ATS Gauntlet Challenge
Thanks to its $500 buy-in, winner-take-all conditions, ATS Diesel’s Gauntlet Challenge has become a fairly captivating event in recent years. Each competitor gets 30 minutes on the dyno— going beyond the limit results in a Dq—and the scene’s top dogs see who can roll away with the most horsepower and torque. The 20-truck cap is quickly met, the rules are simple, and the trucks that show up are downright fierce. For the 2018 event, UCC competitor Randy Reyes and his 9-second dually would set the unbeatable mark at 1,603 hp and 2,004 lb-ft of torque.*
*Progressively worse dyno issues meant all numbers were down significantly. However, this did not affect event winner results.
