Diesel Super Stock Trucks

After debuting last year at the NFMS, the Super Stock Diesel Trucks are back for a sophomore season at the hollowed grounds of Freedom Hall.  The first year proved to be a bit of a trying show for several of the competitors as they simply did not make the passes they hoped for.  Following the show many fans made their comments known of the length of time the class took and how the show truly suffered when the SSDT ran. 

I am glad that the committee gave these guys a second attempt as I have witnessed some highly competitive and exciting shows within the class this summer.  The one true downfall to the class is a simple lack of numbers, the committee truly cannot fill a 15 competitor class with true SSDT.  In 2011 the committee allowed a few competitors to jump up from the 3.0 ranks to run with the big guys, it wasn't a poor showing as the 3.0 guys got the wick lit and made a good showing!  Knowing the lack of numbers this class was a challenge but I did the best I could to decipher the guys I believe will make it the cut.
