Diesels In The Desert 2009 - Duel In The Desert
The NHRDA Kicks Off Its Season In Arizona
The NHRDA hosted its second annual Diesels in the Desert on March 9th of this year, and boy did some interesting vehicles show up. There were tube-chassis vehicles, two-wheel-drive drag trucks, and even some street-tire trucks running 10-second quarter-mile elapsed times. The classes were Sportsman E.T. (a bracket class where anyone could enter) Super Street (a class that had weight and tire requirements) Pro Street (a more race-oriented category for two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive trucks with slicks) and Pro Stock Diesel and Top Diesel, where the rules were basically unlimited. In addition to the racing, there was also a manufacturers' midway, where the fans could check out the newest diesel products, and a chassis dyno, where diesel enthusiasts could measure their vehicles' horsepower. Enjoy the event coverage and mark your calendars for next year's race--this is a West Coast event you won't want to miss.
