Use your levels control to lighten it up, or use auto levels. That will help. Then use a hefty dose of shadow recovery to get some detail on the trucks. Then I would give it a few points of saturation boost and the same with contrast boost. You won't be able to overcome the backlit nature of the shot, but you can give it more snap. This shot should be accepted due to its rarity, but I think you can make it a bit better. I've overdone it a bit to show what can be done, but by taking it a bit easier, you can avoid the tinted photo look that I got.
