As diesel performance came into its own in the early 2000s, engine builders who had an interest in this arena got caught up in the power potential, the fun, the chance to learn something new, and the joy of experimenting with industry firsts. That was certainly the case for Jeff Dean, owner of On Track Automotive & Diesel Performance located in Lancaster, OH.
In the early 2000s, he started seeing more and more diesels while attending truck pulls and drag races, and it led him to get his own 2006 LBZ regular cab truck. From that point on, Jeff jumped into diesel performance with both feet. In fact, in 2011, Jeff decided to build a dedicated diesel dragster with an LBZ Duramax engine, and we have the details in this episode of Diesel of the Week.
