In every championship, there’s always a weigh-in, a qualifying round, or some kind of ceremony. For Diesel Power Challenge—an invitational event that brings the 10 most powerful street-legal trucks together for seven events—we use an entire issue to showcase the competitors. In the following 40 pages, you’ll read about these men and their machines, which gathered in Denver, Colorado, to do battle on the dyno, dragstrip, and dirt for all the world to see.
Many of the names in the following pages will be familiar to you, because for the first time in history, we had our readers pick the Ford, Dodge, and GM trucks that battled it out. From the 30 photos we published in our April ’12 issue, you cast thousands of votes to determine the nine contenders who came to compete against last year’s champion, Rocky Horn.
Who will win this year? Which truck will make the most power? Which transmission will grenade first? How quick will these diesels run? And which teams won’t let failure be an option? Tune in next month for the complete coverage of the Diesel Power Challenge in the October 2012 Issue of Diesel Power Magazine!
