TOP-TIER TOP SPORTSMAN

Ohio ’ s own Chris “ Nitrous ” Nyerges roasts the slicks in Dr . Gary Schween ’ s ‘ 20 Corvette as he prepares to make a final qualifying attempt at the PDRA American Doorslammer Challenge . With a nitrous-fed , Buck-built 941ci bullet between the framerails , the Schween Motorsports Corvette is a spectacular example of the caliber of cars competing in PDRA ’ s Elite Top Sportsman class , where purpose-built cars and former Pro Mods outfitted with big-inch nitrous engines and supercharged powerplants race well into the 3-second range in the eighth mile .
