Top Doorslammer

I did take a little brake from working and got a cup of coffee just to check some on the Internet and got to my starting page on my computer, my own homepage of course… and did see the text “the construction of our Chevelle 65″ in the menu, I did click on it and realized that it is exactly 10 years ago since me and two good friends went up north in Sweden late and Friday night to buy a chassis that the guy who once did race with “Bjursås Camaron” started to build. It did have a Chevelle 65 body to it, I bought it because one of my friends (Jonatan Skoot) that went with me on the trip called me a couple of days before and said “this is cool, you must buy it and put together your 377 small block, you got the little M block the Callies crank, pistons, rods, heads and also the blower you bought from Adam Flamholc, just buy it this will be awesome” so we went and bought it! From the beginning I was supposed to build the car for a Swedish class named Super Small Block and then my dad found out that we were not allowed to run in the class without mufflers and a real race car does not have any mufflers he said… So this ended up with that I started on a new chassis and sold the old one because it was now time for a Pro Mod car and after some more time I decided that the metal body and the fiberglass was to heavy so I sold the plastic parts and bought everything in steel instead so I could make my own mold of the Chevelle and get a carbon fiber body instead, and of course it went that way.. A huge thanks to Kenneth Holmberg at Swecomposite for believing in me and helping me out all the way! At the same time the body was done I got a really good deal to sell my roots blower and buy a screw blower instead and of course i did! =) And this changed class for me for the third time before the car was even ready to test drive, now it was time for Top Doorslammer instead! It took 5 years before I was able to test the Chevelle for the first time, during the build of it I did think a lot of times that “fuck this, I’m going to sell this stupid money eater” but I never did… During 2011 we did test the car many times at Kjula Dragway, 2012 we did compete in a couple of Top Doorslammer races, 2013 we only did 2 test races because of a really big update on the engine, 2014 we went to 9 races and made the whole Top Doorslammer series, 2015 we went back to take it a little easy and only made 3 outings because some big updates on the car and also that we are going to build a new trailer to transport everything in so we can make the whole Top Doorslammer series during 2016 again!
One funny thing is that after 5 years of building 5 years of testing the only thing I got left from the car I once bought to start racing with is the two tail lights, it’s a lot of work and a lot of time spent in this deal…

Sometimes I wonder if it’s really worth it…. Sometimes I say a BIG NO and sometimes I say a BIG YES!… Just wonder, what do you think?

Remember time flies, spend it right!




On my way home from our after the season 2015 meeting in Top Doorslammer. A good meeting with a lot of people and the best thing of all was that we did get the event dates for the Scandinavian Top Doorslammer series for 2016!!

The calendar for next year looks like this!

Tierp Arena, June 16-19

Sundsvall Raceway, July 1-3 (preliminary date might change)

Piteå Dragway, July 8-10

Gardermoen Raceway, August 5-7

Tierp Arena, Top Doorslammer Finals, August 25-28



Ok, so I have been home for about a week now after 3 awesome weeks in USA! 3 weeks full of racing, first in Tulsa with Brandon Pesz and Randell Reid, the weekend after in Dallas with the Lindberg Brothers and the last weekend in Virginia at the PDRA finals with Brandon and Randell again, I have learned a lot, did meet old friends and made a lot of new ones! This was and awesome trip, that’s for sure!! :)

But now everything is like it was before except for my memories! ;) Now it’s time to get some stuff done in the shop so my customers will be happy and then get the Chevelle and our new trailer ready for the racing season 2016!! :) 

Stay tuned! /Andreas

I am in USA right now and have been here for one week, last weekend I was in Oklahoma at Tulsa Raceway Park and the Throw Down in T Town together with Brandon Pesz and Randell Reid that drives two of the worlds fastest doorslammers, Brandon is also a really smart engine builder / tuner so it is a really cool and awesome experience to know and get the chance to help these guys! 

After the race we headed to warm and sunny Texas and the Reid Motorsports / Pesz Power Performance shop to service Randells car before the next race in Richmond, Virginia and the PDRA Finals 22-24 October!

Must say that life feels pretty good right now and the funny thing is that this coming weekend will Jonnie Lindberg be racing in Dallas, Ennis at Texas Motorplex so if course when I am nearby I will go and work some on the worlds fastest and quickest Top Alcohol Funny Car between the two race weekends with the Pro Extreme Doorslammers! :)


Some really positive changes, we got two new team members in Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing! 

One of them will have photo / media as the main work and also help me update the homepage when we are out racing so I can spend more time tuning the car instead! The other one is a mechanic that is not afraid to get his hands dirty and that’s really good so we can turn around the car quicker between rounds next year!

This is Patrik Lissjos, in Swedish we call him “The Mas” because he is from up north Sweden, speaks funny and will work really good together with Simon because he is also a “Mas”. Patriks main work will be doing service work / check chassis stuff on the Chevelle so everything will be in good condition! He is also a really happy guy that you all can see on the picture! ;)

This is the next one, Patrik PG Gineman, also called Christian, Polka-Gris and some other names but he prefers PG! :D Patriks main work is media / photo, and help me update you guys about what’s happening when we are at the track during the season! He was with us during the race at Tierp Arena this year and I really liked Patriks work and he did fit like a glove in the team! 

So Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing is taking even one more step forward to promote our sponsors and partners more than before! How many teams in Europe got two guys that got media as main work? We do, one photo and one movie guy! ;)

And about sponsors, Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing is always looking for new partners to work with, interested? Contact us!


Go to to see Patriks earlier work! 


Me and Max spent the day getting the trailer to Sala Truck Service, they will help us lower and put on a new roof and do some other body repair on it, will be ready in a couple of weeks and then it’s time to get the lift gate, side door stairs to the level in place. This feels good!

A huge thanks to Jonnie Lindberg for letting us use the truck! :D



I have been quiet for a while now but a lot have happened the last 8 weeks, the blue bus we once started to build on is now sold and gone and now we have bought a Gray Adams semi trailer instead! :D We have already started to work on the Chevelle and its over 3 months left of this year!? Yeah I know, really strange but it also feels really good, maybe for once some stuff will be done and ready in time…. Well, we got a lot to do this coming winter… Look at the pics below ;)


This will be really good when it’s ready! :) But the most important thing to next year is just to make it safe, legal and ready to use on the road next season.


It’s a lot of room in it, two levels that are 13 long and 2.5 meters wide.

Awesome, thumbs up!

And this one is story for us now…. But I am glad that I found someone that bought it and will continue to build it and make it ready instead of just put it on a junk yard…. The funny thing is that it went back to Piteå were I bought it for 5 years ago! (But not to the same person)

This is a couple of weeks ago, the Chevelle is already in the winter sleeping spot! Impressive!! ;)

Engine out, parts controlled and sold!

Empty… :)

The drivers suit is already 5 years old!!… Time to send it and some other stuff to USA and get it recertified.

I will soon update you guys with more news and also what we have done on the trailer so far.

Stay tuned!




A little summary of our test season 2015.


Cool picture from Tierp Arena! Photo by Patrik PG Gineman

Already last year when we were on our way back home from the Top Doorslammer finals at Malmö Raceway we decided that we will throw out the clutch and put in a converter instead, and also that we will only do three maybe four test races and not the whole Top Doorslammer Series during season 2015!
The reasons to that were too many races last year and I did already know that the updates I will do on the car during the winter will be pretty expensive! =) And after the test season the plan was to start work on something better to transport the car and ourselves in instead of borrowing, rent, change trailers and busses all the time, we must fix something that works for us and will make everything easier! (you get pretty tired of loading the bus for about a day before every race and also unload it after every race…!

Anyway, I am disappointed on this test year!…. So the last two weeks I have been thinking, thinking and thinking A LOT…. I know we said 3-4 test races in 2015!
BUT!!.. I am really disappointed with what we succeeded with during the test at Tierp in May with no track at all…. Just spun the tires!
The Race at Tierp in June was pretty good, I was really satisfied, we made some good rounds and did repeat between 4.10 to 4.29 and I wish we would stopped there….
The race at Sundsvall in July was not what I did hope for, a really tricky track, missing people in the team, and a lot of stupid problems with the car…

And because of all this I wanted to go to Norway and Gardermoen Raceway for the fifth race in our series to do some more test rounds just to see if we could get back in the window that we had when we were at Tierp Arena in June, and it was really close that we did go..!

But I did decide today that we will unfortunately not go!… Too much to do in the shop and all our employs are on vacation next week and someone needs to be on the floor making money!
Sorry to say that but after a lot of more thinking I decided that it is better to start working on season 2016 instead! The white bus Olga is already sold, the blue bus that I fought would be the coolest bus on the planet (if things would turned out in another way) is pretty much sold and will soon leave us and some new energy will make my dream come true! That makes me happy! =)

I have already bought something new to transport the Chevelle in so I think it’s better to spend the money on that (and of course some more updates on the Chevelle! ;) ) instead and be ready for season 2016 in May when we are back and we will do the whole Top Doorslammer Series again (6 races) plus two test races before the season starts, just to be ready to fight for real on the first round in the series, YEAH BABY!!!! =)

I will of course keep you updated at
