Meet the competitorsYou folks rule. Back in the April issue we introduced you to the elite group of 60 Top Truck Challenge 2005 hopefuls. As we've done for the past 10 years we asked you to scrutinize the candidates and cast your ballots for the 10 trucks you want to see do battle in Top Truck Challenge 2005. Well, you folks did a great job -- our offices were inundated with a record number of ballots. As we tallied them it became crystal-clear that you put some serious thought into your selections.Now it's time to hang on tight, because the next 10 pages will blow the lid off who's in this year's Top Truck Challenge. Thanks to those of you who voted, we have a great collection of rigs. Nicely done, dear readers.
