2011 Super Chevy Show, Spokane - Northwest Revival

After a 10-year hiatus, the Super Chevy Show series returned to the Pacific Northwest for some hot Bow Tie action.

By , Photography by The Authors

The halfway point of this year’s Super Chevy Show series, Spokane County Raceway, boasted one of the most interesting Super Chevy car shows to date. Co-author Calin Head and I both were impressed with the variety of cars to check out in the show field, which made choosing our Editor’s Choice show awards that much more difficult.

Along with a great car show, there was hot racing action on the quarter-mile, along with the twists and turns of the Toyo Tires–sponsored autocross course. The Spokane facility looked great, thanks to the hard work of track manager Cindy Gibbs (daughter of NHRA legend Steve Gibbs) and her crew. Spokane recently came under the leadership of Charlie Allen, who also runs Firebird Raceway in Phoenix and gained fame as the track manager of the late Orange County International Raceway in California (site of the first Super Chevy Sunday 30 years ago).

It was a great weekend for a show, and we ended up with more photos than we can publish here in the pages of Super Chevy. But check out for our bonus photo galleries for all the extras.
