1958 Corvette Pro Mod Racer Wins Street Car Super Nationals

The 6th Annual Street Car Super Nationals was held in Las Vegas last weekend featuring an all star line-up of Pro Street racers. The cold and rainy weather was a factor as winds gusting up to 45 miles per hour caused the event finals to be shortened to 1/8 mile for safety. This 1958 Corvette sponsored by Spec-Rite Torque Converters won Sunday evening’s $20,000 Pro Street finale on a 1/8 mile track with a run of 4.039/186.72 mph against a 5.882 ET by Giuseppe Gentile’s 2008 Mustang.

Is that not one of the sweetest-looking Corvette drags cars ever?

The car is owned by Rod Burbage, the owner of Spec-Rite Torque Converters. Earlier this year Burbage drove the ’58 Corvette to a new MPH record for converter driven pro mod cars with a 6.03/242.90 charge at the Funny Car Fever with the West Coast Outlaw Pro Mod Association.
