Diesel World - - Contents - BY JA­SON SANDS

Every year the Ul­ti­mate Call­out Chal­lenge has been get­ting big­ger and big­ger, and the com­pe­ti­tion has got­ten fiercer. The event has got­ten so large, in fact, that the UCC or­ga­niz­ers have al­ready opened up qual­i­fy­ing for next year. These 25 lucky en­trants would be com­pet­ing against each other for a spot in UCC 2019 and a chance to join the big show.

The for­mat for the Qual­i­fiers would be the same as the Ul­ti­mate Call­out Chal­lenge it­self. Com­peti­tors would drag race, dyno and sled pull, and the truck with the high­est over­all score in all three events would be crowned the Qual­i­fier cham­pion. What the Qual­i­fier race did was give lit­tle-known shops or pri­va­teers a chance to com­pete against the big dogs, all the while get­ting a taste of what UCC com­pe­ti­tion is like. These rac­ers weren’t nec­es­sar­ily green­horns, how­ever, as ru­mors of trucks run­ning 9s and mak­ing well over 1,500 rear-wheel horse­power on the dyno were fly­ing long be­fore the event started. Who would come out on top? Who would give you a spot in next year’s field? We’ll give you a run­down.
