Thunder in Muncie 2001-2011
Back to the beginning – Lion’s Club Park, Gaston IN 2001-2011!
What a Saturday night in Gaston Indiana for Diesel Motorsports, sponsored by PureDieselPower.com! This sled pulling event was held in honor of where it all began 10 years ago. Gene Mohney and Eric McBride who orchestrated and held the first event was there to tell the story.
Originally held as a TDR club event along with letting outside diesel trucks in to sled pull on the local fairground. A fairground that has been in the small farming community since 1935, you could tell by the giant trees shading the fairgrounds.
Yes many of the locals still remember the original event and a few stated they still had the original Thunder in Muncie t-shirt. They told me the trucks were quite different then and the newer trucks put on much more of a show of power going down the track.
Many of the local shops came with trucks representing their abilities and those who were here in the beginning; Dave’s Diesel, Haisley Diesel, Wade Wright’s Garage, and many more.
A very nice beginning to bringing back a legendary event, yes we will be back next year!
