Manufacturers Series Expands to Phoenix and Oklahoma City Markets for the 2017 Season

The Manufacturers Series consisting of Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford, and Mega Mopar series events will expand its geographic footprint in 2017 by hosting events at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Phoenix, and Thunder Valley Raceway Park serving the Oklahoma City market.  At total of 29 event dates are already secured for the season that begins in April.  Many of the tracks hosting events have been a part of the series since it was established at the start of the 2010 season.   The eighth consecutive season for the Manufacturers Series will focus on popular car shows, drag racing, swap meet, and car corral activities for participants and fans alike.

An average of 1,000 participants per show compete at Manufacturers Series events for awards and prizes.  To many participants the prestige of winning their class in a car show or bracket race is the most rewarding.  For others it is about having the best restored show car or racing exhibition vehicle that gets aired on the Menards Chevy Series TV show.

Lex Dudas, President of the Manufacturers Series, is optimistic about the 2017 season for series participants, fans, and sponsors.  “The Manufacturers Series has a very positive direction for 2017.  Our major sponsors including Duracell, RockAuto, Original Parts Group, and LMC Truck are all returning and we have new sponsors coming on board that will be announced soon.  Many companies want to be involved with the Manufacturers Series events and Menards Chevy Series TV Show because they receive impressions to thousands of participants and fans on-site, and then reach millions of viewers through the TV Show.

The Menards Chevy Series TV show airs Saturday mornings on the Velocity channel in the fourth quarter of each year at 9:30am EST.  An audience of more than 2 million viewers watched the recent 2016 episodes, with Nielsen ratings trending on a year-over-year increase from the previous season.
