holy $*@%, they did it!

KJones@enthusiastnetwork.com I’LL START this column entry with a confession. While Diesel Brothers (featuring Dave “Heavy D” Sparks, “Diesel Dave” Kiley, Keaton “The Muscle” Hoskins, and Josh “Red Beard” Stuart) has earned worldwide popularity (let’s be real here, it’s full-on superstardom at this point) since making its television debut in 2016, I haven’t been as rabid a fan as a lot of other people. I guess my initial disregard for the show—well, irritation with its antics more than having personal issues with any of the guys, especially since I didn’t even know them—dates back to the its first season on the air, when “rolling coal” (belching plumes of pollutive diesel-exhaust smoke) and finding it hysterically amusing was their shtick.

NO-BOIL BRAKING AS BRAKE systems heat up during competition or hard driving, brake-fluid temperature can increase to the point where it vaporizes and compresses, causing a mushy pedal and brake fade. To prevent this from happening, Summit Racing Equipment introduces a new DOT 4 synthetic brake fluid with a 572-degree (Fahrenheit) dry boiling point to guarantee the fluid maintains consistency even under the harshest racing environments. Summit Racing Equipment (800) 230-3030 summitracing.com LIGHT…CAMERA… Being able to see everything behind a truck when backing up at night is not always easy, even with some of the popular rear-facing cameras that are available. Rear View Safety’s Vehicle Flood Light with Backup Camera is designed to increase visibility in semi or total darkness.

distracted driving

john.lehenbauer@motortrend.com I KNOW we’ve all heard about the dangers of distracted driving. Public education programs designed to bring attention to the hazards can be seen on billboards scattered along many highways and in other forms of media. Many news outlets regularly report about accidents caused by drivers whose attention wasn’t on the road for some reason. Some of us may have even seen the effects firsthand or the aftermath of someone’s lack of attentiveness on the highway. There are so many different ways to be distracted while behind the wheel, and many times it seems as though people don’t really notice they’re not giving the road their full attention. Simple things like changing the radio station or adjusting the air-conditioning can pull people’s eyes and minds away from the road, increasing the…
