year was a great success, and this year will be better," Bruce
Mallinson says. Mallinson, owner of Diesel Injection of Pittsburgh
and a regular columnist for Land Line Magazine, is the show's
announcer. "We'll have lots of horsepower fun and great food
will be an outside display of the dyno monitor and plenty of seating
on the bleachers," Mallinson says. "The spectators will
know who owns the truck, the transmission, the rear gears, type
of engine and what modifications were done to produce the horsepower."
says he'll also offer a short story about each owner and where he/she
must pre-register for this event.
because we can only dyno 30 trucks in a day’s time," Mallinson
says. "So far we have trucks registered from eight different
states. Ted Streit, OOIDA member from Gillette, WI, is the truck
coming from the greatest distance so far."
what about you West Coast guys?" he says. "We always hear
about your big trucks, so bring them to Maryland and show us what
you've got. Rumor has it that the Texans are coming. And that would
be OOIDA members Frank Hieden, Tomball, TX, and Butch Schuman, Tye,
TX, with their twin-turbo K-Series Cummins powered A-Model Kenworths.
Bruce Pope will be there with his Mike Robinson-built 3406-B Cat
engine that last year put 902 horsepower to the ground. And I'm
sure that last year's winner, Mutt Tayman, will be there to defend
his title as king of the hill."
says there will be six classes of engines so the smaller cubic inch
engines won't have to compete against the K's. The mechanical engines
and electronic engines will have their own class.
