It’s that time of the year again. The Outlaw Diesel Super Series drag racing season has officially kicked off. They just finished up their first stop of the circuit in Julian, North Carolina for the Rudy’s Diesel Season Opener at Piedmont Dragway. With that being said, it’s time for everyone to head west and land at the historic Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky on June 1-2.
The TS Performance Shootout has been held at Beech Bend for over 10 years and shows no sign of letting up. The TS Performance crew, based out of Bowling Green, assures us that this will be one of the best events of the years just like years past. Don’t forget to do your testing or shine that rig up, as there will be plenty for you and your diesel to do.
Drag Racing And Show-N-Shine
Even if you don’t have a diesel truck but love diesel trucks, you’re in luck. The TS Performance Shootout will involve the Jamo Performance E.T Bracket, ATS Diesel 7.70 Index, Flo~Pro Exhaust 6.70 Index, Firepunk Diesel Outlaw 5.90, SunCoast Diesel Pro Mod, HotShot’s Secret Pro Street, and the Industrial Injection Pro Dragster diesel drag racing. Also, there will be a massive area separately for the Show-N-Shine. If you’re someone who loves to shine the truck up in hopes for awesome prizes, come on out and check it out.
Additionally, something new for this year is a Test and Tune class throughout the weekend. If you have a diesel-powered pickup truck or car and you aren’t wanting to race but you are wanting to make a few passes down the historic Beech Bend Raceway, you certainly can now. Lastly, like every year, the annual TS Performance Bikini Contest will be held trackside.
