For Steve Corriveau, 2010 was the right time to start racing in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series presented by NAPA Auto Parts.

“I’ve always loved fast doorslammers,” said the driver of the 1967 Chevy II Top Sportsman entry. “I was trying to find the right time to get into this type of racing, but the Quick 32 Sportsman Series opened the door.”

After racing for about 20 years, Corriveau toyed with a dragster to race in the series, but the opportunity came along to purchase the ex-Bruce Boland Pro Modified, and he set out to make the car a top runner in the Quick 32 Sportsman Series. Running a DSE1-built big-block Chevy engine, Corriveau won the Top Sportsman side during the series’ opener at the Cayuga Dragway of Toronto Motorsports Park in May 2010, and knew he had made the right decision.

“We weren’t sure how this was all going to turn out, but it’s been okay so far,” he noted. “I knew the car I got from Boland had been a successful car, and I’m glad I stepped up to the class.”

Corriveau has bolstered his effort with a 615-cubic inch, nitrous-fueled engine from the shops of DSE1, and a two-speed Powerglide sits behind the engine between the rails of the TT Fabricating car chassis.
