Texas Diesel Shootout September 4th

Diesel Innovations, Hellmann Performance, HotRodDiesels is sponsoring a race at Houston Raceway Park/Baytown this Friday night. For those newbie's we usually do this the 1st Friday of every month.
We will match up the 2 quickest/fastest to a winner takes all race. If we have enough participants we will have an eliminations style race. Red lights count. Heads up, no breakout, run what ya brung, and hope you brung enough.
The final race will be about 9-10pm. Get there early so you can get some runs in. The entries into the "Trophy" race will be based on timeslips from THAT day/night.
The rules are: The truck has to be a licensed and inspected streetable diesel truck. No trailer queens, they have to race MDW.
We've had some great winners since we've started this. For awhile it was a Cummins but the last few months it's been a Duramax. Where are the Fords?? Who's going to take the win this month? Cummins, Duramax, Ford??
Even if you're not racing, it's still a good time talking trucks and listening to the 3 shop owners talking trash with each other...
See you at the track,
Michael Watkins
Joe Hellmann
David Lott


Bring one of these

and try to win one of these.

What a night. Some good races were had that is for sure.

Here is the finals race between a DMAX and Cummins. The Cummins won (barely) with a 10.86 to the DMAX's 11.3 (I believe. It was pretty close)

I have to say this was the most interesting run of the night. Red FoxBody Stang let out at the 1000' mark and hit the brakes hard to run this time.




Also, Justin and Dakotah, it was a pleasure meeting you guys. Hopefully we can turn this into a monthly Houston area LSP gathering.
