TS Performance Outlaw Drags: Battle In Bowling Green

Diesel’s Stiffest Competition Invades Southern Kentucky

Text By , Photography by Diesel Power Staff

We’ve seen a lot of things unfold during the TS Performance Outlaw Drag Race and Sled Pull’s 11-year history. We’ve even witnessed Mother Nature cause a few cancelations in recent years. Still, year after year, it’s evident that nothing can keep diesel enthusiasts from coming to Bowling Green, Kentucky—where the biggest drag race in the industry is held. If we had to guess, it’s the idea of seeing the quickest and most powerful diesel vehicles in existence that draws people from every corner of the country. In the pits, it brings the close-knit diesel drag racing community together. Racers help each other out by sharing tools and parts, shop owners come to see their sponsorship dollars paying off, and spectators show up to watch the best side-by-side diesel racing money can buy.

For 2012, spectator turnout was phenomenal, and the high attendance was rewarded with plenty to do, and lots to see. On Friday, spectators were treated to outlaw drag racing and a huge vendor row at Beech Bend Raceway. Saturday’s festivities entailed two chassis dynos onsite measuring horsepower, the largest show ’n’ shine we’ve ever seen, a bikini contest, and the nighttime sled pull put on by the Pro Pulling League. If this event’s missing anything, it’s that 48 hours of diesel performance isn’t enough! We look forward to seeing you down in the Bluegrass State next May, but until then, here’s a recap of this year’s action.
