2012 Diesel Events Calendar

In Search of the Next Diesel Mecca

Mike McGlothlinJun 1, 2012
It’s springtime, which means the diesel calendar year is officially in full swing. Our annual events list is back and is once again intended to show a wide array of venues available to all kinds of diesel enthusiasts. From sled pulls and drag races to dyno days and show ’n’ shines to trade shows, open houses, and expositions, we hope you’ll find this list of can’t-miss events helpful in your summer planning.

For 2012, we’ll be trekking all across the map, covering shows from the West Coast to the Northeast—and everything in between. An asterisk next to an event means you’re guaranteed to find a member of the Diesel Power staff on hand. We look forward to seeing you (and your trucks) out and about this year.
