Big Rigs Arrive in Albert Lea for Yearly Competition
A huge yearly competition has come to Albert Lea. It's the Shell Rotella SuperRigs competition at the Trails Travel Center.
It's basically a big, big rig truck beauty competition. Truckers are competing for $25,000 in cash and also to be featured in one of the 12 spots in the Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar. A spot in that calendar is a highly desired spot, according to ABC 6 News.
Annie Peter is a brand manager for Shell Rotella North America. She told ABC 6 News, "'Being featured on the Calendar is the highlight of the event. There is a lot of history and heritage tied to it, so some of these drivers, their fathers have been featured in years past and so they're here to kind of continue the legacy and be featured as well.'"
So if you're cruising by the Trails Travel Center this weekend, you might see a lot of nice-looking trucks hanging out there! The competition goes through Saturday.
Hang out with Carly Ross on The Mighty 920 KDHL weekdays 1-5pm!
