What does the Summer hold for diesel trucks?

The faster trucks are finally taking the ways of gasser NHRA fast vehicles and finding ways to drop weight, lower the truck and use of superior suspensions for stability! It's only natural since for the past 10 years normal diesel trucks have tried to push for faster speeds without much progress, maybe a second or more.

However, in doing so they have reached licensed NHRA limits and now have to follow Pro Stock guidelines which takes them out of the truck category and puts them in the drag vehicle class. These guidelines are sanctioned by SFI which is the same as our sanctioning body and insurance.

Nothing wrong with this approach since it the proper way to go faster but the street trucks still have to follow the licensed class for truck guidelines.



The street trucks buys the parts from our sponsors who keeps the sport alive through their sponsorships. Even sled pulling has gone through a transformation of tractor organizations no longer wanting to tech turbos on trucks so a uniform turbo is introduced. This is fine again which makes the playing field more equal among pullers, however it leaves the street guys out in the cold.

That is why DIESEL Motorsports came up with the Hot Work Stock class and made the original Work Stock Class a pure stock turbo specification. The street trucks is what is going to expand and keep the sport alive!


Street trucks deserve a place to compete and DIESEL Motorsports welcomes all street trucks for racing, pulling and show-n-shine!

See you at the shows in under a month at Haisley Thunder in Muncie June 16/17th!
