Report from LA Second Day of meetings!

Sorry for the delay, busy with meetings during the week but here is a recap of the second day of meetings. I will report on the third day on Monday. SEMA MPMC conference is held in LA is where you go from room to room every 30 minutes to discuss what is new products from the manufacturers for motorsports.

Second day I met with Cherrybomb which does not have diesel kits and Specialty Auto Parts/Profab which also does not have diesel parts but was interested in making some in the near future. Auto Meter had some great gauges for our diesels  with some new gauges for the Duramax that will match OEM colors! Weld Racing Wheels had their new 8 Lug custom wheel line with matching trailer wheels displayed, these new styles look great and are made in the USA!

Gibson had some killer tips in 5", 6" and 8" done with Metalucia logo bolted on to the black tip, our younger guys will like this. Borgeson Universal now has the complete steering kit for the Dodge including pump and hose upgrades all made in the US. Hawk Performance did not have any thing for the diesels other than a stock wheel, but Mickey Thompson had a killer wheel that looks like a big rig wheel that you can add different lug bolts for different preferences but yet it still bolts on as a 8 Lug wheel and the Center cap covers the 8 lug bolts! What a hoot for those looking for something different.

Gear Vendors offers their Overdrive unit for any of the diesels and has been used by drag racers and some pullers. Maradyne Performance had fans for 34" radiators but as most of you know diesels are smaller than that dimension. Nitrous Express had their usual line of kits for the diesels.

Our sponsors were there including Champion Oil with the new line of Performance Oil for non-DPF diesels, by adding the additives back into the oil it's a must for the older diesel trucks. CP-Carrillo was there with their great heavy duty connecting rods with applications for all of our diesel trucks.

Diesel Motorsports are proud of our sponsors who attend these conferences because they help us spread the word about our sport along with introducing myself to many new manufacturers. Every year this conference gets better because the companies all want to know more about DIESEL Motorsports!
