KANSAS CITY (Feb. 25, 2010) — Total Cost Involved, Wilwood Disc Brakes, and Currie Enterprises have become official sponsors of the first ever Autocross to be held at a Super Chevy Show. Autocross, a designed road course where individual drivers compete for the best timed run based on skill and speed, has become very popular not only with the sports car crowd, but with muscle car enthusiasts as well. The featured race will help kick off the 30th anniversary Super Chevy Show season at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, March 19-21. Participants will be able to bring their Camaros, Chevelles, Corvettes and more to compete against each other to see who will take home the honor of being the quickest and fastest on the Autocross course.

Autocross is not new to Total Cost Involved Engineering of Ontario, California, a manufacturer of frames, chassis, front and rear suspensions, brake kits, engine and transmission mounts, springs, shocks and more for street rods, classic cars, muscle cars and trucks for 36 years. Total Cost Involved has a very competitive 1968 Camaro that they plan to have 11-time SCCA Autocross Champion, Mary Pozzi, drive for them at the Las Vegas event. Pozzi is providing input to the SCCA chapter organizing the autocross.

Super Chevy Show has introduced another cool segment to selected events this year, the Autocross
“Super Chevy Show has introduced another cool segment to selected events this year, the Autocross,” Pozzi said. “It’s a great opportunity for guys and gals to get off their lawn chairs and be a “Stig” while driving their own cars on the road course. If you choose to run the cones, you’ll end up a better driver knowing much more about your own car’s limits. Plan to be hooked, as you will want to experience more of this fun automotive sport. I hope to see everyone there and I can’t wait to have my way with Total Cost Involved’s red ’68 Camaro at the Las Vegas Super Chevy Show Autocross.”

Total Cost Involved Engineering component suppliers Wilwood Disc Brakes and Currie Enterprises also will be participating as they recognize the use of their products with autocross participants in muscle car and late model applications. Wilwood builds top-notch brake kits, calipers, pads, rotors, hubs, and master cylinders for street rod and muscle car applications that will be used on the autocross course. Currie Enterprises, is not new to the Super Chevy Show environment, as they have been involved with the series for a number of years, marketing their specialized automotive rear ends for Chevrolet makes and models.
