Minimizer fenders help truck win awards

News Truck Parts and Service Staff November 8, 2013

Minimizer’s award winning Chrome Poly fenders recently helped Scott Rud’s 2000 Peterbilt 379 win Best of Show for Working Bobtail at the October 2013 Heart of America Trucking Show in Kansas City, Kansas.

Rud’s rig, equipped with Minimizer Chrome Poly fenders, won multiple awards at the event including 2nd Place in Working Bobtail, 3rd Place in Custom Paint and 3rd Place in Custom Lighting. This win is far from the first time Rud’s 2000 Peterbilt has earned such merit.

In August 2013 at The Great American Trucking Show Rud took home both first place awards in Working Bobtail and in Custom Paint. He also outshone the competition in 2011 at The Great American Trucking Show. There he took first place in the Pride and Polish Contest, which highlights the nation’s most tricked-out rigs.

Rud, who owns Scott Rud Trucking, said he didn’t have to do anything to his new Minimizer Chrome Poly fenders. “They took care of themselves— always shining. The judges loved them. Frankly, I think the new fenders pushed it over the edge and got me the win.”

“Unveiling anything visually pleasing, virtually maintenance free and so solidly functional as our Chrome Poly fenders excites a lot of people—as we saw in 2011,” says Craig Kruckeberg, Minimizer’s CEO and Chief Visionary, said he was excited when the fenders rolled out in 2011. “The fact that the fenders have stood the test of time, however, makes me even more proud of Minimizer’s product innovation.”

“They are as remarkable as the day I installed them,” Rudd says of the fenders. “They shine, they don’t require maintenance and they don’t rust, crack or bend. Still, after all these years, no fender on the market can compete.”
