Fifth Place: Derek Belerot RAM/CUMMINS 1,253 hp + 1,956 lb-ft = 3,219 total score
Up just 18 points ahead of Scott Lindsey was Derek Belerot, who brought a Cummins-powered drag truck to the party. Even at first glance Belerot was one to watch, as the twin parachutes on his Dodge hinted at crazy power. Just like Lindsey, Belerot had triple turbos and lots of rpm at his disposal, but his torque number was a bit better, which meant that he was able to nose Lindsey out for fifth place.
Fourth Place: Tyler Kipp RAM/CUMMINS 1,306 HP + 1,928 LB-FT = 3,234 TOTAL SCORE
You might think that Tyler Kipp had brought a knife to a gunfight, as his two-wheel drive was packing a single 88mm turbocharger compared to all these triple-turbo monsters. However, Kipp’s truck was no slouch and had already put down 1,100 hp with its single on a number of occasions. For the Gauntlet Challenge he added two small shots of nitrous to the mix, which bumped his power up to an impressive 1,306 hp and 1,928 lb-ft torque. And then there were three.
