The 24th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck beauty contest is set for Thursday-Saturday, June 22-24 at the Sacramento 49er Travel Plaza in Sacramento, Calif. Working truck owners will compete for more than $10,000 in cash and prizes, and 12 winners will appear beside their trucks in the 2007 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.

The contest is “a fun way to say ‘thank you’ to all our loyal Shell Rotella T customers in the trucking community,” says Scott Harvey, Shell Lubricants marketing manager. “We are proud to continue the tradition of hosting this beloved industry event.”

Industry professionals will score the rigs on exterior appearance, design, detail/finish, originality and workmanship. Ribbons will be awarded in categories including Best of Show, Tractor, Tractor/Trailer Combination, Classic, Chrome, Theme, Mural, Lights and People’s Choice.

Entering the contest is free, and each entrant will receive a gift package containing a gallon of Shell Rotella T 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Engine Oil, a gallon of Shell Rotella ELC Extended Life Coolant/Antifreeze, a tube of Shell Retinax LX Heavy-Duty Grease, a quart of Shell Spirax EW extended-warranty gear oil, a SuperRigs T-shirt, a SuperRigs baseball cap and a 2006 SuperRigs calendar.

Entrants can register on arrival and enter the judging line at their convenience. Judging takes about 20 minutes and will take place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thursday, June 22, and Friday, June 23 and between 8 a.m. and noon Saturday, June 24. The Best Lights judging will be held at dusk Friday, June 23. People’s Choice voting will take place throughout the event. The award ceremony will be 1:30 p.m. Saturday, June 24.
