2011 Super Chevy Show Denver - Rocky Mountain High

The Super Chevy Show chugged into Bandimere Speedway for another mile-high fest of Bow Tie action.

After a great car show in Spokane, Washington, we were wondering what kind of cool stuff the Denver show would have in store. Well, we weren’t disappointed. The pits were full of race cars (oddly enough, we both noticed a lot of them were ’62-67 Novas) and the car show field was packed with a great variety of cars—restored, unrestored, restomodded, street cruisers, everything. That’s the beauty of the Super Chevy Show series—there’s a spot for everyone. Doesn’t matter how much or how little you’ve spent on your Chevy, at the SC Show you’ve got good odds at taking home some sort of award.

By the end of the weekend we were beat with a full case of Bow Tie hangover. And we had the seventh round of our AMSOIL Best of the Best Competition, presented by Danchuk.

So, let’s get to the photos so you can really see what was going on.
