      CarHauler Takes the Win at Shell ROTELLA SuperRigs

      How this Victory Honors a Fathers Legacy and Dream for his Son

      Georgia-based Car- Hauler owner-operator Eric Turner Sr. earned Best of Show at the 36th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs in Raphine, Va., this past weekend with his 2015 Peterbilt 389 and 2018 Wally-Mo car hauler.

      For winning the competition, Turner took home $10,000 from Shell Rotella and $5,000 from Mac Trailer. Turner’s Pete also picked up the award for Best Interior at the show.

      “It feels so good to win the best of show,” Turner said. “Like I said earlier when I was in the judging lane, when I was growing up, all my dad ever had on his tool box was a Shell ROTELLA calendar. And he always said, ‘son one day, you’re going to be on that.’ I’ve never seen that vision, but I guess he’s seen it for me. My dad passed away last year. Thank you, Daddy.”

      Matt Brune, out of Caldwell, Texas, picked up Best of Show first runner-up, good for $4,000 from Shell Rotella and $3,000 from Mac Trailer, with his 1999 Peterbilt 379. Jay Blackbourne, of Fennimore, Wis., earned Best of Show second runner up for his 1999 Peterbilt 379.  Article courtesy of Overdrive
