2019 RUN WHAT YA BRUNG CLASS CHAMPION:
Lester Bates and “Completely Nuts”
The USA-EAST Sanctioned “Run What Ya Brung” Modified 4×4 Truck class is a very competitive class of open class trucks. The rules make the class significantly more open in its complexion. Beginning in 2013 the class was opened to gas and alcohol trucks with superchargers (‘blowers’) that added some very strong trucks to the mix. And the rules allowed the use of Nitrous Oxide (NOS) in certain configurations. These changes were designed to allow the gas trucks and the diesel trucks to compete in the same class. And in 2017 two-wheel drive trucks were admitted to the class.
Lester Bates from Hadley, Pennsylvania took the USA-EAST championship in 2019 with a 2012 Ford powered by a 731 cubic inch mountain motor. The truck, sponsored by Whitehead Tool of Guys Mills, PA, did not use a super charger on the alcohol fueled engine but relied on raw cubic inch displacement to get the job done. Bates had taken the entire 2018 season off from pulling in order to get the new engine perfected and came back this year with one goal in mind … to win the championship.
Diesel Trucks taking on Gasoline Trucks including both 2 and 4 wheel drive trucks in a 300-foot ‘free-for-all’ – that is the essence of the RWYB Modified Truck division, promoted exclusively by Full Pull Productions, Inc. and sanctioned by USA-EAST Sled Pulling.
The class sponsor in 2019 was Warren Diesel Injection of Guys Mills, PA allowing for a very handsome point fund for this division. Cen.Pe.Co. Lubricants provided end-of-season bonus bucks to the ‘Run What Ya Brung’ division in 2019.
