2013 Super Chevy Show - Memphis Madness

The Super Chevy Show's second year back in Memphis didn't disappoint.

By Team Super Chevy, Photography by Team Super Chevy

After last year's Memphis Super Chevy Show, we weren't sure what to expect. With such a great turnout of cars and racers for the event along with a jam packed swap meet full of cool stuff, we wondered: Could the show at Memphis International Raceway be larger?

Do Fords break down?

By noon Friday, the track was hopping with activity as racers began pulling in for Friday's test ‘n' tune session. And despite half the swap meet area looking like a mud bog because of torrential rains earlier that week, the swap meet vendors were coming out in force too. Saturday the day dawned with blue skies, cool but perfect temps, and cars backed up in both directions at the spectator and pit entrance with people anxious to come and watch all the great Chevy action taking place. Ultimately, there were more show cars, more race cars and more spectators—more, more, and more!

After such a stellar turnout, we can only imagine how much bigger it'll get next year!
