Some highlights of the Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar include:
- JANUARY – Kiegan Nelson from Hartland, Wisconsin is a third-generation driver and second-time Best of Show winner at Shell Rotella SuperRigs with his 2020 Peterbilt 389. He likes working on trucks the way many do with hot rods or motorcycles.

- JULY – Jimmy Ganski from Shantytown, Wisconsin was flying high after his first time at Shell Rotella SuperRigs. He and his family along with his 2014 Peterbilt 389 not only made the calendar, but are prominently featured on the front cover.
- NOVEMBER –Tony Huttenstine II said he looked at Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendars as a kid and thought “Man, if I could get on it ...” This year, he and Emily Pohl brought their Kenworth W900L that is built around the sleeper and features a mid-90’s vibe and secured a place in the calendar.
