May 18, 2016

The Super Chevy Show series has been going on for over 30 years now and 2016 kicked off with the event in Memphis, Tennessee. Great weather and a ton of cars brought out record crowds to indulge their love of all things Chevrolet. Memphis offered a lot to the spectators: car show, drag racing, exhibition runs, swap meet, and vendor area.

As always, there were a huge variety of race cars in attendance and since any car with a GM engine could run there were more than just Chevys in the staging lanes. That’s right, even Ford owners, provided they’re smart enough to stuff a Chevy engine under the hood, showed up to run at the event. Even a few Mopars were spotted lurking about.

Over 300 racers battled for glory and prize money on the track while the competition was equally as stiff on the car show side. The crowds filled the stands to watch the Pro Mods roar down the track and were then treated to exhibition runs by jet cars and one very cool wheelstander. This is the first of six events this summer and it was a great way to kick off the 2016 Super Chevy Show season!
