The new Best of Show winner: The 2012 Peterbilt 389 belonging to William Rethwisch of Tomah, Wisc.
TOMAH, Wisc. — There’s a new Best of Show winner for this year’s Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck show.
In a statement today, Shell Rotella global brand manager Chris Guerrero, said “After completing our eligibility verification process for the Shell Rotella SuperRigs contest winners, it has been determined that the original winning entry chosen for the Best of Show category did not meet all of the eligibility requirements of a working truck and trailer in the Truck and Trailer category for the 2013 Shell RotellaSuperRigs contest. Therefore, the entry has been deemed ineligible for the Best of Show award.”
The new winner is the 2012 Peterbilt 389 of William Rethwisch of Tomah, Wis.; Best of Show first runner up is the 1986 359 Peterbilt of Jeremy Hassevoort of Hamilton, Mich., and the Best of Show second runner up is the 2013 Peterbilt 389 of Kevin Pascavis from Richfield, Wis.
“We’re thankful to all of the contestants who competed this year in the 31st annual Shell SuperRigs competition in Tomah and we want to congratulate this year’s final winners in the competition,” Guerrero said. “We look forward to continuing to grow this event as we celebrate and recognize some of the hardest working and best looking trucks on the road.”
The SuperRigs competition is a celebration of working trucks, but the definition of working truck is occasionally subject for some debate. Organizers and judges strive to maintain the spirit of the competition by awarding certain categories and spots in the prestigious SuperRigs calendar to actual working trucks.
