The Very Super Tractor-Trailers and Tractors at SuperRigs

The 2015 Shell Rotella SuperRigs truck competition always sees stunning tractor and tractor-trailer entries. In the tractor category, Ramon Rodriguez deserves special mention, journeying from Salinas, Calififornia, with two stunning entries. One won for Show Truck and the other placed 4th in the Tractor category. 

Tractor-trailers are always tops in my mind for the sheer square footage of the "canvas" that has to be covered. In judging, I always try to imagine what a family in a four-wheeler must think when they see a custom combo roll down the highway. That's what Superrigs is all about: working trucks that reflect a pride in our industry.

TRACTOR-TRAILER DIVISION


1st Place
Bobby Delon of Von Ormy, Texas, took the top prize in the Tractor-Trailer Division with this 2004 Peterbilt 379 Trailer/2014 Rango. Delon runs local around San Antonio. Appropriate to the theme, the truck features suicide doors. Delon's truck features a death’s head – a popular theme at the 2015 SuperRigs – on the truck’s hood. All around finish and interior are stunning.

2nd Place 
In addition to winning for Best Theme (see Best of 2015 SuperRigs blog), Dustin Pope's 2003 Kenworth W900L/2010 Utility 3000R Reefer took 2nd place in the Tractor-Trailer Division. The detail in the mural on both sides of Pope’s Western-theme trailer includes many whimsical figures like this armadillo. Pope is out of Greenville, Texas.

3rd Place
Shawn Cielke, 2007 Kenworth T600 Trailer/2014 Wabash Reefer, Haugan, Montana

4th Place
Truett Novosad, 2007 Peterbilt, College Station, Texas

5th Place
Duane Hostetler, 2006 Peterbilt 370/2005 Reitnour Flatbed, Belleville, Pennsylvania

TRACTOR DIVISION

1st Place
Billy Griffin, 2011 Peterbilt 389, Irving, Texas
Top place in the tractor category went to local heavy hauler Billy Griffin. This tractor is immaculately turned out and stunningly simple for such a hard working truck.




2nd Place
David Foster, 2005 Kenworth W900L, Joplin, Missouri
Second place in the Tractor Division was clinched by David Foster. The truck is old and was partially destroyed in the Joplin, Missouri, tornado several years back. Foster just keeps working it and working on it.





3rd Place
Humberto Cano, 2014 Peterbilt 389, Boerne, Texas

4th Place
Not only did Ramon R. Rodriguez take the Show Truck title with his 2015 Peterbilt 389 Trailer/Western 2015 Step Deck with its exquisitely done nightmare mural, he took 4th Place in the Tractor Division for his 2000 Peterbilt 379 Extended Hood. Rodriguez  if from Salinas, California. 

5th Place
Caleb Eilers, 2000 Peterbilt 379, Odessa, Texas
The quality of the turnout can be judged from the fact that this green machine placed 5th in the tractor category. Eilers hauls heavy out of the West Texas oilfields.
