I saw it. It was pretty cool The Ford seemed to get the showcase the most. The driver new what he was doing.
I was suprised to see the Ford keep up so well with the Duramax on the drag race. The burnout was awesome from the Ford.

The best test they did was the truck runaway ramp. Unfortunately Ford lost. I don't know why.

It was dopey to pull on a telephone pole and pull down a house. I would like to have seen how the other trucks would do pulling the train. Somehow I think the Cummins would have done very well. I am a Ford guy though.
