Jason Dietsch To Enter Coyote Stock Ranks

Posted By: Steve Baur
With car counts regularly in the 20s, the NMRA’s G-Force Racing Transmissions Coyote Stock category offers plenty of competition in a relatively inexpensive, heads-up class, and now Holley EFI Factory Super Cars driver Jason Dietsch has decided to join the ranks after purchasing a 2004 Mustang from Coyote Stock racer Jimmie Vogel.
 
“I’ve definitely been interested in the class for some time,” Dietsch told us. “We broke our Factory Super Car again, and I got to wanting one. My crew chief, Doug Thompson, said if I was going to get one, he needed to talk to the Coyote Stock guys.”
 
Dietsch struck up a conversation with Coyote Stock racer Shane Stymiest at the recent NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals in Rockingham, North Carolina, and also spoke with Coyote Stock and Limited Street racer Michael Washington.
 
“I wanted one that was nice and Shane told me about this one,” Dietsch said of the 2004 Mustang campaigned by Jimmie Vogel. “He didn’t have time to run it and we were able to make a deal. I bought his trailer and everything.”
 

Vogel had outfitted the Mustang with a 2004 Cobra body kit, Gen III sealed Coyote 5.0-liter engine and G-Force Racing Transmissions G101A four-speed with a Ram clutch. Stymiest suggested upgrading the 8.8 rearend to a Strange Engineering 9-inch unit, which is now on order.
 
“I need to go practice. I haven’t driven a stick since my circle track days,” said Dietsch of his need to get familiar with rowing the gears in his new Coyote Stock ride. “We want to have it out for US 131.”
 
Dietsch plans to get back into his Factory Super Cars Cobra Jet at some point, and his son Taylor will continue to race their second Cobra Jet in Open Comp.
 
“Taylor took over the open comp car, so that’s why I had to buy another car,” Dietsch joked.
 
“I’m excited. I’d love to see that class combine with Chevrolet Performance Stock.”
