STRATFORD, ONTARIO (April 15, 2015) – No major changes are planned for the Fraser Asphalt Racing Team this season in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series.

The engine is fuelled with two 1050-cfm carburetors and tweaked with a Fulton nitrous system. A two-speed Hutch’s Transmission is coupled to the engine, which sits in a Fritz chassis.

Top Sportsman drag racing team makes major changes for upcoming season
STRATFORD, ONTARIO (April 13, 2015) – Bob Robinson may not be driving a new car in this year’s Quick 32 Sportsman Series, but just about everything has been changed and updated to the 1938 Chevy Top Sportsman car, including the body.
“We have changed a lot,” said Robinson, who drives the Everitt Racing entry. “Basically we have changed the whole car.
After debuting the car two years ago, the team has spent most of the off-season modifying the car, including a new 498-cubic inch all-aluminum Chevy engine with a Pro-Charger setup and alcohol injection. This combination has replaced the 632-cubic inch carburetor/nitrous system and Robinson said he is hoping for a quicker ride down the track.
“We are looking to pick it up,” he mentioned. “We should be faster.”

“We had a couple of rough years,” noted team owner Marvin Grubb, who heads up the team with his brother and driver Darrin Grubb. “But we have things sorted out now and hopefully it works out better than the last couple of years.”
Sitting under the hood of the 2011 Pontiac GXP Top Sportsman drag car is a 706-cubic inch Par Racing engine hooked to a Hutch’s Transmission Powerglide. The fuel system is a Rupert’s Racing Products item, and all the mechanicals ride on a Chris Duncan Race Cars product.
The car is capable of going down the quarter-mile in six seconds at speeds over 200 mph.
Everitt Racing Top Dragster team hoping for another good showing in Quick 32 Sportsman Series
STRATFORD, ONTARIO (February 27, 2015) – Now entering his fourth season of Quick 32 Sportsman Series drag racing, Mike Everitt has taken to racing his Top Dragster and is hoping to better his third-place points finish of 2014.
But the Stratford Ontario driver of the Everitt Racing Team said they plan on leaving the car fundamentally as last year.
“We’re not doing a great deal with the car,” he noted. “Basically this year will be to get the nitrous sorted out and drive it.”
The Top Dragster is a Spitzer Enterprises car with a 632-cubic inch for power complete with Dart Big Chief oval heads courtesy of Race Flow Development. Fuel is provided by nitrous-assisted carburetion, and a Hutch’s Transmission two-speed sits behind the engine. The car is capable of mid six-second passes on the quarter-mile at speeds of 200 mph. The team placed third in points in 2014, capped off with a series win during the Labor Day meet at the Grand Bend Motorplex.
