It is always nice to be recognized for a job well done, especially when it comes to vehicle maintenance.
Shell created its Shell Rotella Million Mile Haul of Fame specifically to those who respect their rigs and their engines, and take pride in a job well done.
Now in its second year, this exclusive club “seeks to honor an exclusive group of professional drivers who have driven a single vehicle whose engine has logged one million miles or more under the protection of Shell Rotella heavy duty oil,” according to Mark Reed, global brand manager for Shell Rotella.
The Shell Rotella Million Mile Haul of Fame began in Canada and was expanded to the U.S.
Jerry Kissinger, driver of a 1991 Mack Superliner, was honored as the first U.S. inductee into the Shell Rotella Million Mile Haul of Fame at the 2011 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, KY.
He had more than one million miles on his truck, all while using Shell Rotella T heavy duty oil in his engine.
Kissinger was presented with a Shell Rotella Million Mile Haul of Fame leather bomber jacket, an engraved key chain and a certificate of achievement during a special ceremony in front of fellow truckers.
Shell Rotella Million Mile Haul of Fame inductees must meet certain eligibility requirements, including proof that they have driven their vehicle for at least one million miles using only Shell Rotella heavy duty engine oil since at least the 250,000-mile mark.
Additionally, their million-mile engine must retain its original pistons, liners and rings.
Shell is looking for heavy duty truck owners who have what it takes to be a member of the Shell Rotella Million Mile Haul of Fame.
