Stars out in Penrith Show n Shine

The third annual Western Star Trucks Show n Shine at the iconic Museum of Fire saw Stars of all kinds out on show!


Supported by Penske Commercial Vehicles dealers Clancy’s Truck and Trailer, Dwyers Truck Centre, and Penske Power Systems Sydney, the Show n Shine was judged across several categories with ‘Truck of the Show’ awarded to JT’s Earthworks and Bulk Haulage’s 4800 tipper.

Shell V-Power Racing Team Supercar drivers Fabian Coulthard and Scott McLaughlin wowed crowds, who also got around the dodgem cars, a super slide, food trucks, Hype band, and lots more.

"It was a beautiful day in Penrith for the third installment of our Show n Shine event," says Western Star Trucks, Penske Commercial Vehicles national sales manager Dale Christensen.

"An absolute success, we had a fantastic turnout of trucks across all categories – from heritage White trucks, to tippers, to fleets, the full gamut of Stars was represented. 

"It’s always a difficult decision choosing the Truck of the Show but this year’s JT’s Earthworks entry was a clear favourite among the fans and judging panel.

"Thank you to all our passionate Western Star customers for shining up their trucks and making yesterday the huge success it was.

"Thank you also to all our major sponsor partners including Allison Transmission, Cummins, Detroit, and Meritor, and our other valued supporters who were also instrumental in the successful day that was had," he says.
