NAST.

“The trucks represented here today are truly worthy of all the recognition we can give,” said Walker. “They are among the most beautiful to grace America’s highways. But more importantly, the seven drivers here today are profitable business people. They know the value of well prepared, well maintained equipment, and managing for safe, profitable operations.”

Established as a corporation in 1996, NAST is dedicated to encourage, support and promote activities related to the trucking industry by showing pride in trucks and truck operations; as well as to ensure uniformity, commonality, and fairness in all competitive truck events.
