After the whirlwind of action at the Norwalk show, it was time to head west for the vast area of the Great Plains and Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas, for the next stop on the Super Chevy Show tour. I met up with Super Chevy's tech editor Calin Head to check out the show cars, drag action, and the hot laps being run at the autocross. The Corvette Club of Topeka was generous enough to come out for the weekend and manage the autocross, so everything was fun and safe. The club's Dale Long was nice enough to help other drivers with tips and tricks for running the course, in between driving his wife's C5 Corvette to the fastest times of the weekend. There are plenty of pictures of the cone dancing action later on in the story, with captions from Calin.
At the dragstrip, the Pro Mod racers were spicing things up for the quarter-mile show while the bracket cars rolled through like a rubber-burning army. In the car show area, competition was hot and heavy to take top honors in each Bow Tie class.
