NHRA Record Holder, Comp Eliminator racer, and Sonny Leonard customer Vinnie Deceglie drove his Jerry Haas-built '63 split window Vette A/Altered to the Competition Eliminator title at last year's season-ending NHRA World Finals using a gas-burning, carbureted, 649-cid version of the 815-inch, mountain-motor IHRA Pro Stock engine. Deceglie, running on a 7.23 index, ran 6.59/211 in the semis and a 6.62 in the final round to secure the win. Wonder how fast that Vette would run with three stages of nitrous and an 815-inch engine under the bonnet? How about six-O?
