After making history last year in the DynoMax Power to the Wheels Dyno Tour inaugural season, enthusiasts everywhere were anxiously waiting to see what and who would be competing in this year’s DynoMax Power to the Wheels Championship Shootout.
The DynoMax “Power to the Wheels” Dyno Tour tested the horsepower and torque of muscle cars outfitted with DynoMax exhaust systems and mufflers at more than 10 popular events across the nation this past spring and summer.
After over 700 dyno runs, DynoMax Performance Exhaust has named the Top Five Qualifiers for each of its competitive classes, Power-Adder and All-Motor.
