The 2014 Truckin Throwdown event was a success this year with help from EBC truck brakes. The world famous event saw a selection of loyal Truckin magazine readers take their trucks and spend the day on a variety of courses competing. The trucks are put through their paces over a Slalom course, followed by a Stop Box, then a quarter of a mile drag racing and finally an Autocross course. The event took place at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.

Here is a video of the event:

EBC Brakes sent out a set of truck brake pads to each participant to help out in the Stop Box competition. Truck brakes such as Truck Yellowstuff Sport brake pads, Extra Duty light truck, jeep and SUV brake pads and Greenstuff – 7000 Series 4×4/SUV Supreme Brake Pads are manufactured by EBC and have the ability to provide super grip on heavy vehicles moving at speed bringing them to a quick stop.

The Stop Box or Speed Stop Challenge consists of 270 feet of driving at the fastest speed possible into a 30 foot square box when the timer is stopped just as the rear bumper is over the box edge. The event makes for entertaining viewing!
