Friday’s test-and-tune session was history so it was time for Saturday’s main event at the 2017 Original Super Chevy Show in Cordova, Illinois. The weather was great so that meant the turnout was strong for the fourth event of the 2017 season. As with all Super Chevy events this one combined car show and drag race action into one Chevy fueled festival of coolness.
On the car show side competition was tough for a trophy or maybe one of the newly-reintroduced Super Chevy jackets. Also, we’re happy to announce that National Parts Depot (NPD) is now sponsoring a best restored class which was won by Richard Brewer and his stunning blue 1957 convertible. This class will be at all of the remaining Super Chevy events this year! Chevrolet Performance was also on hand to show off some of their new car and performance parts options.
The rumor of a lot of nostalgia pro-stock cars showing up proved to be true with two large contingents on hand. These cars were super cool in their day, and they still are! On the drag strip the bracket competitors slugged it out for a slice of the prize money pie and track shutdowns due to “issues” were few and far between. It made for a great day of racing that the spectators certainly enjoyed. Another staple of the Super Chevy shows are the exhibition cars which included a wheel stander as well as a couple of flame spewing jet cars!
So what is the Original Super Chevy Show? Well, if you’re a Chevy fan it’s an event you don’t want to miss! The next Super Chevy show will take place July 28th-29th at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio, and as always it will have a car show, drag racing, exhibition cars, and a swap meet. After that the show moves back into the area to National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio.
