The first-ever Super Stock diesel drag race saw Aron Nick taking $25,000 back home to White, Georgia. Coming into the finals, Aron and Matt Handwork had run within 0.05 second of each other, so the finals was set to be an awesome race. Unfortunately, Matt’s truck pushed through the brakes, causing him to redlight and give the instant win to Aron.

Even after the redlight start, both drivers stayed in it, with Aron’s 11.03 seconds at 122 mph still beating out Matt’s 11.13 seconds at 125 mph. Aron combined excellent reaction times (he cut a 0.02- second light in the second round), consistent 1.60-second 60-foot times, and pure horsepower to take the victory. Aron even went as far as taking the hood, grille, and other excess weight off his truck for the final round to get as close to 6,000 pounds as possibleand it seemed to work, as he was two tenths of a second quicker than his qualifying time. We congratulate Aron Nick on his victory and look forward to seeing him at future events.
