It’s that time of the year again for the Original Super Chevy Show series to launch for the 2017 season. The first, and biggest, event of the eight-show-season is at Memphis International Raceway and if Friday’s crowd is any indicator this place is going to be packed tomorrow. Also, you might have noticed we said 8 shows this year, that’s two more than 2016 and shows there’s a demand for events where Chevy fans can show off and race their rides.
Typically, since most Chevy owners are working folk, Friday is rather lite, but there were a surprising number of racers on hand to take advantage of the chance to test-and-tune their cars. All the racing this weekend will be 1/8th mile with the exception of the DOT class cars which will run the full 1320. There’s a ton of cash, and trophies, up for grab in the various bracket classes, so getting in some practice runs can really payoff when the real racing starts tomorrow.
In addition to all the drag action there’s a whole parking lot teaming with polished up show cars trying to take home a trophy, and if they’re really lucky a Super Chevy Show jacket! There’s also a vendor midway showing off shiny new parts (including a ton of badass parts and cars on display at the Chevrolet Performance booth) and a huge automotive swap meet where everything from hub caps to projects cars can be bought. For spectators there’s a ton of racing and car show action to check out along with exhibition runs by wheel standers and jet cars.
So, if you’re in the Memphis area then come out, and check out, all the hot Chevy action. Looks like the weather is going to great and the racing fast!
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 April 21-22nd at Palm Beach International Raceway in Palm Beach, Florida and as always it will have a car show, drag racing, exhibition cars, and a swap meet.
