“Congratulations to Brian Dreher for winning Best of Show at Shell Rotella SuperRigs and to all of the award winners,” said Annie Peter, North American marketing manager at Shell Rotella.
“Our 38th annual Shell Rotella SuperRigs looked a little different this year, but the same spirit of community rose to the top.”
Dreher will appear in the 2022 Shell Rotella SuperRigs calendar.
Other first-place winners were Truett Novosad in the Tractor category for his 2007 Peterbilt 379, Kiegan Nelson for his 2013 Peterbilt 389 in the Tractor Trailer division, and David Foster won the Classic Division for his 2005 Kenworth W900L.

Each winner will receive MyMilesMatter reward points and a limited-edition Shell Rotella jacket.
