For the last eight months or so, I’ve been on a diesel BMW kick. I’ve been playing with my new-to-me 2011 335D.When I started searching for it, I really knew that at some point, these would be really popular cars for diesel enthusiasts. It’s because of the power they make (the torque this tiny engine makes is tons of fun) and the ease of modification—plus everything else that comes with a sports car that makes it so desirable.It’s been fun to see that several others in the diesel performance industry have since picked up their own 335Ds and started modifying them. I can’t wait to get to my first 2019 event and see a few hopped-up 335Ds there. It will be great to bench race a bit with other…

EVENTS PRO STOCK DOMINATIONGordyville 2019 proved to be an eye-opening weekend for the Justison pro stock tractor team from central Illinois. Not only did the Justison’s 6030 John Deere, coined “Corn Fed,” take the win on Friday evening, its second pro stock machine, a Minneapolis-Moline G1000 Vista named “Wheat Fed,” also stole the show the following night. On both occasions, Justison’s winning tractors were driven by Lance Little, longtime tractor-puller and owner of Tantrum Enterprises. Both tractors competed for the coveted win at the National Farm Machinery Show’s Championship Tractor Pull in February—and momentum is definitely on Justison’s side heading into Louisville. READY TO GO FASTThree-time Ultimate Callout Challenge competitor Donavan Harris has plans to go fast. Very fast. Faster than his four-wheel-drive Ram goes at UCC. After…

H&S Motorsports was looking to turn heads and create something truly unique for SEMA 2018. This company didn’t want the average, run-of-the-mill “SEMA build” but something unique and also very usable.Big tires, wide wheels and a lift measured in feet instead of inches are a few of the expected SEMA standards. But what could a company that builds performance diesel parts do to take such a build to an all-new level?The H&S Motorsports team set out to create a 1,400 hp triple turbo monster that would “ride like a dream on Sunday, work as it should on Monday and play as expected on Saturday.”H&S Motorsports calls its latest creation “Chocolate Thunder.”Initially, this 2018 Ford F350 Power Stroke was just going to be Chandler Fitzgerald’s (one of the owners at…

In March 2017, Eric Moberg of Neenah, Wisconsin, was in the market for a second vehicle to use as a farm truck.“My brother, Dennis, and I thought it would be cool to have a 7.3L Super Duty,” Eric explains.So, when he came across a 7.3L-equipped 2002 Ford F-250 Super Duty for $7,500, he scooped it up—not realizing the magnitude of the journey he was about to embark on.A few months into owning the vehicle, the journey began.Eric had been introduced to the world of customization and drag racing 27 years earlier by his brother, so it was no surprise that the truck would not remain in its stock configuration for long. Prior to this build, Eric had customized F-150s, a Toyota Tundra, Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and several Ford Mustangs—giving…
