Hot Shot’s Secret Congratulates Firepunk Diesel On Achieving A World Record   

Lavon Miller and his Firepunk Diesel/Save the Racks S-10 rode a rail all the way down to the finish line to break the world record at an amazing 4.47 at 167 miles per hour.

Lubrication Specialties Inc., manufacturer of Hot Shot’s Secret and sponsor of the Firepunk Diesel race team, congratulates Lavon Miller and his entire team on their record-breaking 1/8th mile at the Hardway Performance Sunshine Showdown this weekend at the sixth stop of the Outlaw Diesel Super Series in Florida.

The Firepunk Diesel/Save the Racks Chevrolet S-10 driven by Larson Miller had an epic day at the track. In the first round of eliminations – even with problems keeping the truck tracking straight – Miller tied Ryan Milliken’s record of fastest diesel-powered door car in history at 4.554 and a 3.04 half-track time. After the pass, the Firepunk team began working furiously to resolve the tracking problem, which turned out to be a broken suspension component – fixed just in time for the final round.

Miller and his Firepunk Diesel/Save the Racks S-10 rode a rail all the way down to the finish line to break the world record at an amazing 4.47 at 167 miles per hour.

Lavon Miller, owner of Firepunk Diesel and three-time Ultimate Callout Challenge winner shared, “I am so proud of the entire Firepunk Diesel team right now. This build has been a fight, but we are finally going straight and breaking records. This 4.47 at 167 mph in the 1/8th makes us the fastest diesel door car on the planet.”

Hot Shot’s Secret has sponsored Lavon Miller for more than a year and recently announced sponsorship of the entire Firepunk Diesel team. Kyle Fischer, director of marketing for Hot Shot’s Secret said, “For the better part of a year, we have had the most amazing opportunities to work with Lavon and the Firepunk Diesel team to test Hot Shot’s Secret products and conduct deep R&D on the dyno and track. It’s been such an honor to work with their team as they built and dialed in this world-record truck. They are the hardest working guys in the business.

“As a multi-year champion, Lavon has a reputation to uphold,” continued Fisher. “We knew if our products did not make the grade he would use another brand of oil. That he’s racing, winning time after time and breaking records with our Adrenaline race oil is a testament to the brand’s quality. In fact, the World’s Fastest Diesel in the 1/8 mile is by Hot Shot’s Secret sponsored driver Wade Moody while using Hot Shot’s Secret Adrenaline Racing Oil. He went 4.11 seconds at 179 miles per hour. Very heady stuff indeed.”
