Firepunk Diesel Race Team Sets New Pro Mod Records

Firepunk Diesel’s 1970 Duster is now quickest and fastest with an ET of 4.101 and a recorded 194.41 mph.

Firepunk Diesel race team owner Lavon Miller and driver Larson Miller acquired two Pro Mod records for speed (194.41 mph) and elapsed time (4.101). The records were set at the first and third Outlaw Diesel Super Series (ODSS) events of the season. 

In the first ODSS event, two racers competing in Pro Mod class battled for top honors in ET at Orlando Speed World as part of the Florida Truck Meet (April 5-6). Larson Miller, driver of the Firepunk Diesel Duster, briefly held the title for quickest ET, before Johnny Gilbert set an ET record of 4.109. Though losing the battle for the best ET, Miller achieved a record-breaking speed of 194.41 mph. 

The new ET record occurred on June 2nd at the Outlaw Diesel Revenge presented by Firepunk Diesel. At this ODSS event, which runs simultaneously with Ultimate Callout Challenge at Indianapolis Raceway Park, Miller got revenge, recording a 4.101 pass to set the new Pro Mod record for diesel drag racing. This makes Firepunk Diesel’s dark plum, Cummins-powered Duster both the fastest and quickest diesel Pro Mod. 

The record holding Firepunk Diesel Duster features a D&J Precision Machine Executioner 6.7L Cummins engine, a 5-speed Liberty transmission with a Ty-Drive and a Neal Chance converter. The engine, fuel system and transmission, all performing under extreme conditions, with the protection of a slate of Hot Shot’s Secret diesel performance additives, Adrenaline racing engine oil, transmission fluid and gear oil.
