The 2013 TS Performance Outlaw Diesel Drag Race & Sled Pull event was held May 17-18, with the drag racing at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling Champions Tour Presented by Scheid Diesel at Jim Roberts Park in Franklin, Kentucky. Rain threatened to spoil the fun, but some patience on behalf of everyone involved and some scheduling flexibility resulted in another successful event.
