This past weekend, XDP set up at the 4-Wheel Jamboree, which took place in Lima, Ohio, for three days of mud slingin’, tire rippin’, suspension pummeling excitement. Except for a few brief periods of light rain on Saturday, the conditions in Lima were the best in years. That led to 3 full days of great 4-wheeling action that left the weekend’s crowd roaring after each day of racing.
For all you fellow diesel enthusiasts who were at the Lima Jamboree, you already know the highlight of XDP’s weekend in Lima. On Saturday, the biggest day of the event with the stands packed, Dave Radzierez driver of the XDP Cummins powered Monster Truck BEAT Big Foot driven by the very talented Dan Runte! Yes that Big Foot!
Last season was the first for the new XDP chassis and all year Dave and Michelle who run the team worked long and hard at getting this truck dialed in. To see the progress in speed, power, and reliability early in the 2013 season is exciting. We’ve got a couple more highly technical issues to sort, but they will get it and we’ll roll coal over the competition again soon I’m sure!
As for the rest of the event, the 4-Wheel Jamboree was a great time with many classes of entertaining racing taking place, along with plenty of great food, cold drinks, and socializing in between. XDP offered up a huge list of performance part show specials that many took advantage of as well. Also, a big thanks to Rick from MBRP who was our neighbor all weekend and helped answer many exhaust related technical questions for those stopping by the exhibits.
If you missed Lima this year, try not to beat yourself up and instead check out XDP’s event calendar and plan a trip to come experience it yourself at the next XDP event in your area.
Our next 4 Wheel Jamboree with the XDP Monster Truck is June 22-23 in Springfield MO at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds. We hope to see many of our friends and supporters there!
