Western Star is hosting its third annual Serious Trucks Challenge at World of Concrete 2013 in Las Vegas. The Serious Trucks Challenge will take place Tuesday-Friday, February 5-8, during exhibit hours in the Silver Lot outside of the Las Vegas Convention Center. If you are headed to the event in Las Vegas and have a CDL, consider entering the event to show off your talents and take a brand new Star for a spin.
Just as in previous years, drivers will run through a series of challenges such as parallel parking, s-curves, driver side parking, blind side parking and backing up and stopping on a 42-foot long, steeply graded ramp, maybe even pouring concrete, all in a Star that can handle the maneuvers. If you’ve never had the chance to drive a Star, this would be it! Don’t miss your chance to drive a:
– 4900SF Kimble Mixer with a 380 hp, DD13 12.8L engine
– 4700SF Dump with a 12.8L 450hp DD13 engine
– 4700SB Manitex Crane with a 26 ton capacityand 345hp Cummins ISL engine
Also on display will be a 4900SB Twin Steer Mixer, a 6900XD with a 470hp DDC 60-12.7L engine and Chalmers 110,000 rear suspension, and a 4700SF McNeilus Mixer with a 2100 RPM ISL Cummins 350hp engine.
