The plan for 2017 was to make a mid 3.80 pass with our Chevy powered Swedish built Chevelle and also win the championship!

We are done with the mid 3.80 pass with our 3.84 at Tierp, and to win the championship this year we need to win the whole event at the finals at Sundsvall Raceway and Victor Jansson needs to either not go to the event or not get into the qualifying list so I don’t see that we will take home the championship because Victor have pretty much already done that if he just takes the car to Sundsvall and makes one pass. They have done a great year so far and I am happy to say you are soon the 2017 Top Doorslammer champions guys! 

We do right now share the second spot in points with Rimbert Wahlström in the Top Doorslammer Series and I am pretty satisfied with that anyway because we have done a pretty awesome year this year! We did miss the eliminations on the first event due to parts failure in the motor, we got the number one qualifier spot and top speed on two of the events and then one semi final round and two final rounds on totally 4 outings in 2017 and that feels really good!!

Before the Northern Swing I decided not to go to the Racestar event at Tierp Arena in the end of July just to save money and go for the championship instead, BUT it have now changed after realizing how little chance (or no chance) we have to win it and ending up on second place / first looser is just as exciting to end up as number 10 in the series if you ask me so I have changed my mind and will end the Top Doorslammer series here for Sjödin Motorsport / ÅBM Racing and go for a 3.7X pass on the Racestar event or at least repeat the 3.84 we did earlier instead! If you ask me a 3.7X pass means way much more to me than ending up on the second spot in the championship on a track I need to take out pretty much all power out of the motor just to take it from the starting line to the finish line and also risking the car with a lot of steering when doing it….

Already got two of these first looser trophys! 😉

So what do you say? Go for the second spot in the championship being nobody or go to Tierp Arena with our Swedish self-built non lightweight Chevelle with a conventional headed Chevy Big Block power plant, using a PSI D blower and not the outlaw C model without a girly traction control tuned by the monkey inside the car that drives it, it might be some smoke on the finish line to get that 70-pass but it will also be the last event for 2017 and it must be better to make a big thing of it so everyone will remember us! Right?

We got one more bottle to open up this year!!! 😀
