SuperRigs 2016: #GiantsofJoplin in 16 tweets

The “Giants of Joplin”—the tagline Shell Rotella is using for the 2016 SuperRigs truck show—showed that the promotional posters displayed in downtown storefronts weren’t exaggerating the size and the beauty of the equipment on display at the Joplin Convention & Trade Center over the weekend. The rigs also took over Main Street Friday night for a parade, concert and fireworks display.

Perhaps most impressive was the way the dozens of rigs returned to the complicated show parking area and the drivers had every truck in its place in a matter of minutes. Polished steel and chrome aside, true professionals working together is an awesome thing to see.

For additional coverage, American Trucker has some more photos from the parade and plenty of detailed shots of the big winners at this year’s SuperRigs competition.
