Super Chevy Show Indy, 2003

Indy's Super Chevy Show has certainly lived up to its name. The car show participant count was Super, while the race car contingent was equally Super -- not to mention, the vendor midway and swap meet, well, they were Super, too. That's why we were there. And along the way, we met lots of Super folks. All in all, things were good!

In our travels, we scouted just about every square inch of Indianapolis Raceway Park (by foot), and it never ceases to amaze. If this place could talk, we would certainly listen to all the "otherworldly" feats of speed chronicled here over the last (almost) 50 years. What do you say we get to some of the highlights, so you folks can see a slice of what you missed on this great weekend. And don't forget, complete coverage will be splashed on the pages of Super Chevy magazine, in an upcoming issue.
