Mid-America Trucking Show

Did you make it to the Mid-America Trucking Show last month?

We enjoyed seeing all the new products, meeting with vendors and seeing old friends but one of the highlights was the 25th Anniversary Paul K. Young Truck Beauty Championships. The results are in the record books and there were some amazing Class 8 beauties at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show. To see them all follow this link to the 2014 PKY Truck Beauty Championship results.

We couldn't resist showing the People's Choice winner here but if you have some time we encourage you to follow that link to see them all. But we'll warn you, you'll end up spending a lot of time looking at all the entries!

The winner of the People's Choice award goes to Brian Davis of Davis Brothers in Owensville, Indiana with this 2005 Peterbilt/2012 Wilson called "Superfreak." Nice job!
