XDP is the Exclusive DVD distributor; supplies are limited!
The Diesel Power Challenge 2011 DVD, presented by XDP is the industrys premiere diesel test, used to find out who has the ultimate street-legal, diesel-powered machine.
Diesel Power Magazine invited readers from all over the country to submit their modified machines to compete in a three-day diesel-powered torture test known as the Diesel Power Challenge (DPC). From the hundreds of entries they received, they selected three Fords, four Dodges, and four GMs, and instructed them to descend on Denver, Colorado on May 3, 4, and 5, 2011.
Unlike other diesel motorsports, the Diesel Power Challenge is as much a science lab as it is a competition. Our goal is to find the reader with the most versatile diesel-powered truck, and because of that we have very few rules. The rules we do have are simply intended to keep this a competition of real trucks.
Separating the Dyno Queens, From the Dyno King
We'll begin by stress-testing all 10 competitors on a chassis dyno to benchmark each vehicle's potential. By the end of Day One we'll know how much torque each competitor has on tap, who the super powers are, and who's brought a knife to a gunfight.
On Day Two, we'll take the trucks to the drag strip to see which truck is the quickest. We expect we could see the first 09-second pass in Diesel Power Challenge history. Then we'll hitch each truck up to a 10,000-pound trailer and give each truck a chance to haul down the eight-mile. We'll finish the day with an all-new-for-2011 Trailer Maneuvering test that will keep our competitors on their toes.
Day Three of the DPC will begin at dawn. We'll fuel-up each truck, weigh them, and head out on a 150-mile road trip through the mountains of Colorado to test their durability and fuel economy.
All of the trucks that are still running will then hook up to a 30,000-pound sled to see who can tug it the farthest.
New for 2011: Trailer Tow Obstacle Course
This year we are introducing a trailer-towing obstacle course test that will be conducted at Bandimere Speedway. Each competitor must perform the obstacle course test to show his or her driving skill. This timed test will involve hooking your truck up to a trailer, driving through a coned-off course, and then backing the trailer into a designated parking 2 spot. The driver who completes the course in the least amount of time, will be the winner of this event. There will be a time penalty for each cone hit.
The competitor that scores the most points form all seven events will then be crowned the winner of Diesel Power Challenge 2011!
