From utility task vehicles, motocross, diesel dyno competitions and freestyle motocross, Fall Fuel Fest is a multisport, horsepower-packed event. With $75,000 in cash and prizes, and this year’s addition of “Tuff Truck racing,” Fall Fuel Fest will be bringing in hundreds of top competitors.

With one of the toughest courses ever built, the bike and the UTV classes will battle through the carnage as they fight for big cash prizes. Going even further and over the top from last year’s event, a freestyle motocross crew is set to deliver a wild and crazy show not to be missed, and attendees will have the opportunity to see it all up close and personal. Attendees are also invited to show up early for autographs.

World Record attempts

Two world record long jump attempts are scheduled for this Saturday’s Fuel Fest. One attempt will be to set a world record in a Daugherty Racing Lucas Oil Pro Light race truck, and the other will be to break the current UTV record. Hoping to make history, WORCS National Champion Ryan Piplic will be going for the “side Side by Side world record distance jump in his 2014 Polaris 1000. He is shooting for 160 feet, and the Fuel Fest will provide the space and venue to help make it happen.

Watch as the highest horsepower diesel trucks in the world compete in a Horse Power Dyno competition. With more cash at stake than any Dyno competition in the nation, competitors give it their all to win. With stock to unlimited classes, and a chance to win cash and prizes, this competition will be fun to compete in and exciting to watch. There will also be a chassis Dyno on-site to measure the true power these diesel trucks are putting to the ground. Attendees are welcome to bring their own truck to find out what kind of power they are making, or simply sit back and watch the action.

It is suggested that this will be the most thrilling and entertaining 45 minutes in motorsports. Tuff Trucks are just what the name implies – mild to wild race trucks tackling the Ultimate Off Road course right in front of attendees. Spectators will have the opportunity to watch these trucks jump, crash and smash the obstacles on their way to winning the $1,000 cash prize.
