In 2000, when diesel truck pulling was on the rise. Erik began pulling his daily driven Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins. At that point in time, the performance level of the classes were a lot different from what they are today. It began with trucks making 400-500+ HP to what they are producing today 1800-2000+ HP. Over the years, so many things have changed. Classes have broadened, technology has vastly improved and nationwide recognition of diesel truck pulling has grown into a fully blown national level sport.

Sanctioning bodies such as the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League, The National Tractor Pulling Association, and the Ohio State Tractor Pullers Association are among the elite organizations who promote and sanction the Diesel Super Stock Four Wheel Drive Trucks throughout the year. As a result, the class has received national spotlight from television programs and national magazines.

Throughout Erik’s career, he has spent thousands of hours of hard work and dedication to compete at the highest level of competition possible and because of that he and his team have achieved great success. Along the way, Erik has met and became friends with many great people all over the U.S.

A special thanks goes out to all of those who are involved with our team. We look forward to another great season ahead!
