‘Heroic work of truck drivers’ to be celebrated through virtual truck showcase


The 38th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck beauty contest is going online this year thanks to the pandemic.

Despite the unique circumstances of this year’s show, organizers still want it to celebrate the difficult, essential work truck drivers do for this country every day. Enter this year’s theme: “Legends of the Road.”

The show was originally scheduled to be held at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas on June 4th-6th, but will now take place exclusively online through photo and video submissions. 

Truck drivers may enter their rigs, and even themselves, in the following categories:

  • Most Hardworking Trucker – Drivers are encouraged to share their personal story of hard work and perseverance over the last year. 
  • People’s Choice – All viewers are encouraged to browse all truck entries and pick their favorite. 

The judging panel of trucking industry professionals will also pick a Best of Show winner, giving the winning truck and driver the opportunity to be featured in the 2022 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.

Entries can be submitted from August 10th – 21st, with up to 10 photos and two videos no longer than two minutes each per entry. Winners will be announced during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week September 14th-18th.

“North American truck drivers have faced unprecedented challenges on the road this year and we appreciate the essential work they do every day,” said Annie Peter, North American marketing manager for Shell Rotella.

“We believe it is important to hold Shell Rotella SuperRigs in order to celebrate and highlight their hard work and to showcase many of the amazing looking trucks that are on the road,” she continued. “Drivers will be able to post photos and videos to highlight their truck and share its story with the trucking community.”
