Behind the scenes

supertruck2.jpgIt was shortly after the 2006 Expedite Expo that Lawrence McCord, General Manager of Expediters began work on a concept he had been nurturing for months.  Inspired by the work of the Chrome Shop Mafia of TV's "Trick My Truck", McCord presented his concept of a customized expediter truck to a select group of sponsors that included Speedco Tire and Lube Services, Alumi-Bunk Corporation and Indiana Truck Sales.  The Chrome Shop Mafia was commissioned to construct the vehicle and today we have the result:  the wildest expediter truck ever - the Speedco Supertruck!

Yes, you can win this tricked out, fully customized expediter truck in the Speedco Supertruck Driveaway Sweepstakes!  This Class 8 Mack Vision has undergone the full Chrome Shop Mafia treatment

and is ready for a lucky winner to take possession and put it to work!
