Which of These Competitors Will Win the 2018 Diesel Power Challenge?

Once again, the 2018 Diesel Power Challenge is upon us with 10 competitors and 1 alternate gearing up for another battle of the diesel-fittest. Last year’s champion, Charlie Keeter, exhausted his term-limited reign of two years. Sadly, “Three-Peater Keeter” will never be a thing due to Diesel Power Challenge rules. However, a fresh crop of competitors awaits its chance to take the throne, and excitement is mounting to see who it’ll be.

We have a Winner!!

I wanted to post this story although it’s late but the winner is Kody Pulliam!! Scroll through the trucks below to see his entry.

  • Obstacle course
  • Quarter-mile trailer tow
  • Dyno pulls

The age-old battle between Chevy, Ford and Dodge builds in full force at Diesel Power Challenge, pitting each loyalist against one another to earn bragging rights.

This year will see a first-ever van contender, with AMSOIL Dealer Vinnie Hobart looking to make history in the Ford camp with his ’04 Ford E-350.
