Ok this was in the process last few months over on the army. Trying to make a Annual Powerstroke Event. Ford approached me few months ago making an event for powerstroke trucks but it was also have mustang show as well. I told them trucks won't show up just for a car show, after a few meetings we have discussed a Show n Shine, Vendors, and a diesel dyno. I got the official we are cleared to do it. Some meetings with the EPA/DEQ office which was located directly behind them approved the dyno for diesel. The Date set is May 11th a Saturday.

These will be a few vendors I will be contacting to sponsor the event

Spartan Diesel Tech
Rudy's Diesel
Maryland Performance Diesel
Quick Trick Automotive
Innovative Diesel

Hopefully I can get a vendor out here for tuning for folks now that doesn't me dyno tuning, more towards if you would like a tune a vendor and write you one on the spot you go for a drive and make adjustments etc. The dyno will be separate it will tie up the dyno doing this. Also working making this an annual diesel event for Virginia if the first year turns out great it will expand, will Old dominion speedway go we don't have a track up here. So please this is important event since I will be getting vendors out and I believe the mobile dyno if he can will be coming from Wy, so for dyno rev your gonna have to secure your spot for it to make it worth his drive out. Get the word out to your local guys as well. I will keep everyone up to date as I keep attending meetings.

Sounds awesome. I'm pumped for this! I will definitely show up but not sure about dyno run. With the vendors such as Vivian you were saying there will be the option of a sort of live tuning kinda deal? Should be a good selling point, people can get some new/different tunes.

from the what i have been told and understood there probably won't be live tuning but they will be offering there tunes and i think with option you can take a ride up the road and see how you like it and can tell them and they can make adjustments if needed but be hard to make time to live tune. i could be wrong there might be an option to reserve some time with them ahead of time but not that i know of yet.

Haven't gotten a chance to discuss the ins and outs with vivian yet. Depending how it goes and time wise see what she wants to do, and the dyno about running friday night and sunday morning with approval from Ford of course. If the dyno operator is cool with it, and everyone else with the game plan maybe. No promises yet its up to them. Ford doesn't hurry up I'm gonna have to pay for the dyno to secure it.

Just found out its mothers day weekend. How much of a turn away is that for people ? I've talked to Vivian about tuning friday and saturday that way if ppl need to home late saturday afternoon or evening so we can keep the event. If folks still plan to come ill secure the dyno for those days just don't want to waste trips for folks so I'm asking ahead of time, might try and reschedule but its up to Ford dealer on that part.

Hey guys, sorry to get off topic. I'm trying to see if any of you would be interested in a small local GTG at Quaker Steak here in Fredericksburg after the 23rd? One day during the weekend of Jan 25th-27th, so next weekend. JLoveF350 missed our Yorktown meet due to being out of the country and wants to have a little local meet. So if any NOVA guys are interested, lets see if we can welcome him back into the states right. Just a few hours of shooting the sh!t and a couple of drinks.

Mother's day weekend is fine with me my lives in Denver so I won't be seeing her unfortunately. I'm thinking about going up Friday and getting a hotel, I don't want to miss out on the excitement of the dyno if its gonna be running.
