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.
