Yearly recap 2011 . . . DIESEL Motorsports!

Normally this time of the year we all slow down for the Holidays and enjoy the time with families, friends and people we know in the industry. A perfect time to think about what we have done this past year and what we have accomplished.



For DIESEL Motorsports we started the year with a storm/tornado at the first event but still got in some great drag racing and pulling back in Indiana. Followed by a great turnout in Hebron OH at the National Trails Dragway with some very nice high powered trucks.

We saw an old event relived at Thunder in Muncie where the DIESEL Only events started ten years ago, we had the original promoters and organizers present to watch a good size crowd watch some of Indiana's best pulling trucks compete with some original attendees including Haisley, Wright, and Smith.

It was a pleasant return to the top of the mountain in Numidia PA at the East Coast Nationals where hundreds of trucks competed in front of one of the largest DIESEL Only events in the country. This was a retail/wholesale show where many different vendors under one tent sell products to diesel truck enthusiasts.

It was then off to Salt Lake City for Weekend on the Edge where we sanctioned the drag race with 94 trucks competing in front of 4,000 people. The next night after the daytime dyno event at Edge we sanctioned the sled pull with over 70 trucks entertained 3,000 people in the Pioneer Stadium stands.

Back across the country to National Trails Dragway for the second Buckeye Diesel Blast in September, we had a blast alright with DIESEL only drag racing and sled pulling performing at the same time. We held the first Cow Patty Bingo raising funds for Homes for the Troops using a local baby bull!

Down South to Texas to the ODRA/DIESEL Motorsports Texas Diesel Roundup at the Denton track for DIESEL ONLY drag racing, sled pulling, dyno and shownshine. Great turnout with lots of vendors enjoyed a nice crowd of diesel enthusiasts.

Ended up in Orlando Florida at the PRI show with a drag race at Central Florida Race Complex where not only did we see some fast diesels but also had fun with a rental car race. The sponsors saw some good trucks running down the track and enjoyed some BBQ while they watched the trucks run.

Overall we saw good crowds at all of the events and we saw many new trucks at the events along with some new records being broken.

Yes, DIESEL Motorsports is growing and we are soon going to see more of it as it goes mainstream!
