Red & Chrome: Trucker represents Chiefs Kingdom with custom semi ‘Warpaint’


CDLLife recently caught up with a truck driver who wears his Arrowhead Pride all over his custom Kenworth semi truck nicknamed “Warpaint.”

Sedalia, Missouri-based trucker Rob Hardwick has been turning heads on the highways because of his 2008 Kenworth W-900 that he customized to show his love for the Kansas City Chiefs football team.

The truck features an E Model CAT Engine and an 18 speed overdrive transmission — but that probably isn’t why it gets so much attention from excited Chiefs fans both on and off the road.

The truck is unmissable — bright red, shiny chrome, and decorated with decals of feathers and the team’s mascot Warpaint, who trots out onto the field to celebrate a team score.

Hardwick says got the idea for the truck after he called into a sports radio show, where the host introduced him as “Tomahawk riding across the Kingdom on his trusty steed Warpaint.”

“It’s red, it’s classy, it’s loud. This is my steel horse, riding across the Kingdom,” Hardwick said.

With the Chiefs making their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years, Hardwick and Warpaint are sure to get a lot more love as they travel the highways around Arrowhead.

Check out Hardwick and Warpaint in the exclusive video below.
