Canadians taste success at Shell Rotella SuperRigs – Truck News

Canadians enjoyed success at the 42nd Shell Rotella SuperRigs with Andrew Worth, driving for Jade Transport of Winnipeg, winning the third place in the working truck – limited mileage category.

Rookie participant Worth was very happy to be recognized during the three-day competition at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Tex. “I put in a lot of hard work, and there are a lot of beautiful trucks here. I am super happy and proud my hard work paid off,” he said.

Worth was showcasing a 2024 Kenworth W900B 100th anniversary limited edition fitted with a Cummins X15 Performance 565 HP and 18 speed manual transmission, hauling a tanker trailer.

Two trucks from Canada, one from Alberta and the other from Manitoba, caught the eye of judges and will be featured in the Shell Rotella 2025 calendar. Every year, 12 trucks from the show are highlighted in the following year’s calendar.

His “Classic Lady” is a 2024 589L 72” Flat Top Peterbilt fitted with a X15 565HP and 18 speed manual transmission.
