Some Canadian door slammer racers have made real impact statements in recent times …. check it out!….
TS from TB! –Thunder Bay Ontario’s Rob Meservier scored a major win at the NHRA LODRS regional level when he won at Earlville Iowa last weekend. Rob’s super cool NOS-injected Chevelle was the only Canadian car entered in that event’s 34-car field in Top Sportsman. He qualified #20 and then won five rounds – holding off Jim White in the final to claim his first win at the NHRA divisional race level. (Photo courtesy of NHRA)
