Exclusive one day media access to the Diesel Power Challenge, the most prestigious diesel truck competition of its kind on Wednesday, May 8th, 2013
Background: Diesel Power Magazine, on a mission to find the most powerful diesel truck in the world, accepted applications from hundreds of readers all over the globe to compete in the Diesel Power Challenge competition, taking place May 7th – 9th, 2013 in Morrison, Colorado just outside of Denver. Ten drivers and three teammates each were chosen by readers to pit their modified diesel machines against each other in a three-day test that is described as the "Olympics of diesel trucks.”
At last year’s competition, a Chevy Silverado achieved more than 3,000 lb-ft of torque. That's more power than 4 stock diesel trucks combined.
The Diesel Power Challenge is comprised of seven stages of competition: the chassis dyno, the 1/4-mile drag race, the 1/8-mile 10,000-pound trailer tow, a timed trailer tow obstacle course, the sled pull, and the 150-mile fuel-economy drive. Each event is weighted the same, and each team must compete in all seven stages.
Fans and press will be able to track exciting content from event in real time by visiting DieselPowerChallenge.com and Diesel Power's Facebook page.
