sema what we’re up to this year

The SEMA Show is the automotive aftermarket’s yearly trade show that takes place in Las Vegas every November/ late October. It’s the largest show the aftermarket has and straight-up dwarfs any car show you’ve ever been to. It’s the second largest convention Vegas hosts each year (based off of last year’s numbers it’s rivaled only by CES, the Consumer Electronics Show), drawing over 160K attendees and 2,400 exhibitors. Once a year the entire town is taken over by auto industry people of all kinds. Driving in the city during the event is tough because everywhere you look there’s some over-the-top custom vehicle.

weekend on the edge 2018

Nearing its twentieth year in business, Edge Products of Ogden, Utah, is known as one of the largest performance tuning companies in the industry. After hitting the scene clear back in 1999 with their “Comp” box for the 1998.5-2002 24V Cummins, their ability to squeeze every bit of extra power and efficiency out of a truck’s engine has helped grow the company into what it is today. With a 40,000-square-foot headquarters and nearly 100 employees on staff, Edge Products offers gear for diesel- and gas-powered rigs, as well as the Jeep market.

ultimate callout challenge 2019 qualifier

Edge Products teamed up with the Ultimate Callout Challenge crew to host a 2019 UCC Qualifier to be run during the normal Weekend on the Edge scheduled events. The UCC Qualifier brought in a few heavy hitters trying their hand at competing in all three events—dyno, drag, pull—in hopes of being the one truck that would win an invitation to the UCC 2019 next May in Indianapolis. The Ultimate Callout Challenge has become the largest diesel competition of the year after just three years of existence, and getting a chance to compete with the biggest names in the business is one heck of an accomplishment.…
