What Pulling Classes will be used for 2018??? DIESEL Motorsports

It will be about the numbers for each class as we see more and more trucks drop back to street classes in pulling but there are a lot of powerful trucks. Plus there are still a lot of 2.6 trucks out there with some killer setups for pulling, however we will make a smoothbore class if enough trucks show up for the classes ( min 8 trucks).



Work Stock changed last year to pure OEM turbo for a stock truck pulling for those who want to get started. Same rules as before but with the exception of turbo rule.

Hot Work Stock will be the NEW class with OEM appearing type turbo, however there is a limit being plugged at 2.65! These trucks can make modifications and it needs to be a licensed street truck with DOT tires.

2.5/2.6 smoothbore - Again as we see more trucks make the switch/or not we will split the classes for a more fair pull between the trucks the rules remain the same as last year for both classes.

2.6/3.0 smoothbore - Same as above with the rules remaining the same for both classes. It is different in parts of the country where smoothbore has not come into effect or used as much. We will split the classes as the numbers increase but in many parts last year there were not enough smoothbore for a class. Same rules as 2017 for both classes.

3.0/3.6 smoothbore - Same as above in all aspects - see rulebook for class rules.

Modified - Same rules as 2017, unchanged.

As an association it is our job to make sure there is a class for all trucks who want to pull in all parts of the country. We get asked by many NHRA/IHRA tracks to sanction pulls on their property because we are a sanctioning body with our own ruleset and insurance. Our insurance is at the same level as NHRA events so it covers all liabilities during the the event.

It seems the past economy has kept many from making the changes or other obligations in life has made many keep their trucks the same as before or many being sold. On the bright side, the economy is picking up for many and we see many enthusiasts making the changes either up or down so they can still enjoy the sport of pulling.

DIESEL Motorsports was started over 10 years ago because at the time diesel pickups were not favored by the tractor classes/pullers and many fairs would not let them pull. Still I hear many diesel truck classes are left toward the very end of the late night.

You can count on DIESEL Motorsports for putting the diesel trucks first at every event! No matter what you have on your truck as long as you have the safety equipment on your truck we will find a class for you to compete.

That is why we have so many variables in the classes listed above. For a complete set of rules go to our web site - www.DIESELmotorsports.US! they are free on the left side menu.
