Super Chevy Show: Vegas Baby!

Feb 15, 2013

Las Vegas is a destination that offers all kinds of things to do. Want to see disappearing tigers? Go see a show. Want to stuff your face till you pop? Just hit a buffet. Want to test your luck and try and win some money? Well, you can do that anywhere in the city limits—even at the airport!

But if you want to see Bow Ties tearing up the asphalt then you needed to be at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to check out the Super Chevy Show Presented By Chevrolet Performance.

It had all the elements you could want; a show and shine, a swap meet, an autocross, vendors and let’s not forget the 1,320 feet of pure unadulterated gearhead heaven.

Door slammers, Pro Street, altereds and outlaws filled the air with the sweet smell of burnt rubber and race fuel while tearing up the drag strip. We gotta tell ya there are some fast vehicles in Vegas.

On the other side of the grandstands was the autocross course that was sponsored by Total Cost Involved, Currie Enterprises and The course was set up and run by the Las Vegas Region SCCA. These guys laid out a track that was technical enough to test a seasoned driver, but not so complicated that a beginner couldn’t give it a go.

If you have never tried an autocross you really should give it a try. These short courses are a great way to have some serious fun without risking too much. Unless you really do something wrong the worst thing that might happen is a little cone rash on your paint, but that will buff out. c
