Chevy High Performance - - Straight Line -

Aus­tralia’s dy­namic drag rac­ing scene oozes with nu­mer­ous im­pres­sive Chevro­let en­tries. The brand ded­i­ca­tion of one racer in par­tic­u­lar stands out. Ja­son Don­nelly, a highly suc­cess­ful busi­ness owner based out of Tam­borine, Queens­land, Aus­tralia, has a long­time pas­sion for the iconic styling of Chevro­let’s 1957 model year, and his mul­ticar D.B.S. mo­tor­sports op­er­a­tion em­pha­sizes ex­actly that. Ja­son and his sons Jake and Dan drag race no less than four 1957 Chevy cars, in­clud­ing a one-of-a-kind 1957 No­mad Pro Slam­mer (Aussie-rules Pro Mod), a Su­per­charged Out­laws 1957 Chevy Funny Car, a 1957 Chevy ex­hi­bi­tion wheel­stander, and an amaz­ing Top Sports­man 1957 Chevy. Ja­son’s Top Sports­man ’57 is a rather stock ap­pear­ing and all-steel orig­i­nal car (ex­cept for the front clip and trunk lid) that tips the scales at 3,100 pounds. With a 623ci ni­trous-in­jected pow­er­plant and its re­mark­able paint scheme it has de­vel­oped into a huge fan fa­vorite “down un­der” dur­ing its 10-year ex­is­tence.
