Big or Small, Open or Enclosed, Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales Covers the Racer’s Needs for Hauling or Displaying
By Evan J. Smith
From three-wheel ATVs to dirt bikes, go karts, open-wheel modifieds, and a variety of asphalt race cars, Jason Dietsch has been there and raced that. Today, his motorsport of choice is drag racing, and that’s great news for anyone involved in the Red Line Oil NMCA and/or Holley NMRA Drag Racing Series.
Why you ask? Because Dietsch isn’t just a racer, he’s also the owner of Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales, a leading retailer of trailers, toter homes, race haulers and other related products.
“I started racing at 13 on a three-wheeler,” Dietsch recalled. “Then, I moved on to a bunch of other cars, mostly circle track stuff. The problem is that style of racing takes a large crew and a lot of hours in the shop. I had several guys tell me to go drag racing and I’m glad I finally listened. It’s the best thing I ever did. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s great for business.”
Currently, Dietsch competes in the Holley EFI Factory Super Cars class with his Cobra Jet Mustang, while his son, Taylor, posted a strong fifth place finish in Magnafuel Open Comp and also races in the Coyote Stock class at NMRA events. Meanwhile, his daughter, Jaden, recently completed her first season in the Jr. Street category. Jaden is about to turn 16, and the plan for 2024 is to move up, most likely to the new Street Bandit 10.10 class.
“I’m not smart enough to get out, so I’m still going to run in the Factory Super Car class, but it’s pretty tough out there,” Dietsch said. “As for my kids, they’re having a ball. In addition to Open Comp, Taylor took over the seat in our Coyote Stock Mustang and that’s a great class. He’s hoping to race for the championship next season.
“I think Jaden will eventually be in a Cobra Jet, but for now, we just got her a 10-second Mustang streetcar and we really like the [Street Bandit] 10.10 class. I need to keep her in a different class than her brother, so they don’t wreck each other.”
On the business side, Dietsch, perhaps as much as anyone, understands the wants and needs of racers because he’s a racer himself.  It might seem overly obvious, but it’s impossible to win a race if you can’t get your car to the racetrack, so Dietsch strives to provide trailers that make towing safe, efficient, and comfortable. 
Located in Edgerton, Ohio, Dietsch operates the largest open and enclosed trailer dealership in Northwest Ohio, and he’s been the top ranked United Trailers dealer for eight years running. 
Dietsch stocks more than 400 trailers, including stackers, specialty built, enclosed, dump, equipment, or utility trailers. In addition to United, Dietsch stocks trailers from ATC, Behneke, Darkhorse, Lamar, Legend, Load Trail, Sure-Trac, and Sundowner.
“We have trailers in almost every size imaginable,” Dietsch said. “There’s not too many requests that we can’t fulfill, and even though prices have gone up the last few years, we try to work with customers the best way we can.”
“I’d say that 40 percent of our business is racing, and the business grows every year, so yes, the whole racing program has been very positive,” Dietsch said. “Drag racers tend to do a good job of taking care of their equipment and keeping it nice, which helps the used trailer market. The biggest thing is that we’re involved in racing. You can find us at the track so we’ve got a lot of one-on-one interaction with our customers. You won’t find that everywhere.”
