Dooley & Sons Hot Rod Shop Renews
SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator Shootout Sponsorship
The SHRA is proud to announce Dooley & Sons Hot Rod Shop will return as title sponsor of the Alky Digger Nostalgia Eliminator 1-2-3 Shootouts! "What a great program to reward racers for their hard work throughout the year," stated Jeff Cameron of Dooley and Sons. Jeff went on to say, "Being a racer myself and seeing the challenge and drama the Shootout brings to SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator racing, I wanted to see this program continue and I wanted to get involved and support the continued growth of the SHRA".
Here's how the Shootout works – Nostalgia Eliminator drivers will be awarded points based on their final qualifying position at each event this season. The number 1 qualifier will receive 16 points, the number 16 qualifier receives 1 point. After the next to last race of the season, the field will be set and will include the top 8 points earners in each Nostalgia Eliminator class. Eight cars from each of the three classes will be paired on a sportsman ladder at the SHRA Championship Finals. The all-important first round of eliminations for all three shootouts presented by Dooley & Sons will be held during the first qualifying session. The two quickest winners, without going under their respective index, will advance to the final round to be run in the second qualifying session. The winner will take home $500! In 2016, Tera Graves, Stephen Hansen and Doug Morrison claimed victory in their respective class.
Dooley & Sons Hot Rod Shop is a premier custom hot rod and restoration company based in Magnolia, Texas. Dooley Cameron started the shop in 1961 in Levelland, Texas as a one man shop. Five decades later with a move to Magnolia, sons Jeff and Tom work at the shop and it has grown beyond their wildest dreams. Today the facility is stretched out over 15 acres, a 20,000 square-foot facility houses custom sheet metal fabrication, upholstery, chassis fabrication, paint and body, exhaust fabrication, and final assembly departments are all under one roof. This arrangement enables the shop to maintain stringent quality control standards by closely monitoring each car through every phase of the build. During the construction phase, project cars can easily move between each department to undergo minor design changes as necessary, resulting in a remarkably well-integrated package from top to bottom. They do it all, from custom engines, expert CAD engineering, award winning interiors, show quality paint and body, metal fab, custom chassis construction – there is nothing that Dooley and Sons can’t do when it comes to making top flight award winning cars!
