“When we received this truck two years ago we weren’t thrilled that it was spec'd with an UltraShift, now we can't imagine driving anything else. It's easier to maneuver, pulls hills better and notifies you if the RPMs aren't right.” — Ken and Lori Adams

From the two stock cars to the team uniforms and tool kits for extra parts, this husband and wife team hauls anything Rusty Wallace Racing may need. Spec'd with an Eaton UltraShift® automated transmission, this is the third NASCAR season in their 2006 Freightliner Coronado.

“With the UltraShift, the cab is roomier and it's safer. You’re more focused on the mirrors and the traffic because you don't have to look down to shift and check the RPMs, it does it for you.”
