Firepunk Diesel 3-Next Chevrolet S-10 Cummins Drag Truck

It truly is a dang fantastic working day for the guys ‘n gals at Firepunk Diesel, whose Cummins-powered 2000 Chevrolet S-10 diesel drag truck clocked a 3.998-next 1/8-mile move at 182.67 mph. This accomplishes the team’s personal aim of making a 3-second move, and in addition, tends to make the S-10 the (unofficial) quickest and speediest diesel in existence down the 1/8-mile observe. Lavon Miller, operator of Firepunk Diesel and repeat winner of our extremely personal Diesel Ability Obstacle in 2014 and 2015 with his 6.7-liter Cummins-run 2004 Dodge Ram 3500, posted the S-10’s 1/8-mile run and commented “3.99 Little one!!!! Unbelievable group work!” That is a timeslip to body.

In addition to an eruption of congratulatory opinions on social media, one pointed out: “Completely unreal. If an individual talked about creating a move like that with a diesel engine 10-15 a long time ago, you woulda been laughed at. Unreal how significantly [the] diesel market has progressed in the previous couple years.”

Firepunk’s lightning-speedy pass, sent by driver Larson Miller, came all through the 2021 Lights Out 12 party at the South Georgia Motorsports Park. Considering the fact that the function is nevertheless in development (it operates from February 24-28), there’s time for Firepunk to punk its possess time. The S-10 is jogging in the RVW (Radial Compared to Planet) class thanks to its radial tires and all-fiberglass entire body. It truly is a class stacked with Camaro and Mustang gassers that can run 3.5 seconds at about 210 mph.

And sure, Firepunk Diesel’s S-10 is scarcely into the 3s, but 3.998 counts. It is really massive. When it is really the initially time in the 3s, we feel this is only the beginning for Firepunk and the long term of clear-functioning diesel drag vehicles.
