The 22nd annual Rotella SuperRigs Truck Beauty
Contest will be held June 24-26 at the Bosselman Travel Plaza off I-80 at Exit
312 North in Grand Island, NE.
Last year, about 100 contestants from the United States and
Canada participated in the event, which was held in Lodi, OH.
Participants compete for more than $10,000 in cash and
prizes, while 12 lucky truckers will be selected to appear on the 2005 Rotella
SuperRigs calendar. In all, 18 working trucks will receive awards for Best of
Show, Tractor, Tractor/Trailer Combination and Classic categories. A panel of
celebrity judges will score the rigs on exterior appearance, design,
detail/finish, originality and workmanship. Judging takes about 20 minutes and
contestants do not need to be present to win.
The contest is free to all participants. Every entrant will
receive a gift package consisting of one gallon of Shell Rotella T SAE15W-40
multigrade engine oil, one gallon of Shell Rotella ELC extended-life coolant, a
tube of Shell Retinax LC grease, a Rotella SuperRigs hat and T-shirt, and a
Shell Rotella T Mini Maglite.
Shell Rotella T heavy-duty engine oil has been the Rotella
SuperRigs sponsor since 1981. Entrants can register upon arrival and enter the
judging line whenever they are ready.
