Worthington, Ohio---Stainless Diesel, a cutting-edge manufacturer and supplier of specialty aftermarket performance products for diesel engines, is marking its third season in 2019 as the title sponsor of the National Tractor Pullers Association’s Pro Stock Diesel 4x4 3.0 Truck division. And they’re doing it by rewarding the competitors whose trucks are tough enough to run all of Region II!
The NTPA’s most prolific territory will see the single-turbocharger Stainless Diesel 3.0s crisscross Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio to hook a demanding 19 times in just under 12 weeks. In addition to the Association’s established titles and point funds for the Eastern and Western subregions, Stainless Diesel will supply $1,300 to be divided among the top three finishers ($700/$400/$200) in overall points collected across the region’s whole schedule.
That slate gets underway on Saturday, June 22 at the Preble, Indiana Power-O-Rama and wraps up 82 days later on Thursday, September 12 at the Allegan County Fair Pull in Allegan, Michigan.
“Our friends at Stainless Diesel have deepened their involvement in Region II every year since 2017,” stated Josh Steinmetz, the Association’s Social Media and Scoreboard Coordinator. “Seeing a chance to link their fine brand with an up-and-coming class, Stainless Diesel jumped on board with NTPA before the 3.0 division made its debut that year.
“This overall point fund takes that affiliation to another level.”
Stainless Diesel offers exhaust manifolds, custom turbo piping, turbochargers, and accessories for diesel trucks. Based in Middlebury, Indiana, Stainless Diesel provides its customers with superior diesel performance in everyday applications like towing and hauling as well as a competitive edge on the pulling or drag racing track.
Stainless Diesel builds both power and durability into its products and was the original manufacturer of the Stainless Dodge Cummins exhaust manifold and can proudly claim a zero-percent failure rate.
To qualify for Stainless Diesel bonus prizes (as with the regular fund). vehicles must be NTPA-registered. Be sure to check the Standings pages at www.NTPAPULL.com to keep up with all the races in Region II and nationwide.
