Circle June 11-13 on the calendar and head over to Selma, Texas. The 33rd Shell Rotella SuperRigs is slated for those days at Retama Park in Selma. This year’s theme is “Thoroughbreds of Trucking.”
In addition to glistening, working trucks, show goers can also catch some horse racing on Friday evening and Saturday night. Located approximately 20 miles northeast of San Antonio off of Exit 174-A on I-35, the racetrack hosts quarter horse and thoroughbred racing.
Twelve drivers will compete for a chance to be featured in the 2016 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar. More than $25,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to truckers during the truck beauty contest. Valued at more than $50, entrants will receive a gift package.
Judging will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, June 11 and 12, and between 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, June 13. Land Line Magazine Managing Editor Jami Jones will be back judging again this year.
Country musician Phil Pritchett will be performing for the crowd on Thursday, June 11. Friday night will include the truck parade on the race track followed by a fireworks display and another performance by Phil Pritchett. Games, classic cars, a barbecue cook-off, the Rotella Road Show and other events will also be held.
