Super Chevy Show Thunders into Gateway Motorsports Park

The second Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance at Gateway Motorsports Park made history with a thundering bang both Saturday and Sunday afternoon, but that didn’t stop the fans, racers and car show participants from joining in on the Chevy-powered or Chevy-bodied fun all weekend in between storms. Like Virginia Motorsports Park, the soggy weather made racing difficult but we were able to crown our Aeromotive Eliminator winners with the “best package” of combined best reaction time and closest to their dial-in. Jason Grams of St. Peters, Missouri in Round 1 of DriveDuracell.com Bracket 1 won a gift certificate for $200 to Aeromotive and Mark Probst of Teutopolis, Illinois won for Bracket 2 and took home the $200 gift certificate plus an extra $100 for already running Aeromotive equipment.

The car show in the oval track’s infield only slowed down for the rain and everyone was back at it on Sunday plus a lot of new cars for the judged show. Gateway’s newly acquired tram joined the large car show’s participants and fans in the oval track’s infield to drag racing and pit-side midway both Saturday and Sunday until the unexpected 70 mph winds and rain interrupted the excitement. Race fans took cover under the new pavilion in the concession area while the big open garage was refuge for the cherry cars, owners and fans as they waited out the downpour, everyone was thankful for the cover in the infield that was set up for the awards ceremony, they even had a DJ for entertainment. Again, just like Virginia Motorsports Park the car show was the star of Gateway’s 2013 Super Chevy Show, while owners remained steadfast in competition with their displays. A big thanks to all those who came out to participate and watch in-between the Midwest summer storms, we’re already planning 2014.
