TMTV’s video on the road at Shell Rotella SuperRigs

Saskatchewan driver Rodger Nelson talks about entering the Shell Rotella SuperRigs competition for the first time with his blue, orange and chrome Peterbilt.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — While the rigs may be super, the weather certainly wasn’t on the first day of the Shell Rotella SuperRigs custom truck show.

A tornado warning put an early end to the judging and the heavy rain kept drivers from final touch-ups and polishing, but the deluge didn’t stop Rodger Nelson from giving TMTV a tour of his truck. The Saskatchewan owner/operator who drives for Titan Transport planned to enter a number of categories including tractor, best chrome, and best lights.

UPDATE Nelson took home 4th place in the Tractor Division, winning $500.

Here are some of the sights from opening day, including a couple of Canadians who arrived early.
