Kenworth Owners Capture Honors at PKY Truck Beauty Championship
Each Win All-Expense Paid Trips to Kenworth Chillicothe Assembly Plant
KIRKLAND, Wash., April 15, 2019 - Three Kenworth customers earned all-expense paid trips for two to visit the Kenworth Chillicothe assembly plant in Ohio, after winning the inaugural “Top Three Kenworths in the Show” competition at the 30th PKY Truck Beauty Championship held as part of the 2019 Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS). Kenworth was the exclusive truck OEM sponsor for this year’s PKY championship, which is named for MATS founder Paul K. Young.
The Top Three Kenworths in Show included two custom built Kenworth W900Ls and a W900. In addition to the trip, the winners received a Kenworth trophy and a $3,000 gift certificate from PACCAR Parts.
“We had an excellent turnout, and there were many impressive Kenworths featured in the PKY Truck Beauty Championship this year,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “You could tell that our Top Three Kenworths in the Show winning owners invested a great deal of time and effort to each showcase a Kenworth truck that stood out against the rest of the competition.”

“The Kenworth W900L was a fun project for us,” said James Williams. “Many hours went into working on the truck, and it was well worth it. We received numerous positive comments on our W900L at MATS, and the judges of the championship appreciated our truck as well.”
The three winners – accompanied by one guest each – of the all-expenses paid trip will participate in the “Kenworth: The Right Choice” customer event, which opens with a May 22 dinner in Columbus, Ohio. The following day (May 23) is highlighted by their special red-carpet tour of the Kenworth Chillicothe assembly plant. They also will have an opportunity to drive the new Kenworth W990 during the event’s Kenworth truck ride and drive, attend Kenworth T880S and Kenworth T680 walkaround presentations, visit the supplier fair, and listen to informative classroom presentations.
