CHILLIWACK, B.C. — Three top winners at last weekend’s B.C. Big Rig Weekend held at Chilliwack Heritage Park, have been selected for the 2009 Wowtrucks Calendar: Canada’s own Big Rig Calendar.
Chicky Drouillard from Kelowna B.C., won the truck/trailer combo trophy with his 1987 Peterbilt 379 EXH. Ron Ruddick from Mission B.C. won the people’s choice award at the show with his 2004 Peterbilt 357, and Keith Bradley from Barrier B.C. took the inaugural “Wowtrucks 365” award with his 2007 Peterbilt 379.
“New this year to Wowtrucks is a nation-wide competition to get into Canada’s Big Rig Showpiece,” says photographer and proprietor of Wowtrucks, David Benjatschek.
“Three winners at the four major Show’n’Shines across the country: the Fergus Truck Show, Rodeo du Camion and Pro-Trucker Magazine’s Alberta and British Columbia Big Rig Weekends, will all qualify for a spot in the calendar.”
There is also a wildcard spot which will be awarded by a vote through the website: www.wowtrucks.com, he adds.
The next selection will be made at the Fergus Truck Show, Fergus Ontario, to be held on July 24 -28.
