After campaigning a show quality Willys Coupe for almost 15 seasons, the Alberta-based husband and wife duo of Gary and Sherry Miserva have ramped up their Top Sportsman racing program to “serious”….

Since first hitting the drag strip during August of 2012, the Miserva’s who are based from Sherwood Park, have been turning heads with their meticulously prepared Dodge Stratus Top Sportsman car.   Featuring a fuel injected 673 CID engine program by Sonny Leonard, the Jerry Haas-built car runs a good as it looks — hitting 6.90 secs at over 200 mph on a regular basis.
