Dooley and Sons Racing

A life-long fan of the Gasser era of drag racing, Jeff's first race car was a 1948 Anglia that he bought as a kid in 1984. After swapping in a 454 big-block Chevy in it out of his '70 SS Chevelle, the Anglia laid down 11.15-second passes at Amarillo Dragway. The responsibilities of life forced Jeff to sell the Anglia, but the itch to get back in the driver's seat eventually prevailed. As such, he picked up a '48 Austin a few years back, and immediately dropped in a 582 cubic inch big-block Chevy along with a Powerglide transmission. The stout combo was good for 8.52-second passes at 152 mph in naturally aspirated trim. He ran the combo hard for several years at various nostalgia drag racing events, but when it came time to freshen up the motor, he figured it was the perfect opportunity to step things up in a big way.

With 7-second e.t.'s as target, Jeff completely revamped the entire car with an all-new chrome-moly chassis by Lafitte fabrication. New carbon fiber tubs and panels have dropped curb weight down from 2,600- to 2,189 pounds. In search of more power, Jeff converted the big-block to alcohol injection with a pair of twin 4500 throttle-bodies and a Ron's EFI system. The rest of the combo features a Dart block, Brodix BB-3 Xtra aluminum cylinder heads, forged 14.0:1 pistons, a Comp 281/301-at-.050 camshaft, T&D shaft-mount rockers, a custom Lafite sheetmetal intake manifold, and custom 2.375-inch headers. A custom one-off fuel cell of Rick's Fuel Systems keeps the alcohol flowing. The potent Rat motor is tied to a Hughes 6,200-stall converter and a Sullivan Motorsports Powerglide.

 Hooking it all to the pavement is a custom four-link suspension that anchors a Strange 9-inch rearend fitted with 40-spline axles and 4.30:1 gears. Billet Specialties wheels wrapped in 32x14-inch Goodyear slicks put the custom chrome-moly wheelie bars to good use. With the 2015 race season quickly approach, Jeff hopes to lay down some 7-second test passes soon.

In 2018 Jeff Cameron made a life long dream of his come true by adding a second car to the team.

This 1993 Blown Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Roars to life powered by a 582 Big Block Chevy with a 10.71 Blower to control those Butterfly's.

June of 2019 another car was added to the already busy Race Team. A 1971 Ed Mabry Front Engine Dragster with a 350 Small Block Chevy Engine would become the Third edition to the Dooley and Sons Race Team. This car was unveiled July 5th, 2019 at Pine Valley Raceway in Lufkin, Texas at stop number Four of The Funny Car Chaos Series . Piloted by Ashley Maynard, a recent graduate of Frank Hawley's drag Racing School is putting her Skills to use in this Slick Black Dragster.
