This past weekend XDP headed to Tulsa Raceway Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the 2nd annual Tulsa Diesel Nationals. This was a 1 day event offering drag racing, sled pulls, dyno runs, show & shine, and a burnout contest. Tulsa had seen heavy rains that past few days making the parking lot and sled pull track a muddy mess. Thankfully the track crew was able to work on it all day and get the track ready for that evenings sled pull event. It was a beautiful spring day with temps in the mid 70s, little too no wind, and nothing but sunshine. Perfect conditions for racing action.
The big news of the day for XDP came from Anthony Reams and the XDP truck. In his first true run with the new common rail set up, he posted a 9.14et at 153 mph! This would have been a new Super Street world record if he had been able to back it up within 1% on his next run. Unfortunately on his next run he ran a 9.34et and was not able to secure the record. The truck still has some fine tuning before it is dialed in just right. Hopefully, when it’s fully dialed we’ll see it dip into the 8’s!
