The previous events at the 2016 Diesel Power Challenge have been tough on every truck, but the final event, the sled pull, might be the toughest. With the remaining trucks ready for the day we made our way to the Adams County Fairgrounds to see who could drag the sled the furthest.
With the oppressive heat from the near triple digit weather, the trucks and drivers were in for a real challenge. As soon as the track was prepped we hooked up the first truck to the sled and the green flag was dropped. With the turbo spooled on our first truck the action we’d been waiting for all day was underway, and it did not disappoint.

Our first competitor David Ferguson leaned on his ’05 Ford F-350 pulling the sled a respectable distance, but he didn’t get off unharmed the truck wouldn’t restart and he had to be helped off the track. The second driver, Nathan Stacy, made an impressive pull with his ’07 Chevy Silverado and drove of the track unharmed. Ray McClelland hooked his truck up the sled, put his foot down and put in a solid pull, but his truck didn’t leave unharmed and left turbo pieces where they don’t belong. Travis Koller pulled the sled with his 2015 Ford without any issues well mast the 200-foot marker. Charlie Keeter took his 6.0L Power Stroke and hooked on to the sled and dragged it down the track without incident. Neal Torley hooked his 6.4L powered Ford up to the sled and managed a top three finish at the sled pull. Kelsie Epp made the final pull with her Duramax powered GMC that was down to seven cylinders thanks to a melted piston from the previous day of drag racing.
