Young Blood Unleashed sold to Europe!

The unlimited modified tractor called ''Young Blood Unleashed'' of the Young Blood Pulling Team around Brian Shramek from Williamsburg, Missouri in the USA was sold to Europe. The Young Blood Unleashed was purchased included with the last 2 New Century V8 engines of the machine by the Aftermath Pulling Team around Daniel Whittingham from Preston in Great Britain.
The Young Blood Unleashed tube chassis was built by Tim Engler of Engler Machine & Tool from Princeton, Indiana in 2012 and is much lighter compared to the old Aftermath tube chassis. The Young Blood Pulling Team stepped into the unlimited class in the year of 2009.
After many victories in the years before and the NTPA Grand National title in the Diesel Super Stock division with their Agco DT225 component tractor called ''Young Blood'' in 2007, the team around Brian Shramek purchased the 6 New Century V8 engine powered tractor called ''Bad Habit'' of Steve Klingenberg from Holland in Michigan in the winter of 2008. During that time the tractor was improved and the engines were updated with better blowers and scoops. For the 2012 season, the old Engler chassis was replaced by new better and lighter chrome-moly tube chassis. With the brand new chassis and the updated 6 blown New Century engines, the Unlimited was very competitive against all the Hemi powered tractors in the unlimited class. In 2012 and 2013, the team finished with their unlimited mod in runner up position of the NTPA Grand National point standings.
Another highlight for the US team was the European Superpull in Ahoy Rotterdam, where the guys were invited with their Young Blood Unleashed in 2013. The Young Blood Pulling team competed with their machine until 2015.
After that, the team concentrated more on their both Agco component diesel super stock tractors called ''Young Blood'' and ''The Legacy''. Since that the ride was standing in the workshop of the team. During that time, 4 of the 6 New Century power plants were sold to the Aftermath Pulling Team in Great Britain too.
The chassis with the last 2 engines arrived on a ship on the 2nd of January 2020 in Great Britain. The Aftermath Pulling Team have planned to drive with 3 New Century engines on the Engler chassis in the 2.5t / 5500lbs light modified class in 2021.
