The Ultimate Callout Challenge (UCC) is one of the premier diesel competitions in the country and one of the more underrated events that takes over Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park annually. The unforgettable experience will bring together the best competitors in North America to battle it out over three days June 2-4, 2023, in a drag race, sled pull and dyno competition.
More than 200 diesel drag racers will make their way to the iconic racing facility for the event but just 30 will be vying for the 2023 UCC title. The champion will be determined by combined scoring from each day’s events.
Here’s a look at each day’s schedule and what you need to know about this great event:
Day 1: Drag Races
The competition kicks off on Friday, June 2, with competitors going head-to-head in a quarter-mile sprint, pushing their trucks to the limit in a test of speed, power, and driving skill. Gates will open at 10 a.m. with the UCC competition races happening between 10 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
A variety of additional classes will take place between 1 and 7:30 p.m.
Fans can even participate in the fun by putting their own vehicles to the limit on a dyno machine to test their engines' power all afternoon and evening from 2-8 p.m.
Day 2: Dyno Competition, Eliminations & Car Show
On Saturday, June 3, the quest for a UCC title continues during the dyno competition. If you aren't familiar with what the dyno competition is, competitors hook their trucks to a dyno machine which measures the engine's horsepower, among other things.
Watch as the competitors put their trucks on the dyno and push them to their limits, measuring peak horsepower and torque.
But don't worry...plenty of action will still happen on the track as ODSS qualifications and eliminations will take place throughout the afternoon and well into the evening.
Fans can also see some of the coolest cars in the Midwest at the Show & Shine car show.
Day 3: Sled Pull & Awards Ceremony
The competition culminates on the final day, Sunday, June 4.
Competitors put their trucks to the ultimate test, hooking up to a weighted sled and pulling it as far as they can.
This incredible display of horsepower and endurance is the final opportunity for those seeking a 2023 UCC title to add points to their weekend total.
A champion will be crowned immediately after the event.
