NHRDA Midwest Truckin Nationals

xdptruck

One of the multiple events XDP attended this weekend was the NHRDA Midwest Truckin Nationals. The event was held at the Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison IL, right across the river from St. Louis, MO. Weather conditions were perfect for racing with a high of 80 and partly cloudy skies. This was a local event for Anthony Reams and the XDP drag truck, Anthony lives about an hour west of the track.

The day started off with high hopes, but those were quickly dashed when the race truck was pulled off the trailer and Anthony noticed coolant leaking in between the head and the block, an indication of a bad head gasket. Anthony did what he could to make the truck race ready by re-torquing the head and hoping the gasket would hold. The truck was able to qualify by taking a green light and then going back to the pits to wait for the actual racing to happen. Anthony was able to make one pass with the truck which he won, running 10.24, but unfortunately the motor gave out at the end of the track. Anthony will take the truck home and rebuild the motor to be stronger and more powerful than it was before and the XDP race truck will be back soon, and even faster.

The next NHRDA event will be the Pacific Coast Diesel Nationals taking place July 11th at the Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn, OR.
