SuperRigs kicking off Thursday

| Tuesday, June 16, 2009

The fun and competition for the 27th Annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs kicks off Thursday at the Oak Grove Petro in Oak Grove, Mo.

Contestants in the 27th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs event this Thursday through Saturday, June 18-20, will have a shot at $25,000 in prizes.

SuperRigs, considered the premier truck beauty contest for actively working trucks, takes place at the Oak Grove 70 Petro, located at Exit 28 on Interstate 70 in Oak Grove, MO.

Each day kicks off with event judging and ends with contests and awards. The time in between is packed with raffles, entertainment, a pet contest, trucker bingo, sights and bright lights. Twelve winners will have their trucks featured in the 2010 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.

Singer CodyMcCarver performs at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 19, riding the success of recent hit singles and videos. The Tennessee native describes his roots as classic country, gospel and southern rock.

Singer and OOIDA member Joey Holiday performs each day of the event. Other highlights include the No. 29 Shell-Pennzoil Kevin Harvick show car, the Shell racing simulator and, of course, the truck show.

OOIDA’s touring truck, “Spirit of the American Trucker,” will be on display. Drop by and see Howard and Pam Hart who will be there signing up new OOIDA members. As they would say, “Bring a friend.”

Land Line Magazine Senior Editor Jami Jones will once again serve on the SuperRigs judges’ panel.

And, if show truck competition isn’t enough for you, you can test your truck driving skills, just trying to get into the Petro parking lot, courtesy of the city of Oak Grove, MO, and its road construction at the truck stop’s entrance. So be sure to watch for signs directing you into the parking lot.
