One of our favorite events of the year has to be Sacramento Raceway’s Truck Mania, an all-truck extravaganza held in Northern California. Unlike many events, Truck Mania hosts both diesels and gas-powered trucks (who doesn’t like a little friendly competition?).

In addition to the staples of diesel performance, drag racing and sled-pulling, there were a chassis dyno and dirt drags where pickups could strut their stuff. A bigger-thanever show-’n-shine featured both old and new, as well as lifted and lowered pickups of all makes and models.


Our first trip was past the show-’n-shine and the dyno, where we got our first look at the trucks of the day. In addition to lifted diesels, there were also rides with full-tilt custom suspensions, Duramax-powered GMs with straight front axle swaps and a large grouping of older, square-bodied Fords, GMs and Dodges. There were even engine swaps, some of which were the cleanest and most unique we’ve ever seen. The dyno had a large number of high-horsepower rides, including an underdog 6.0L winner of the Ford group, which put out more than 900 hp to the rear wheels.
