HDT's Day At The Races [Photos]

The Bandit Series is looking to bring big rig racing back to America. One of the series' permier sponsors, Minimizer, invited HDT to attend the thrid race on the circuit at the Montgomery Motor Speedway, just outside Mongomery, Alabama. Minimizer chief Craig Kruckeburg likes to take his turn behind the wheel, and provided fans with some excitement when a mix-up in turn four put his Ford tractor into the wall. But no one was hurt and a good time was had by all. Photos: Jack Roberts

Rodeo du Camion

Rodeo du Camion is a trucking event like no other anywhere on Earth. A few dozen otherwise sensible drivers and owner-operators vie for a few thousand dollars in prize money for racing their trucks up a 12% grade hitched to 45-ton loads of 2x4s. Really. Here are a few pictures taken at the event a few years ago, the last time I was up there. Not much has changed, I'm told, and anyone who attends can expect a earful of high-energy music and a face full of diesel exhaust. No, there are no DPFs around here. It's a weekend you won't soon forget and it happens at the end of July. There's some great fishing nearby, too, if you want to make it a mixed getaway. If you have a few days to spare and you want to take in a spactacle like no other, Notre Dame du Nord, Quebec is the place to be next weekend.

Rush Truck Centers 10th Annual Tech Skills Rodeo

Day 1 of the Rush Truck Centers' 10th Annual Technician Skills competition featured 160 technicians and parts specialists from across the company's dealer network trying to diagnose staged bugs on trucks before the clock ran out. Most of the staged problems are electronic in nature, which requires technicans to run the appropriate troubleshooting steps and processes. More often than not, the problem has several trick dead ends that can mislead all but the best of them. Only 25 techs advanced to the finals.
