Friday may have been for test-and-tune at the drag strip, but the main deal on Saturday was the Chevy-powered car show and hundreds of rides showed up to show off and try to take home a trophy, or maybe one of the sweet Super Chevy Show jackets being awarded. The weather was great at Rockingham Dragway (affectionately known as The Rock) which might be why some many really top-shelf cars were on hand.
While the car show was going on, the racers over at the drag strip were fighting through the brackets and trying to grab a piece of the prize money pie. For the spectators there was a vendor midway to check out in addition to the drag racing and the National Parts Depot (NPD) sponsored car show. Also, at each show NPD picks their favorite restored ride; this time it was Bob Satterfield’s numbers-matching 1970 Chevelle SS. The gold A-body has been with Bob for over 30 years. In fact he had it as a kid and amassed a huge collection of tickets. The day ended with a roar as two jet cars blasted down the drag strip.
So what is the 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 October 13-14th at the Tucson Dragway in Tucson, Arizona, and as always it will have a car show, drag racing, exhibition cars, and a swap meet. Tucson is the last of the expanded eight shows this season, to find out what’s in store for 2018 be sure to check superchevy.com for updates.
