"Despite the fact that general economic uncertainty continues to negatively impact demand for new trucks, we were able to increase new Class 8 truck deliveries by 25% as compared to the same quarter last year and 58% over the second quarter of 2010, reaching the highest levels of new Class 8 truck deliveries we've seen since the fourth quarter of 2008," said W. M. "Rusty" Rush, President and Chief Executive Officer for Rush Enterprises, Inc."Major oilfield and general freight fleet customers have gained enough confidence in their business outlook to begin to invest in new Class 8 trucks this quarter. New truck sales are clearly poised for a return to historically normal levels as customers have accepted the new emissions-compliant engine technology and pricing, and the age of the current fleet continues to drive the need for truck replacement," explained Rusty Rush.
