out a 713hp run in the Ford class and Justin Archibald had his Small Twin Common Rail Cummins fine-tuned to the sound of 1,063 hp as one of only a few to crack into the four-digit range on the day.
Mother Nature brought some beautiful weather for the event, and the cool mountain air and lush green hillsides made for an amazing evening around the dirt sled pull track. The stands were packed and everyone was smiling as some of the strongest running diesel trucks of the region tried to plant that horsepower to the extremely short 250-foot track. The United sled had to transfer the weight quick and hard to be sure to shut these trucks down in time; at night’s end, Shawn Baca’s famous 2,500hp Master Shredder made the longest pull of the evening at 242 feet. With the help of Edge Products, the Morgan event was a major success for the United Pullers team and you can expect to see more action-packed events along their 2017 circuit.
Master Shredder, owned and piloted by Shawn Baca, the lead engine builder at Industrial Injection, has made quite the name for itself over the past couple seasons. As a competitor at the Ultimate Callout Challenge, it laid down over 2,500 hp. This truck has also made a few passes in the mid-9s at the track and dominated the sled pull thanks to those cut pulling tires, placing first in the Pro Mod Diesel class.
No, it’s not a diesel, but who doesn’t love seeing big-block Chevy, running straight alcohol, with a massive blower sticking out of the hood, carrying both front wheels 5 feet in the air all the way down a dirt track? The old Chevy, Cheap Shot Reloaded, is owned and driven by Skyler Neibaur of Rigby, Idaho.
Bryant Evans from Tremonton, Utah, had his 6.7L Cummins on the dyno earlier in the day where he made 590 hp in the Small Single class. Out on the pull track the black Dodge ran 163.1 feet before getting stopped by the big sled.
