Scheid Diesel Service Co., Inc hosts an annual diesel pickup rally, Diesel Extravaganza in Terre Haute, Indiana.
This event started as a TDR Rally for Dodge Cummins pickups in Effingham, IL in 1997. Due to the tremendous turnout, the TDR Rally evolved into the Diesel Extravaganza and relocated to Terre Haute, IN in 2000.
The additional space of the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds allowed Scheid Diesel to open the event to all makes of diesel pickups. Now, The Wabash Valley Fairgrounds & Crossroads Dragway is known around the United States as home to THE Diesel Event of the year!
Dan Scheid, President of Scheid Diesel Service Co., Inc. says he “loves the enthusiasm of the crowd and the unity that comes with bringing 55+ employees from all of the Scheid Diesel locations together to manage a smoothly ran event.”
Scheid went on to say that “It never gets old. I am very proud of every person that is there representing Scheid Diesel.”
Kent Crowder, who drives the Scheid Diesel sponsored Super Stock diesel pickup, offered a different perspective of the event saying,
“The competitors enjoy the enthusiasm of the crowd as well as the fact that the event is sanctioned and allows them to not only get a “hook” on their truck, tractor or semi but also counts towards the points championship in the Lucas Oil PPL series.”
The 2014 Scheid Diesel Extravaganza had 13,600 in attendance this year in addition to 810 Pit Passes 310 VIP/Vendor/media passes (including 3 national diesel magazines; Diesel Army, Diesel World, and Diesel Power), and 55 Scheid Diesel employees.
In addition, a whopping $80,000 was awarded to competitors during the 2014 Scheid Diesel Extravaganza.
