Ozark Diesel Shootout Results 2015 . . .

DIESEL Motorsports is always trying to expand into new markets where there are diesel trucks who want to compete against other trucks. That is why we have expanded into Nebraska earlier this year and now Rogersville Missouri this last Saturday. The Ozark Raceway has held a diesel class every month as a DM series because the local shops have asked them to create a series. DIESEL Motorsports is trying to get them to establish a monthly presence there with trucks.
It was a hot one for sure down near Springfield this last weekend but enthusiasts came out anyway to watch the trucks compete. Next year they are looking to add sled pulling to the facility which would make the events even larger.
DIESEL Motorsports wants to thank all competitors and fans who braved the heat (107º) on Saturday for a fun time in the sun. It was nice to put faces with names and meeting many new diesel enthusiasts with great trucks. The winners are listed below:

Power on the Mountain! East Coast Diesel Nationals 2015. . .

2015 is the 6th year this event has been held at Numidia Dragway and it gets bigger every year. The Diesel Lifestyle family event brings in all ages to watch diesel truck drag racing, pulling, dyno competition and Show-N-Shine. 

It's the only location where we run sled pulling at the same time drag racing is being held right next to each other, it gives the fans double entertainment to watch. Many of the vendors offer show special pricing on diesel parts sought by the truck owners who attend the show. The track owner loves kids and even brings in a bounce house for them along with a huge playground. 


This year DIESEL Motorsports had over 280 trucks competing and over 4500 fans watching the activities. It was a full day starting at 8am and ending about 8pm, the staff of DIESEL Motorsports works very hard to make sure every one has a great time while at the event.






To start the day out we were a bit concerned because heavy rain, thunder and lightning hit the town of Bloomsburg where we were staying but by the time we got to the track on top of the mountain the sky was clearing and it had barely rained at the track. That is the way this track sits between two mountain ranges and seems to miss most storms, that is until 8pm that night minutes after the last Workstock truck pulled down the track the storms came in hard and drenched the area.

During the day it was beautiful sunny weather all day long with long lines at the concessions wanting water, Italian Ice and fountain drinks. Being on top of the mountain there is always a breeze blowing across the track with little humidity. It is a pleasure being in the mountains after holding events down on the plains in the heat.


As always we saw many street trucks line up in the staging lanes for drag racing with many new trucks wanting to win the cash purses available right after the races. DIESEL Motorsports did see some fast trucks with the Unlimited class trucks running in the low 9s in the 1/4 mile. The Mass Diesel dyno competition all saw some high horsepower trucks over 1100 hp coming from all three truck brands.


Sled pulling always has some of the strongest trucks on the East Coast pulling for the cash purses paying 10 places back. This year a diesel tractor class was added, the Modified Turbo tractors was a crowd pleaser with many big names running down the track. The 2.5 class gets stronger every year with some trucks getting close to 1000 hp.

It was a day for many to remember including the Mothers Show-N-Shine trucks with Doug Brarens taking home the best of show with his hauler "Rustenstein"!

Already planning next year's event at Numidia with some new additions to the show that includes some new diesel exhibitions. It is one of DIESEL Motorsports favorite venues to come to every year.
