As announced last month DIESEL Motorsports has some new World Titles to pass out at the end of this year and some are already coming through for the Awards.
DIESEL Motorsports proudly awards this year’s new records with many new aspirations for more next year in other classes. It takes a lot of effort from these competitors to achieve these records and we applaud them for their conviction in the sport.
The winners and awards presented this year are to competitors who have worked many hours on their vehicles and the return on their money invested is nowhere close to what they have put into these vehicles. They do it because they love the sport and the competition.
ET Bracket World Record
Doug Brarens - Mt Pocono Pa
1929 Rat Rod/Cummins
Reaction .002, ET 12.0
Doug has won this bracket three times this year with the closet reaction time to his estimated time, which he chose at 12.0. Doug also won the points award last year for this class and is on track to win again this year. Doug is also an accomplished fabricator building many of these Rat Rods with diesel power plants for the industry. They are unique looking and very safe for racing with all of the equipment needed for competition.
12.0 Quick Diesel World Record
Susan Stump -Fleetwood,PA
1934 Chevy Rat Rod
Reaction .091, 12.0
Susan come on the drag racing scene last year with her Rat Rod with a Cummins that Doug helped build for her. She obviously picked up some skills somewhere because she has been hard to beat in this bracket ever since. You can tell hers is different because it has a power-coated purple stack on her Rat Rod. These two rods always draws attention at every event and yes they do run against each other at some of the events.
Unlimited Time World Record
Brett Deutsch – Elburn IL
Record – 9.468
Muncie Dragway ¼ mile
Brett Deutsch showed up out of nowhere with his C-10 at Thunder in Muncie and blew away everyone with the speed his Duramax powered truck produced in the ¼ mile. His truck looked like a candidate for a Show-N-Shine truck until you popped the hood and looked at his drivetrain. This truck was given to him by his Grandfather at 15 and has gone through some transformations throughout the years but is currently the fastest time diesel truck in the country!
Unlimited Speed World Record
Dmitri Millard – Highland UT
2001 Chevy Duramax
Dmitri Millard has been a diesel race icon for a number of years with a history of making high dyno numbers with his truck. This year that power was transferred to the track in his 4WD 5800 lb Duramax that went 149.10 mph in the ¼ mile. His truck appropriately named “Overkill” is now known on the track as well as producing 1580 hp diesel only on the dyno.
Congratulations to the NEW World Title holders and we look to have you back for new records next year!
