TMTV’s video on the road at Shell Rotella SuperRigs

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.
