10-4 Magazine / December 2018
and Russ Roy’s black 2018 Peterbilt 389
transfer (Bame Trucking). A few more
head-turners were Bryan Pfersching’s
black 2016 Kenworth W900L, AGT’s
slammed white Pete 579, Mike Ragan’s
red 2012 Peterbilt 389 with black stripes
(Hettinga Trans), and all the NAVA trucks.
At night, Kris Gaare’s black 389, Richard
Hettinga’s red 379 and Darrick Devine’s
black 379 were all shining just a little bit
brighter than everyone else.
Once all the awards were handed
out, the vendors started packing up and
the trucks began rolling, heading out
under the big inflatable Dynaflex arch,
towards home or their next destination.
Not having a booth at this event, we were
able to relax more than usual and enjoy
the weekend a bit more, just hanging out
with our trucking friends (you know who
you are) and taking pictures.
Truck show season is always fun
and exciting, but after going to eight
shows in five different states across the
country (running the booths and covering
the events) over the past eight months,
and spending 27 nights in hotel rooms
(yes, I went back and counted), the
thought of being done with travel for the
year and just being home (and doing my
“normal” job as editor) sounds nice.
As the official media sponsor of the
ATSC, it has been our pleasure covering
these events throughout the year. Our
congratulations go out to all the winners,
especially the National Champions. After
a few months of rest and recovery, we will
be refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to
start it all over again in Louisville, KY in
March 2019. Until then, here’s wishing
you all a safe winter and a happy Holiday
Season. See you in 2019!
