Brett Deutsch's 1969 C10 Has Duramax On Top In Pro Street
Brett Deutsch's trip from Elburn Illinois, which is located west of Chicago, to the 2014 NHRDA World Finals Presented by Shell ROTELLA was historic in more ways than one. His victory over National Champion Jarid Vollmer's BullyDog Dodge in the final round was his first ever NHRDA World Finals victory, and to top it off he set the mark as the fastest VGT powered Duramax ever. In fact it's the first time a Duramax has set the ET record in the Pro Street Category.
"We didn't know we'd set the record until later" said Brett. "We ran the 8.81 in the final round and thought since we couldn't run again to try and back it up we didn't have the record. Later we found out an earlier run served as the backup."
His 1969 Chevrolet C10 is a fantastic example of an old school truck, with new technology in Pro Street. The truck makes over 960 horsepower on the tune that made his record setting pass, and has made a whopping 1, 100 horsepower with over 1,650 foot pounds of torque on the Dyno The team is still working on getting the transmission settings just right for the higher horsepower their Duramax is making.
The truck originally belonged to Brett's grandfather and has had a number of different power plants and combinations over the years. It is still very much in street Form, it even has Air Conditioning!
