Daily-Driven Performer

May 2009 Feature

You know they used to say that what won on Sundays would sell on Mondays. Well, in the case of Matt Moon and his 2002 GMC LB7 Duramax, that statement still applies. Except this all-purpose Sierra is usually racing on Friday, pulling on Saturday, towing on Sunday and working on Monday.

As a long-time employee at Gillett Diesel Service in Bluffdale, UT, Moon has come to learn a thing or two about diesel performance. When you're answering phones and talking with customers about every aftermarket performance product under the sun, you need to know what you're talking about. In Moon's mind, there was no better way to gain that knowledge than to start using the stuff he sold on a daily basis in his own pickup. This '02 GMC has since become a dominant force in the United Truck and Tractor Pulling series across the mountain west states and it's turned out to be a pretty competitive truck at the drag strip and dyno events as well.

In talking with Moon, it's easy to see his true passion is in the truck pulling, as this truck has been meticulously built-up to compete in the 2.8 Super Street pulling class. Like any other competitive daily-driven pulling truck, the road to here hasn't been easy.
