The Great American Truck show held annually, has over 500 exhibitors that represent truck, trailer,engine, and parts within the trucking industry. A special attraction at the event is Overdrive’s Pride and Polish Truck Beauty Contest. The contest has numerous categories where hundreds of drivers can enter their rigs for competition.
Benjamin Cadle, Bennett Motor Express owner/operator of two years, was awarded second place prize for Working BobTail-First Show-2012 and Newer. Ben’s rig is a 2013 Freightliner Coronado with a 500hp Detroit engine.
Benjamin’s grandfather and father were both truck drivers, and Benjamin knew growing up that one day he wanted to be a truck driver too. His father always dreamed of personalizing his rig in a special way, but neither had the money nor time to do so. It has always been a dream for Benjamin to personalize his rig, so winning this award meant more to him than just a title, it gave him the opportunity to honor his father.
