Logan Yelton’s 1993 Dodge W250 got plenty of attention at the World Cup Finals for the right and wrong reasons. The truck stood out in a sea of imports, thanks to its immense size and the fact that you just don’t see many at the track. Yelton’s pit became a hive of activity after he absolutely destroyed a differential during a pass in spectacular fashion and had to thrash to get the truck repaired.
You can usually find Yelton racing his big Dodge in the Outlaw Diesel Super Series 5.90 Index class. The truck is powered by a Scheid Diesel-built Cummins engine that’s filled with top-tier parts, and it’s capable of making nearly 1,800 horsepower. Yelton built the 48RE transmission at his shop, Loganbuilt, and it helps transfer the power back to the factory Dana 60 reareend that works with a Strange Engineering third member.
Qualifying for the World Cup Finals isn’t easy at all, so if you want to make the field you need to leave it all on the track, which is what Yelton did…literally. During round two of qualifying, Yelton’s Dodge totally demolished its transfer case and driveshaft just before the 60-foot mark on the track. Check out our video interview with Yelton where he talks about what it was like inside the truck when the transfer case went boom, and the lengths he went to so he could race again at the World Cup finals.
