HORSE­POWER

Diesel World - - Horse Power -

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.
