I have been a participant in every Super Chevy show at Virginia Motorsports Park from 1996 through 2010 and we are looking forward to racing there again this May. I purchased a 1967 Chevelle SS in the spring of 1996 as a project for my son Brandon and I to work on together. We took it to our first SC event that fall, ran in DOT and had a great time. We restored the car that winter and we came back to the event the following fall. We put the car in the car show and received a runner up award which we were very excited about. We showed the car again in 1998 but were itching to race again, so in 1999 we went back to racing in DOT and have run in every event since then.
About 10 years ago my daughter Julie started developing an interest in the car and racing so she started going to cruises with us and attending all of the races we went to. Now racing is a big family event with me, my kids and Brandon
I purchased my 1970 Chevelle SS in 1977 for $1,200, it was the second car I owned.
I did my own off the frame restoration on the Chevelle in 1997, in our 4 car garage. We went to car shows and got the Chevelle in the top of our class. Then we went to Super Chevy Show in Joliet IL, 200 miles one way, at the end of the show the judge told us where we lost points. The next year we won first place. We went to Super Chevy Show 5 or 6 times and took Class Winner ’70 and newer Stock in 2002 and 2006, placed 5 out of 6 times. The Chevelle is driven all the time, never trailered. The longest distance we drove to a show was 600 miles on way.
We enjoyed the Super Chevy Shows and miss not going. We want to go to Super Chevy Show in Ohio, but we got 27,700 miles on the Chevelle since 1997 and the interior shows ware and the engine compartment is not fresh. I am thinking of fixing that, so we can go enjoy Super Chevy Show again.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (March 8, 2011)- When it comes down to it, the Super Chevy Show series presented by GM Performance Division has the potential to spark mutually beneficial relationships between sponsors and drag racers. Because the series is owned by a group of drag racing tracks that hold events ranging from weekly bracket races to national events, the Super Chevy Shows are always packed with hundreds of racers.
Car counts at such events average more than 300 cars, with Maple Grove Raceway tipping the scales at over 650 racer entries in 2010. These large numbers of participating cars have grasped the attention of many major companies, causing them to become involved in the Super Chevy Show series contingency program.
The program provides an opportunity for product manufacturers to post product contingency awards in its top two bracket racing classes
