    Save the Dates - June 12 – 16, 2019 - TDR Rally in Columbus!
    There it is. Buried on page four of Issue 100 of the Turbo Diesel Register is a note to the audience to save those dates next year. Why? Because we're planning the next TDR Rally!​
    As you know, 2019 is the 100th anniversary of Cummins, Inc., and we are working with Cummins on a plan for a TDR rally at Cummins in Columbus, Indiana during that week. The 2019 event will feature a plant tour at CMEP, Cummins’ Columbus Midrange Engine Plant.

    We had about 200 trucks at each of the past two rallies. For the 2019 event, the folks at the plant have issued a challenge to the TDR audience, “Bring us 400 trucks!” Wow, 400 is a big number. On behalf of the TDR membership, I gladly accepted the challenge.

    This challenge translates to about 800 attendees. To accommodate this larger group, we will have planned activities for two core days – Thursday, June 13, and Friday, June 14. To keep the logistics manageable, we will split the large group of 800 in half. One day will feature a Plant Tour at CMEP and (hopefully) a Ram Ride ‘n Drive. The other day will feature a tour of Indianapolis Motor Speedway (Indianapolis 500) and a chance to do some drag racing (bracket racing) at the nearby Indianapolis Raceway Park (NHRA US Nationals). Flip groups. Repeat. The preliminary cost per person is going to run about $95.

    On Saturday, June 15, how about a Show ‘n Shine at the host area, CERAland Campground?

    That is the preliminary plan. For now, simply save the dates. The official sign-up will be opened on Monday, June 4, 2018.
    Stay tuned. More details to follow. We look forward to seeing you in Columbus, Indiana next June!
