Irby Attends the Gulf Coast Big Rig Truck Show and Wins

Aug 7, 2023

Irby’s top of the line equipment empowers our people and projects to be the best they can be. Casey Lawrence, Irby Truck Driver, and his family recently attended the annual Gulf Coast Big Rig Truck Show. This event promotes the trucking industry through competition and community with the core goal of supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.

The show took place on Friday, July 21st and Saturday, July 22nd in Biloxi at the Mississippi Coast Convention Center. Casey entered his Irby truck into the “Combo” truck class competition, which includes truck and trailer combination rigs.

Casey’s truck ended up being the very last truck to be judged in the Combo category. There were more than 90 trucks entered in the contest, and Casey’s Irby truck won two awards! Irby won First Place for Combo Best Interior, and Third Place Combo Overall. Casey said it was an honor to win. More importantly, though, Casey enjoyed the camaraderie, industry networking, and showing that he holds his truck to the highest standards.

Way to go, Casey!
