Four Into One

Pomona Super Chevy Show Gets Shortened

Tony Kelly May 15, 2003 0 Comment(s)

When you take one of the premier Super Chevy Shows, originally scheduled as a four day event, and compress most of the action into Sunday only, it could be catastrophic. Or it could be jam-packed racing action, hundreds of show cars, and crowds of people looking skyward, hoping the weather holds (which it did).

When we saw how many racers and great show cars came out for the Sunday finale, it was bittersweet knowing that we needed more than one day to really appreciate all the cars, the races, and the people. We thank everyone who did come out because it was an event to remember.

Be sure to check out Super Chevy Magazine's extensive coverage of the Pomona Super Chevy Show in a forthcoming issue. We turned the entire staff loose with their new digital cameras and they roamed the show grounds, the midway, and the dragstrip to bring the event to life.
