Ready to roll? SuperRigs opens Thursday in Joplin, MO

Does your truck have what it takes to be a “Giant of Joplin” at 2016 Rotella SuperRigs? If you think so, then Shell is asking you to join them at the Joplin (MO) Convention & Trade Center this week. Registration for the annual show, which attracts trucks and truckers from around the country, begins at 7am Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and the judging line opens at 7:30 each day.

After a busy day experiencing Shell Rotella SuperRigs’ hospitality and checking out the trucks, the party moves to downtown Joplin.  Many of the SuperRigs’ competitors will travel to the historic city center on Friday where they will stage their rigs, turn on their lights and pump up the music.
