sdx17

This past weekend XDP headed to Terre Haute Indiana, for the 21st annual Scheid Diesel Extravaganza. We were lucky and had some beautiful weather this year. This event was packed with great show and shine trucks, vendor alley which XDP was a big part of, sled pulls, and drag racing all weekend. Gates opened at 9am on Friday with qualifying sled pulls, test and tune drag racing, and the dyno was running all day. The crowd poured in to get a look at everything the event has to offer.

Saturday’s events consisted of more drag race qualifying and eliminations in the ET class. More sled pulling action with the finals at 6pm. The fair grounds were busy with spectators checking out all the venders as well as watching the dyno running all type of great trucks all day and into the evening. Overall the event was great, with some awesome sled pulls and drag racing.

The XDP crew enjoyed visiting with many customers and friends who stopped by the XDP exhibit to say hi.  A special thank you to AFE, MBRP, Industrial Injection, and many other friends and vendors who supported our efforts at the event and shared time visiting with us during this always popular diesel event.

keystone

This past weekend the XDP crew attended the Keystone Diesel Truck Nationals at Maple Grove raceway in Mohnton, Pa. the gates opened at 6am for diesel enthusiasts, and owners of both big rigs, and pickups to enter the track. The track quickly filled up with show trucks, and trucks also that were drag racing. Racing kicked off at 2pm and the trucks hit the track. During the time trial runs there was an accident where a truck went through the wall. Luckily no one was injured in the accident. The track crew spent about an hour and a half getting the wall fixed to get racing back under way. Unfortunately, right as racing was getting ready to start back up, some rain and thunderstorms moved in. head over to the XDP events page to check out where the XDP crew will be next, and make sure to stop by the booth and say hello.

NHRDA Rocky Mountain Diesel Nationals

RMDN-2017-POSTER-530

This past weekend XDP headed to Salt Lake City Utah for the NHRDA Rocky Mountain Diesel Nationals sponsored by Industrial Injection. This was a 2 day event with drag racing taking place on Friday night and sled pulls taking place on Saturday night. This event was unusual in the fact that drag racing took place and Friday and both events were at night. Usually the events are either 1 day, with everything taking place on Saturday. Drag racing during the day and sled pulls at night, or sled pulls on Friday night and drag racing during the day on Saturday.

Fridays event took us to Rocky Mountain Raceways in West Valley City UT for some night time drag racing. Big news from this event is that Jared Delekta was able to set a new Super Street MPH world record at 164.68 MPH in the Industrial Injection sponsored Duramax.

Saturday took us to Deseret Peak Complex in Tooele Utah for the some night time sled pull action.

Team XDP Meets Special Giveaway Winner

xdp-33.jpg

Every year the crew behind the scenes at XDP works to bring exclusive giveaways to our fans. These prizes range from free truck parts, to free gear and swag giveaways, and even gift cards. However, our latest giveaway was a bit more special for us, this one was for the kids!

We decided to take a KidTrax Dodge 3500 Dually (with a Cummins of course), have it custom wrapped to match our Team XDP Racing trucks and give it away to one lucky child on social media. All their parents had to do was enter. With a ton of entries, we noticed one submission posted by Jay that really stuck out to us. Shortly after his post telling his son’s story, other fans started to rally behind Jay and his son Jackson.

Here’s Jay’s original entry:

“My 2 year old son Jackson loves trucks so much that even after his recent second open heart surgery he couldn’t wait to sit up and play with his trucks. Now while he is still currently in the hospital, every morning as soon as he wakes up he wants me to take him out and push him around the halls all day in the truck the hospital has! He would be ecstatic over that truck!”

The winner was obvious, Jay and his son Jackson were chosen. In most cases, we simply collect the winner’s information, and send the prize on it’s way. However, after hearing Jackson’s story, we wanted to do something extra special for him.

After some brainstorming with XDP’s Dave Radzierez (Monster Truck Driver) and Michelle Simpson (Crew Chief), we came up with a plan to have Jackson and his entire family come up for lunch. They could get an up close look at the Monster Truck, the shop, and most importantly Jackson would be getting a truck of his own, the XDP wrapped KidTrax Ram 3500 Dually.

About a week later, Jackson and the whole family came out for a special day that only a few have ever experienced. Greeted by Dave and Michelle, Jackson got a chance to sit in the drivers seat of XDP’s “Xtreme Diesel”  Monster Truck, enjoyed a ride around the property in the UTV, and of course, Jackson got to go home with his XDP wrapped KidTrax. All in all, it was a great time, and we are so glad to have met an incredibly brave young man, and his wonderful family.

TS Performance Outlaw Diesel Drags

XDP headed to Bowling Green Kentucky recently to visit our friends at TS Performance and attend their long running and very popular, TS 2017 Outlaw Diesel Drags. This was a two-day event, filled with drag racing, dyno competition, bikini contest, and truck show-n-shine. The event also featured many vendors showing off their hottest new products.

The event began Friday with gorgeous weather and clear skies. Spectators filled the stands to enjoy some high horsepower drag racing, as well as visiting with vendors to check out their products and talk about diesel trucks. Saturday the gates opened nice and early.  With great weather again, clear skies and no rain in the forecast, spectators, racers and vendors were ready for another great day at the drag strip. Racing began about 10am with action packed races all day.

Overall, we at XDP had a great time this past weekend and we would like to thank everyone for coming out, stopping by the booth and showing their support. We would also like to thank TS Performance for the excellent show they put on each and every year.

 

Truck Crazy NJ

On June 11th, the XDP crew was at Wall Stadium Speedway for Truck Crazy, a local truck show with a great turnout. There were truck shows, truck pulls, monster trucks and a burnout contest. We were set up with two booths and also Team XDP Racing was on hand with the XDP monster truck to put on a fantastic show for the crowds. There was a good turn out for the show and we enjoyed great weather all day.

The show started at noon and the first round of monster trucks followed shortly after, Dave Radzierez was piloting the XDP monster truck, crushing all the cars on the track in its way, then jumping over the remains of the crushed cars. The first round of monster trucks was followed up with the burnout contest and then the truck pull-off contest was underway. Then it was time for round 2 of the monster trucks when Dave came back out in the XDP monster truck and put on an amazing show for the crowds, jumping and crushing all the cars left in its way.

Overall it was an enjoyable day at Wall Stadium Speedway for Truck Crazy, the weather held out and it was a nice sunny day. The truck shows, monster trucks, burnout contests and truck pulls went smoothly and it was a nice day of good family fun. We look forward to future shows coming up and seeing our fans.

On June 10th the XDP Crew headed down to Maryland International Raceway, in Mechanicsville, Maryland for the 23rd Annual XDP Truck Mania. The day was action packed with drag racing, a show n shine contest, dyno shootout, school bus races for the kids, robosaurus, burnout contest, and of course the daisy dukes contest to close out the day. With sunny skies and a growing crowd, we knew it would be a good day! The track was packed with pickups and big rigs from all over the country who came to Maryland just for Truck Mania.

The racing was intense in all classes from semis, too pickups. Alongside the track there were vendors set up. The burnout contest had the crowd going wild as everyone watched multiple pickups literally blow the tires right off them, and of course everyone loved robosaurus the fire breathing, car eating machine! Big wheel races for the kids was a huge hit, as well as the DJ playing all day. Of course, everyone loves the daisy dukes contest to end the day.

Overall it was a great day at Maryland International Raceway for the 23rd Annual Truck Mania. The weather, the racing, the show trucks, the burnout contest, and the school bus races for the kids really made it a great event to attend. We look forward to seeing everyone next year down at Maryland International Raceway.
