The Wounded Warrior Project helps veterans get back on their feet after serving in areas of conflict, like Iraq and Afghanistan. Big events like the Ultimate Callout Challenge offer opportunities to the WWP because here they can meet other vets - maybe even encounter those who may need their help. The organization provides outreach to help vets in need. Paul talks to Jesse Babson of Detroit, Michigan - an Army vet who served two tours - one in Iraq and the other in Afghanistan.

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.
