PETERSBURG, VA. (April 16) – The Super Chevy Show at Virginia Motorsports Park got off to a roaring start Friday.

It included 128 competitors who showed up for Friday’s Test and Tune session and 40 vendors and 231 spots for the ever-popular swap meet. A big draw to this weekend’s event also will come from the Pennzoil “Feel the Clean” Tour Display; the GM Performance Division Display and the TREMEC Display.

We're looking forward to a great weekend for Virginia Motorsports Park and the 30th anniversary of the Super Chevy Show.
“(It was a) great start to the new Super Chevy Show,” said VMP general manager Bryan Pierce. “There is definitely a buzz in Virginia and the surrounding area about the series and the new ownership group. It shows in the numbers. Our car show, swap meet, and racer counts are all up from last year after day one and are expected to continue to grow throughout the rest of the event weekend. We’re looking forward to a great weekend for Virginia Motorsports Park and the 30th anniversary of the Super Chevy Show.”

Here’s a brief report about Friday’s activities:

Test and Tune: 128 competitors showed up for Friday’s session, with Randy Perkinson setting the pace. Perkinson drove his 2009 Pontiac GXP through the quartermile in 7.388 seconds at 183.56 mph.
