The 30th Anniversary Shell Rotella SuperRigs® will be held May 17-19, 2012 at the Speedco in Joplin, Mo. Cash and prizes will be in excess of $25,000. Shell Rotella SuperRigs® will feature a number of fun and entertaining events for drivers, their families, and the entire community. A truck parade will be held in downtown Joplin, as well as concerts and fireworks.
Speedco will host this year’s SuperRigs® event adjacent to its Joplin store; located just off Route I-44 at Exit 11. Speedco will also be holding a grand re-opening celebration for its Joplin location, which was severely damaged by last year’s devastating tornado. More details about concerts, special events and prizes to be awarded at the 30th Shell Rotella SuperRigs® will be announced at the Mid-America Trucking Show in March.
The Shell Rotella SuperRigs® competition is the premier truck beauty contest for actively working trucks. Owner/operator truckers from across the United States and Canada will compete for cash and prizes. Additionally, 12 lucky drivers will be selected to have their trucks featured in the 2013 Shell Rotella SuperRigs® calendar. Every entrant in the contest will be awarded with a gift package valued at more than $50 while supplies last.
Trucks are judged by industry professionals who work for major trucking publications and broadcast companies. Judges score the rigs on exterior appearance, design, detail/finish, originality, and workmanship. In total, 18 working trucks receive awards for categories such as Best of Show, Tractor, Tractor/Trailer Combination and Classic categories.
