The Shell ROTELLA® SuperRigs competition is the premier truck beauty contest for actively working trucks. Hard working owner/operator truckers from across the United States and Canada compete annually for more than $25,000 in cash and prizes. Twelve drivers will be selected to have their trucks featured in the 2019 Shell Rotella SuperRigs® calendar.

Judging will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, June 14 and 15, and between 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 16. Judging takes about 20 minutes and contestants do not need to be present to win.
