UCC Qualifier Kelsie Epps has one goal at the upcoming Ultimate Callout Challenge - beat Charlie Keeter! Epp is a qualifier at this year's event, which means she could return as a competitor if she finishes in the Top 5. You'd think that was more important than beating Keeter - but no - the rivalry is more important. Kelsie's truck is now a triple turbo monster that's undergone plenty of changes to prep for the event. Like most qualifiers - and competitors - she's hoping to get through each event - drag racing, dyno, and sled pull - without breaking. 

Paul and Chris also welcome Duramaxtuner lead diesel tech D.J. Wlasiuk to talk about his latest adventures in the shop. It turns out he''s been swapping engines - tough job made tougher with weird wiring harness issues.

The 2018 Ultimate Callout Challenge is 90 days away! Joe Virgillo's four-door, short-bed, '06 Cummins will be ready - but probably not until a few hours before the event gets underway. Like many of the participants, he's scrambling to get done. Paul goes into detail on Joe's build and asks what else he's planning for 2018 UCC. As many know, qualifiers like Joe who place in the Top 5 this year get an invite to come back as competitors in 2019.

Paul and Chris talk to a Ultimate Callout Challenge Qualifiers this week. He's Justin Mcnichols of Kinston, Ohio who drives a GM body with a Dodge engine and transmission. As a qualifier, Justin could get an automatic entry as a competitor in 2019 if he finishes in the top five among the group - making for a very interesting side story to the 2018 UCC.
