2014 XDP Jersey Devil Diesel Nationals

This past weekend marked the 3rd Annual XDP Jersey Devil Diesel Nationals at Atco Raceway, in Atco NJ. The morning started off slowly due to lingering rain in the area but towards the middle of the day the sun came out and the heat was on. The crowd was increasing in size and our local fans that came to race were ready to hit the track!

Once started, it was a full day of drag racing with many trucks in attendance. From stock to highly modified, everyone had a great day while trying to put down their best time and beat the truck in the opposing lane. On the other side of the grand stands, the attention was on the dyno where trucks were strapped down and run to see what kind of horsepower and torque numbers they could lay down.

The XDP Drag Truck was on-site, not only to be displayed for its first NJ appearance but also for some testing as well. The crew took to the track and made several 10-second passes in an attempt to dip into the 9’s. With some fresh upgrades the truck ran well but ultimately the Crew was still chasing down a few minor things. They feel they’ll have them figured out and will get the truck dialed in to get down the track faster at the next event. 

Our friends at Atco Raceway left a few cars out on the grass for the XDP Diesel Monster Truck to feast on. So, in between rounds of drag racing the XDP Monster Truck had its time to shine by destroying some fresh cars for the many in attendance. With only a small space to roam our very own Dave Radzierez put the pedal down to hit those cars and get some air underneath the Monster Truck.

All in all, it was a great day and a fun time for the XDP crew and the enthusiasts in attendance! We’d like to thank all of our Fans that came out to support the event along with Atco Raceway and the XDP Race Team for putting on a great show!

Come and join us at our next event on September 13th & 14th for the U.S. Diesel Truckin’ Nationals & XDP Open House. You will not want to miss it!

XDP Drag Race Team makes final round at NHRDA Rockingham!

XDP Drag Team in finals at Rockingham

The XDP Drag Race Team took to the track this weekend in Rockingham, NC for the NHRDA Carolina Diesel Nationals at THE ROCK!!  The team was looking to really open the truck up for the first time down the quarter mile drag strip in Rockingham.  As with any new race truck, we have fought little issues since debuting the truck earlier this season and continued to work through them this weekend in NC. 

 Saturday we went out and qualified #2 with a 10.07 @ 138 mph with some tractions issues causing the truck to move towards the wall and center line for a few hundred feet.  With another nitrous issue fixed after that pass and seeing what we had run previously, we were VERY optimistic about getting the truck into the 9’s and 140 mph range for the next round.

 With the truck now at full strength I lined up against Dan Hair who had qualified .01 seconds behind me! Both of us were very excited to have a close race and we didn’t let the spectators down!!  With a 10.21 at 125 mph, the XDP truck was able to move onto the finals on a victory that was decided at the starting line, as Dan went 10.15 to the stripe.  We’d won it at the tree, but during the pass the XDP truck broke the #1 injector line and blew off and severely bent an intercooler pipe. So we had raced our way into the finals but were now scrambling to prepare for the finals against a very fast Micah Sullivan and the Scheid team. The XDP team thrashed to get the truck ready for the final round in hopes it would hold together for one more pass!  The win, however, just wasn’t in the cards for the day, as we cut a .058 light to give us a great advantage again off the starting line, only to have the intercooler pipe explode soon after.

 We had a GREAT time in Rockingham and look forward to the next event to get that 9 second pass we have been looking for!

27th Annual 4-Wheel Jamboree Bloomsburg, PA

blooms1

The XDP Crew was once again in Bloomsburg, PA for the 27th Annual 4-wheel Jamboree. With us was the XDP Diesel Powered Monster Truck driven by Dave Radzierez, the XDP Diesel Rat Rod driven by Frank Mohr, and the XDP Diesel Drag Truck driven by Anthony Reams! The event draws not only diesel fans but off-road enthusiasts of all kinds. This 3-day event brought with it some humid weather but made for fantastic track conditions during the dirt-drags and mud-bog events. Jamboree events are always action-packed and filled with opportunities for fans to meet with manufacturers, vendors, distributors, monster truck drivers, and the like. Attendees were given a great opportunity to capitalize on show specials for parts and merchandise!

Both Saturday and Sunday were incredibly eventful with dirt drags and mud-bog runs being held throughout day. Later in the afternoon and evening the fan-favorite monster truck racing and freestyle events took place. Unfortunately, Saturday the XDP monster truck managed to break a pushrod and could not finish out the rest of the night. It was safe to say that Dave could not go through with the highly-anticipated 3-for-3 back-flip attempt on Sunday, which was disappointing. Overall, the event lived up to its reputation as being a great show, with the weather being good, the racing top-notch, and the monster trucks being as exciting as always. Everyone including XDP had a blast!

Thanks to all who attended and stopped by the XDP booth and we look forward to seeing you all in Indy for the next back-flip attempt!

East Coast Diesel Nationals

20140719_085846

The XDP crew headed to the East Coast Diesel Nationals at Numidia Dragway hosted by the National Association of Diesel Motorsports (NADM) this past Saturday.  The quiet rural Pennsylvania morning rapidly transformed as upwards of 4,000 racers and spectators arrived for an all-out diesel packed day of racing and good quality fun.  The events held included drag racing, sled pulling, dyno competition and a show and shine.

Racing began around 10:30 and continued throughout the day as spectators divided their time between the grandstand and vendor alley checking out show specials and new products.  The  XDP booth featured many show specials, product displays, and two XDP show vehicles featuring the XDP diesel Rat Rod driven by Frank Mohr and our SEMA Show LMM Duramax.  Around 3:00 pm the sled pulls began, starting with the workstock class and finishing with the extreme 3.0 class.

Overall, we at XDP had a great day and enjoyed seeing old faces and meeting new ones.  We hope to see everyone again at the next show which will be at Rockingham Dragway in NC for the 2014 NHRDA Carolina Diesel Nationals.XDP would also like to thank the National Association of Diesel Motorsports for putting on such a great show.  You can keep up to date on where XDP will be next, via our Facebook page.

Bullydog Dog Days

10386979_10152224887268450_2376667592236495467_o

XDP joined Bullydog this past weekend for the 11th annual Bullydog Dog Days diesel event at Bannock County Fairgrounds in Pocatello Idaho. The event included a dyno competition, dirt drags, sled pulls, and a freestyle motorcross show. The event started at 8am with a dyno competition that ran most of the day until about 4 pm. The majority of the trucks on the dyno were Duramaxes with some Cummins and Powerstrokes mixed in.  The winner of the dyno competition was an 1800hp regular cab short bed Duramax owned by Custom Auto. Around 6pm is when people started to flood through the gates to watch the sled pulls and dirt drags. Sled pulls started around 6:30pm with multiple classes competing. The dirt drags are what got everyone really excited. Using a 400 ft drag strip on the same dirt used for the sleds pulls, it was awesome to see the trucks fly by you on the dirt from only a couple feet away. It was a great event with several thousand people coming to watch. We can’t wait to join them next year for this excellent annual event.

17th Annual Ozark 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals

DAVE RADZIEREZ DID IT AGAIN!

10382156_10150420715854975_1555536232669191719_n

Another successful backflip attempt that was executed with near perfection.

Over the past weekend XDP and its Race Team had a chance to attend the 2014 Springfield Missouri 4-Wheel Jamboree in Springfield, MO.  Thick, hot humid air filled the area but that did not stop people from coming out and showing their support for their favorite monster truck or local mud truck.  Events for the weekend included monster truck races, freestyle competition, mud bog challenge, a burnout contest and many others.  However, the talk of the town was focused on Dave in the XDP monster truck and his second backflip attempt.  His last (in Lima, OH) was a crowd favorite and he was determined to land it again in Springfield, MO.  All weekend leading up to the final event the crowd was bustling with talk of the attempt, was he going to land it? or come up short and wreck?  Everyone was on edge leading up to the main event.  Finally when the time came Dave started the truck, casually hit some small jumps, eyed up the jump for the backflip and went for it.  Watching a six ton truck twirl in the air and successfully land back on all four tires is something out of this world.  Once he successfully landed the crowd went insane, he was an instant crowd favorite.  The cheering could be heard from miles away!

Now that Dave is currently 2/2 with his backflip attempts, do you think he can make it 3/3 at the next event?

XDP would like to give a special thanks to Don at Daystar and PK with Edge/Superchips for all their help and support.

We at XDP hope everyone had as much fun at the show as we did, and we look forward to seeing everyone soon.

NHRDA Indiana Diesel Shootout

IMAG2522

Round 6 of the NHRDA season sent XDP to Indianapolis Indiana for the annual Indiana Diesel Shootout. Friday nights event took place at the Marion County Fairgrounds for the diesel sled pulls.

Saturdays event took place at famous Lucas Oil Raceway for drag racing, dyno competition, and burnout contest. Jarrod Jones and the Scheid dragster set the quickest and fastest run in NHRDA history. Jarrod ran 6.37 seconds at 225.3 mph. Ryan Milliken and the Dirtymax remained unbeaten this year in the Pro Stock class running 9.65 seconds and 120mph. In XDP news Anthony and our XDP racing truck ran for the first time at the event and improved from 14 seconds on the first run down to 11 seconds in his last run. Anthony and XDP will continue throughout the season to improve and hopefully become one of the top trucks in the NHRDA circuit.

The next event on the NHRDA schedule is the Pacific Coast Diesel Nationals on June 28th in Woodburn, Oregon at Woodburn Dragstrip.
