Diesel Power Challenge 2017 Presented by XDP’s nine reader-selected contenders compete against 2016 champ Charlie Keeter, in an event designed to assess each driver’s skill. On the obstacle course, the spotlight shifts from a truck’s go-fast prowess to the driver’s ability to navigate a coned-off, CDL-style training circuit while maneuvering with a 10,000-pound tractor-carrying trailer in tow. Completing the course with the quickest time can help a driver inch closer to claiming the overall DPC title.
Starting October 9th, 2017, 2017, host Brian Lohnes takes you through our weeklong torture test that features 6 competitive events, 10 trucks, and 23,172.2 combined horsepower and torque at the rear wheels. We push Cummins-, Duramax-, and Power Stroke–powered trucks well beyond their limits in this search for the ultimate street-legal diesel truck and driver.
