All Hands on Deckplates

You should see all these shiny trucks. There are more than 90 trucks in competition between the contenders for the NAST Truck-Lite Trophy and the Paul K Young Memorial Truck Championships. It is a movable feast of epic proportions from across the United States & Canada. All gathered in one place to celebrate another year of opportunity.

Freight volumes are up, OEMs are painting rosy pictures of projected truck sales, and out in the parking lots, owners, drivers, friends, family, cleaners and polishers are diligently scrubbing the last bits of road grime from trucks that were hauling freights just a short time ago.

They're so clean you'd think they had been shrink-wrapped.
Judging for the NAST Truck-Lite Trophy is finished. Judging for the PKY starts at 9 a.m. And in between there will be blood, sweat, lights and fine tuning.

I'm stoked.
