Super Diesel Shootout 2013

Shop Trucks Invade Oklahoma For The First-ever Super Diesel Shootout

A group of fearless diesel enthusiasts showed up on an overcast morning in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for the first-ever Super Diesel Shootout, sponsored by Shell Rotella. The idea of the Super Diesel Shootout included a Shop Truck Challenge that was designed to pit sled pullers against drag racers and street trucks against race trucks, with one overall winner from two days of drag racing, dynoing, and sled pulling.
In addition to the Shop Truck Challenge, there were also separate drag racing and sled pulling classes for those who just wanted to participate in one event. The manual transmission drag racing class was a favorite, as it put stick-shifted trucks against one another in an effort to see who could row gears the quickest. There was also a sled pulling seminar, during which beginners could hook to the sled and get their feet wet in the sport of sled pulling.
After dominating the dyno and dragstrip, Dmitri Millard seemed like a shoe-in, but his drag truck didn’t sled pull very well, as hooking the hitch to the Chevy’s parachute mount resulted in broken parts. That left the door open for Dillon Carter, who had finished right behind Dmitri in the other events. With a strong show in the sled pull, 16-year-old Dillon was the winner. Congratulations to all who were involved, and to Dillon and CNSmoke Diesel Performance on a well-deserved victory.
Winners:

Photo 9/18   |   Yippie Ki-Yea, a hot 2.6 Class truck showed up for an exhibition pull and put nearly 100 feet on the street trucks, with a 439-foot pull.
Photo 16/18   |   After blowing everyone away on the chassis dyno and at the dragstrip, Dmitri Millard was brave enough to hook the sled to his parachute mount. Unfortunately, Dmitiri only made it about 5 feet before the mount broke, which put him in Second Place overall.
