The Shell Rotella SuperRigs competition is headed to White’s Travel Center in Rahpine, Virginia, June 14-16. That’s just one of many truck shows on the June calendar.

The theme for the 36th annual SuperRigs this summer is “Tribute to Toughness.” Participants could win cash and prizes up to $25,000. Truckers also have the opportunity to be selected for the 2019 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.

Also on the June calendar is the American Truck Historical Society National Convention and Truck Show in Lexington, Kentucky May 31 to June 2. Events at the show include live music, a truck parade to old downtown Lexington, a scavenger hunt and fireworks. Antique trucks will be on display.
