Do you think you and your vehicle have what it takes to capture the glory at Diesel Power Challenge? We invite owners from all over the U.S. to enter your modified machines, for a chance to earn a spot and compete in the all-diesel torture test that’s known by most of you simply as “DPC.” Each year, all entries are reviewed by the Diesel Power staff and 10 lucky finalists are selected to participate in the 5-day event, and give it their all to defeat the past-year’s winner (and be crowned Diesel Power Challenge CHAMPION).
