The Shell Rotella SuperRigs competition features only actively working trucks. Owner-operator truckers from across the United States and Canada will compete for cash and prizes valued at $25,000. Additionally, 12 drivers will be selected to have their trucks featured in the 2012 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar. Every entrant in the contest will be awarded 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.
