Ultimate Callout Challenge Qualifier: Driver Announcement

It’s the beginning of the week, and that means it’s time to announce more of the competitors in the Ultimate Callout Challenge Qualifier. Coming up on fifty entrants, this event in May will hands down be the craziest and most fun event yet. Be sure to order your tickets on the Ultimate Callout Challenge website and use the promo code: DieselArmy.

Driver: Cory Witteveen

Another driver, Cory Witteveen, for team Canada is coming to Indianapolis with some serious heat. Utilizing a 2005 Dodge Ram chassis, the powerhouse engine is a 6.4-liter 12-valve Cummins engine with twin p7100 injection pumps and a combination of triple turbos.

Cory has been into diesel trucks since he could drive them and loves competition. Cory is excited to compete on the big stage at this year’s Ultimate Callout Challenge qualifier.

Driver: Jason Lewis (Jay Lew)

Jason Lewis out of Grafton, Massachusetts has teamed up with Wilson Patterson Diesel, out of Lafayette, Indiana to embark on their first ever UCC challenge in May of 2018! Jason has been racing and competing in the diesel industry for about 6 years and Wilson Patterson Diesel has been building and racing in the competition diesel industry for over 10.

Lew and Co. have been desperately trying to get this truck lighter and lighter. Less weight means more speed.

This year’s 2018 UCC competition truck started out as a manual 2006 dodge 3500 dually and was then converted to an Automatic, single, rear wheel. Complete with a WPD 48RE transmission, a 2,013 HP single charger engine built by Freedom Racing Engines, for the competition it will have three turbos. This truck will be a threat, so keep an eye out for the truck with the Michigan plates.

Driver: Sid Hippler

From New Windsor, Maryland, Sid Hippler, owner of a small, veteran-owned shop has a group of highly dedicated and motivated guys to crew with him at this year’s Ultimate Callout Challenge qualifier.

The truck he’ll be competing with has been owned by him for eight years and has been down for a while now. Hippler and Co. and their 2006 LBZ Duramax are gearing up for this year’s event as we speak. With what looks to be a trio of turbochargers, this truck will mean business.

Hippler’s Duramax engine looks freshened up and ready for battle. Is this truck all show, or does it have some go?

Driver: Dan Manary

Mr. Manary is no stranger to competition or diesel performance in general for that matter. Manary is a shop owner in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. Diesel Industries will be in tow come May for the Ultimate Callout Challenge qualifier.

Over the last few years, Manary hasn’t had the greatest of luck in other diesel challenges but he’s looking to make a turn for the better. We’ve learned that Manary has blown up six different engines since his last competition in 2014. While the most power his truck has made on a stock 6.7-liter Power Stroke injectors was 1,169-horsepower, he looks to surpass that.

With the help of dual fueler kit, monstrous nitrous kits, and quadruple turbochargers, this truck will be one of the craziest builds on the property. Keep an eye out for the great white Ford.
