Ram just pulled a record run out in the Lone Star State. At National Hot Rod Diesels Association’s Texas Diesel Nationals, the Bully Dog Ram reigned superior. This drag truck is powered by a 5.9 liter Cummins, fully equipped with all the aftermarket tuning from Bully Dog and driven by Jarid Vollmer. The diesel smoked down the track at a record 8.51 seconds while traveling 159 MPH. This is a new world record for Bully Dog and all the other performance sponsors for the truck and was definitely a highlight of the show.  Cummins is cutting up to 2,000 jobs by the end of 2015. The cuts will be in favor of saving the company up to $160-$200 million in revenue. “We are taking difficult but necessary actions to lower costs in the face of weak demand in many of our markets.” said Tom Linebarger, chairman and chief executive officer of Cummins Inc. Decreasing sales of engines and power generators around the world have been a major culprit of the issue.
