Rules:

For all trucks entering into the truck pulls, please make sure your turbo will pass these rules. If you have a Duramax YOU WILL HAVE TO PULL YOUR INTAKE! Please dont argue with us about how much trouble it is. Other then the turbo rules, make sure there is not nitrous or other injectables, have ujoint shields and reasoanbly adequate saftey equipment and we will get you through tech.
