Its Class 8 retail sales rose 19%, Rush said. Aftermarket services accounted for more than 62% of the company’s profit, while parts, service and body shop revenues rose 22%.

Rush delivered 2,813 new heavy-duty trucks, up from 2,363 a year ago, 2,141 new medium-duty trucks, up from 1,514, 343 light-duty trucks, up from 314, and 1,242 used trucks, up from 1,156.
