The No. 8 most popular Successful Dealer article came in February following news that Rush enterprises set a new record for revenue.

When the company finally closed the books on 2012, Rush – which operates one of the largest networks of commercial vehicle dealerships in North America – reported a net income of $62.5 million on record annual revenues of $3.1 billion.

That was an 11 percent increase in net income over 2011.

The year-end results tempered a tough fourth quarter with gross revenues totaling $732.3 million, a 5.6 percent decrease from gross revenues of $776.1 million reported in 4Q 2011.

Rush has built on that success through much of 2013, posting strong quarterly performances through the year’s first three quarters.
