Pre­sented by XDP

IF THERE’S any­one who thinks Diesel Power Chal­lenge Pre­sented by XDP isn’t one of the great­est diesel com­pe­ti­tions on the planet, we re­spect­fully and, of course, self­ishly beg to dif­fer. Once again, the 14th edi­tion of our an­nual truck throw down was noth­ing short of awe­some, with nine reader-se­lected rigs and drivers con­verg­ing on Den­ver, Colorado, in June 2018, to bat­tle each other in six gru­el­ing tests of man and ma­chine.

DPC is typ­i­cally con­tested by 10 par­tic­i­pants. And yes, a full lineup of three Dodge, three Ford, and four GM rigs was orig­i­nally set to com­pete. How­ever, sim­i­lar to the 2017 event, the ros­ter was jux­ta­posed slightly by the last-minute with­drawal

of two com­peti­tors (Trevor Ruf­f­corn/Dodge and Vinny Ho­bart/Ford) right be­fore reg­is­tra­tion opened.

The ab­sences opened the door for Gar­rett Osen’s place­ment into the lineup, bring­ing the to­tal num­ber of com­peti­tors to nine. Gar­rett was DPC 2018’s of­fi­cial Al­ter­nate, and he is the fourth con­sec­u­tive sub­sti­tute player to ac­tu­ally make it into the Chal­lenge.

“DPC Week” was an in­tense five days of awe­some com­pe­ti­tion, co­op­er­a­tion, and sports­man­ship. We here at Diesel Power truly be­lieve that from start to fin­ish (re­ceiv­ing en­tries, vot­ing, an­nounc­ing com­peti­tors’ names, and the crown­ing of Kody Pulliam as cham­pion) this was the best DPC in the event’s his­tory.

The fol­low­ing pages con­tain pho­tos and in­for­ma­tion cov­er­ing the high­lights and scor­ing for Diesel Power Chal­lenge 2018 Pre­sented by XDP.
