PROFILING THE READER-SELECTED TRUCKS AND DRIVERS OF DIESEL POWER CHALLENGE 2018 PRESENTED BY XDP
Profiling the reader-selected trucks and drivers of Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP
WE RECEIVE hundreds of Diesel Power Challenge entry forms each year from hard-core enthusiasts hoping to join the elite society of trucks and owners selected to compete in our annual test of machine and driver.
While the number of candidates is typically pared down to approximately 45 to 50 rigs (Fords, GMs, and Dodge/Rams) by the Diesel Power staff, deciding exactly who gets in is your assignment, completed through the ballots you cut directly from these pages and submit before deadline, which then get tabulated and verified by an independent auditor over a 90-day period.
When it was all said and done, 10 competitors were announced for Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP in an exciting Facebook Live broadcast from Ultimate Callout Challenge and contacted by Editor KJ Jones, who extended an official invitation to join us in Denver, Colorado.
The following pages contain features highlighting eight of the voted-in competitors and the official alternate for DPC 2018 (feature photography is actually done at the event, which two selected participants unfortunately were forced to withdraw from and were not present for photos). The articles contain interesting details on the trucks, as well as insights from the owners about their “road to Diesel Power Challenge” and thoughts on how they’ll do in the tough competition.
