Western Stars shine in family day despite November rain

A crowd of over 500 braved inclement weather in Toowoomba on Saturday for the Western Star Trucks’ Show n Shine in which North Queensland Truck and Machinery Movements was awarded Truck of the Show.

The second annual Show n Shine event hosted by Penske Commercial Vehicles and supported by newly aligned Penske dealer, Pengelly Truck and Trailers, included appearances from Supercars drivers Fabian Coulthard and Scott McLaughlin from Shell V-Power Racing, and live music performances from Mick Lindsay and Troy Cassar-Daley.

North Queensland Truck and Machinery Movements was recognised for its Phatcat 4800 prime mover as Truck of the Show.

Brown Linehaul was awarded Best Truck Under 5 Years and Mansell Heavy Towing was acknowledged as the Best Truck Under 10 Years.

Other acknowledgements included Case Linehaul for Best Western Star Fleet, Mansell Heavy Towing for Best Western Star Rigid and Heavy Haulage Assets for Best Heritage Truck.

Kevin Dennis, Managing Director Penske Commercial Vehicles, said Show n Shine was a tangible outcome of the commitment it had made to increase its direct-to-customer activities.

“Our second Western Star Trucks Show n Shine was a fantastic success,” said Kevin Dennis, Managing Director Penske Commercial Vehicles.

“There was a hugely impressive array of trucks on display for all the attendees to see from the 2800 through to the 6900. It was great to give customers the opportunity to meet each other and chat about their much‐ loved Stars,” he said.


“Despite the weather dampening the afternoon’s activities, we were pleased to see the sun reappear prior to the concert.”


“We also had fantastic support from our suppliers and sponsors who helped to make it the great day it was.”
