Super Chevy Show - Bayton, Texax

Baytown Bow Ties

By , Photography by Team Super Chevy

Every so often, Mother Nature tries her best to keep a Super Chevy Show from happening. She will turn on the rain and laugh that we gearheads missed out on an opportunity to show off our rides. Such was the case for the 2012 Super Chevy Show held at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas. A pretty serious storm rolled over the track late on Friday, so Seth Angel, the track manager, made the decision to cancel the Saturday portion of the event, including the highly-anticipated cruise from Ron Craft Chevrolet.

The forecast was iffy at best for Sunday, but that was enough for the event to go on. A strong contingent of show cars made it onto the field, and the racing kicked off early. There was just enough good weather for us to complete our Editor's Choice picks, AMSOIL Best of the Best judging, and for the Super Chevy Show judges to do their jobs. Unfortunately, scattered showers made it too unsafe to race, so the decision was made to shut everything down. We hope Mother Nature decides to cooperate with us next year and provide sunny skies, because even though we love us some Chevys, we are not big on rain.
