Last DIESEL Motorsports event of the year - in Missouri: Results!

Missouri Truck Shootout II Results:
DIESEL Motorsports normally does not have an event in October because of inclement weather has effected past shows. However we decided to hold a drag race that was a good success in the Spring at a local track in Missouri.
We agreed as long as it was good weather so the people could enjoy the event, no one like to attend and travel to an event when they end up sitting in the truck or hotel room while it rains or worse.
DIESEL Motorsports has always tried to keep in mind the attendees when it comes to weather and cancel in enough time for people to cancel hotels and travel plans before it cost them.
Didn't have to worry about it on the weekend of October 8th in Missouri, it was absolutely beautiful weather and it was even 70ยบ when the gates open.

This was a repeat of the Spring event where it is a Diesel vs Gas drag race at an 1/8th mile track in Osborn Missouri which is just East of Cameron on US 36. It is a nice facility with plenty of parking and lots of fence for our trucks to back up to with their trucks.
Local truck owners must have heard about the Spring race because a lot more high end drag trucks showed up for the diesel and gas classes. We had trucks from a 6 state area including trucks from South Dakota down to Arkansas. 
The heads-up class held the weight limits to 4,000 lb minimum for the trucks and ET Bracket at 3,000 lbs. This was to keep the trucks fairly equal in power and weights in the heads-up classes.
During the evening we saw trucks easily hitting the low 7s and some in the 6s in the 1/8 mile, that is some fast full size trucks for diesel or gas.
The action was serious in all of the classes with some major breakage for those trying to push their trucks. It was very entertaining for the crowd that came to watch.
Dylan Grooms in his 2008 Ford F-250 could not be beat at the lights in both heads-up classes and his best run was 6.55 @ 107mph in the 1/8th mile! Congratulations Dylan!
A big thanks goes out to Mike Franks and his family which own US36 Dragway for providing a great rural venue to watch and enjoy this type of an event. The food is great, admission is cheap, kids 12 and under get in free and there is plenty of room to watch the show.
Another big thanks to Revolution Dyno for providing the dyno competition and participating in the first ever DM travel truck race vs Revolution's tow-pig truck! Yes I lost by 4000ths on the final few feet he passed my truck. Of course I blame my driver, Matt Gilmore of throwing the race lol! Believe me it was the truck, I use this to travel to events and is still running stock injectors, pump etc. I ended up giving Jeremy the shirt off of my back for winning the race!
We had lots of fun and everyone talked late into the night with each other about the wins and losses!
