Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Video Week: Killing Cones on Day Four

Hitched to the Trailer Yet Again for a Test of Skill and Talent

Oct 10, 2018
Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Presented by XDP was an exciting and comprehensive test of driver skill, truck strength, and teamwork. And if you were wondering what this year’s event was like beyond the glossy pages of the magazine or the coverage on the Truck Trend Network website, you’re in luck, because Diesel Power Challenge 2018 Video Week continues on the Motor Trend Channel on YouTube and on Motor Trend On Demand.
Diesel Power Challenge's fourth event is the incredibly challenging Trailer-Tow Cone Course, wherein we turn to our 10,500-pound trailer/Bobcat combo and put truck and driver through a test of precision and skill. Our cone course included tight turns, bumper boxes, and a very long reverse chute that resulted in quite a few downed cones, with each one adding 10 seconds to the total time. Some of our friends at the Colorado Highway Patrol showed up out of curiosity, but we wouldn't let them off the hook without taking one of their vehicles through the obstacle course hitched to the trailer. How'd our officer friends (and DPC competitors) do? Watch the video above to find out!
