It’s Showtime!

Custom trucks compete for recognition

custom trucksNow that winter has finally released its icy grip from most of the country, the show truck season is up and running. The 75 Chrome Shop edition of Overdrive magazine’s Pride & Polish competition recently found familiar faces on the winner’s podium, and Shell’s Super Rigs event opens up tomorrow (May 15) at Z-Max Dragway in Charlotte, NC.

Reigning Pride & Polish champ Vinnie Diorio’s 2013 Peterbilt 389/2008 MAC trailer, titled Trendsettin’, claimed Best of Show in the Limited-Mileage Combo category. Bill Rethwisch, another previous victor, won Best of Show with a 2013 Peterbilt 389/Polar Tanker named Blood, Sweat & Gass. A regular on the Price & Polish circuit, Bob Brinker scored another Best of Show in the Working Bobtail category with Legend of the Black Pearl, his pirate-themed 2000 Freightliner Classic.

Check out Overdrive Online for full details and photos of the winners.

Later this week, show truck competitors from around the country will gather in Charlotte for the 32nd Annual Shell Rotella Super Rigs competition. Over $25,000.00 in prize money and potential spots on the Super Rigs 2015 calendar will be on the line.
