Official Competitors: Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP

These are your official competitors of Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP. Did your vote make the cut?

May 4, 2018
Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP is upon us! We're returning to the mountains of Colorado for our test of truck strength and speed, driver skill, and mechanical know-how, and after a few months of voting, tallying, and double-tallying, we're ready to announce the good folks who will be coming together in Denver for the event.
These 10 trucks and their drivers will tackle the dyno cell at ATS Diesel Performance, the drag strip and Bandimere Speedway, a home-built trailer tow obstacle course, and the thick dirt of a sled-pull track for top honors. And joining the drivers will be our friends from Amsoil, American Force Wheels, Fury Off-Road Tires, and MyChanic.
You clipped out your ballots and sent them in. Then, they were counted and verified by an independent auditor, who handed them off to Diesel Power Editor KJ Jones, who double-triple-quadruple–checked them for accuracy. Finally, KJ made the official announcement via Facebook Live from the Ultimate Callout Challenge in Indianapolis. So, without further ado, here are your 2018 Diesel Power Challenge competitors!
