2021 Apex Capital Client Calendar Contest Winner

Big Truck and Little Truck: Danco Transport Wins the 2021 Apex Capital Client Calendar Contest
Daniel Cortez, owner of Louisiana-based Danco Transport, thought the visual appeal of a big truck and a little truck would make for a great truck photo to enter in the 2021 Apex Capital Client Calendar contest.
He was right. Danco Transport won the coveted cover spot of the 2021 Apex Capital Client Calendar. Cortez’s winning photo is an undeniable example of creativity and playfulness. In the foreground of the pic is a toy truck that looks like a miniature version of the big truck behind it. The picture is framed by a rusty railcar.
“I will always be a kid at heart,” says Cortez, “so when I found a guy who could make a model of the actual truck, I had to have it. I told my wife it didn’t matter how much the model cost; it was a must have.”
As for the photo’s background location, Cortez didn’t have to go far. “The photo is taken in Raceland, Louisiana next to the Raceland Sugar Mill. This is where I park the truck when I’m home and thought the railcars would make a nice background for this effect.”

Apex Shows Appreciation for Our Clients
Our annual Apex Client Calendar is one of the many ways we show our appreciation for our clients. We like to frame 13 chrome and steel beauties and showcase them as shining examples of pride and joy. This year’s contest to select the baker’s dozen trucks and pick a cover winner began July 16 with photo submissions through Aug. 7. From Aug. 10-14, our fellow Apexers voted to select the Top 13, and from Aug. 20-31 public votes determined the cover-winning truck.
Over in Raceland, Louisiana, Cortez is feeling gratitude for the opportunity to share his cover-winning 2004 Peterbilt 379 with fellow Apex clients. “Everyone takes a lot of pride in their trucks,” he says, “and it’s an honor to be chosen for the calendar much less to be chosen for the cover. It’s very exciting and doesn’t seem real just yet.”
