An expedite truck tricked out by the group made famous from Country Music Television's "Trick My Truck" series, made its debut at MATS prior to going on tour around the country. The supertruck will be awarded to one winner during the annual Expedite Expo in Ohio on July 27-28.
Mark Clark, president and CEO of Speedco, said the 2000 Mack CX613 tractor is stretched to an expediter wheelbase of 317 inches, featuring an air-ride chassis and cab, powered by a 460 horsepower Mack E-7 engine with a 10-speed Mack transmission.
Some 400 man hours went into the Supertruck's incredible custom painting and striping job, featuring a drag-racing theme. The Chrome Shop Mafia also performed custom chrome and interior work.
The Supertruck will be on display not only at Speedco locations, but also at expediter carrier driver appreciation events through June 27.
Drivers can register to win the Supertruck at tour events, as well as at all Speedco locations across the United States, and at any Alumi-Bunk location. Six finalists will be selected in a random drawing and will receive transportation to the annual Expedite Expo in Wilmington, Ohio, July 27 and 28.
An additional six finalists will be selected in a random drawing during the Expo from all eligible on-site entries. Each finalist will receive a key to the Supertruck, and the finalist whose key starts the truck wins the grand prize. A first prize of Yokohama tires, a second prize of Speedco Preventive Maintenance for one year, and a third prize of a $500 Shell gift card will be awarded in another drawing.
