WEEKEND ON THE EDGE 2020
Diesel World|February 2021
2020 was the year of cancelled events. Nothing was what it was supposed to be with the ‘Rona running rampant everywhere.
JACOB WHITE

Drag races cancelled. Sled pulls all over the country cancelled. Even the Ultimate Callout Challenge, the biggest diesel gathering of the year had to be postponed and later cancelled. Social gatherings of any kind were being limited all spring and summer long but come fall, some areas were starting to loosen up the reins a bit and a few things could start happening. Luckily, one of those things was Weekend on the Edge, hosted by Edge Products at their Ogden, UT facility

For 15+ years Edge has been hosting this annual fall event and had just about come to terms with the idea of not being able to continue the tradition for 2020, but luckily county regulations let up and the team was able to put together a scaled back version of the event. In year’s past, Edge hosted quarter mile drag races on a Friday night, followed by a Saturday dyno competition and sled pull. Unfortunately, with the closing of their local track in Salt Lake City a couple years back, they’ve tried to continue with their big sled pull and dyno competition every year since. Due to some uncontrollable circumstances with this massive health pandemic around the world, it was decided to hold off on the sled pull event for 2020 and just host a quaint customer appreciation event at their facility with the Northwest Dyno Circuit portable chassis dyno to run some trucks. With next to no marketing and advertising campaign, and mainly word of mouth just weeks before the event, there were still almost 100 trucks registered to compete.

Like previous years, Edge Products hosted a small vendor alley where event sponsors like OptiLube, BD Diesel, Randy’s Transmission, Daily Driven Performance, and Industrial Injection were set up displaying some product and selling swag. Other sponsors for the event included Alligator Performance, Thoroughbred Diesel, Premier Performance, ATS Diesel, Dynomite Diesel, Nitro Gear and Axle, and SureCan. Edge even brought in a few food trucks to setup during the lunch time hours to offer free plates to the competitors, employees and public attending the event. Light rain showers through the morning limited some of the crowd in the early hours, but by lunch the sun was shining, and the horsepower numbers were rolling strong.

Somebody get this guy his money back on that exhaust kit he ordered. He only used one piece of it.
