For Immediate Release

BAD WEATHER FORECAST POSTPONES SUPER CHEVY SHOW

 

MARTIN, MI – The renowned Super Chevy Show & Night of Thunder event scheduled for this weekend at US 131 Motorsports Park will be postponed. The threat of severe weather and significantly lower temperatures prompted the track officials to change the event date to September 12th and 13th.

 

Track manager Jason Peterson struggled making this decision and understands fan frustration. “With such a nice show planned and so many people traveling a good distance to attend this weekend, we feel that it is in the best interest for all to reschedule this event for later in the year.” Peterson went on to add, “More people than ever are making plans based on weather forecasts. It is unfortunate that our business is so reliant on not only the “real” weather, but also the forecasted weather.”

 

The plan is to now host the Super Chevy Show in conjunction with the famed Funny Car Nationals presented by Discount Tire event September 12th thru the 13th. The Funny Car Nationals event already has a great show lined up with Nostalgia Nitro Funny Cars. A good portion of the Night of Thunder event will also be in attendance at this rescheduled event such as the Nitro Fuel Altereds and fan favorite Bob Motz the “King of Quake” in his Jet-powered Kenworth.

 

All tickets purchased in advance of the May event will be honored on September 12 or 13.

Midwest Nostalgia Pro Stocks at US 131

Comments Off on Midwest Nostalgia Pro Stocks at US 131

The fastest nostalgia pro stocks in the country are set to invade “the fastest track in Michigan” – US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, MI – on May 29th and 30th to participate in the Super Chevy Show/Night of Thunder event. This will be the first time this group has visited this iconic race track.
Bill Neri, with his Warren Johnson ‘74 Camaro Mountain Motor tribute car, has been knocking on the door for his first 6 second pass in Nostalgia Pro Stock. Bill tells everyone that he has always loved the Super Chevy Show and believes that US 131 is one of the best tracks in the country! Another first for the group will be the maiden voyage of “Jungle” George Kubis’ awesome “Billy the Kid”, Stepp 426 hemi-powered Arrow. I know it’s not a bow tie, but everyone likes a hemi-lenco car!
The rivalry between Mark “Grumpy” Pappas and Ted “The Patriot” Peters is at fever pitch. Mark told us, “I am pulling out all the stops. Whatever it takes to put Ted on the trailer.”
“Bring it on bow tie boy I am ready,” retorted Peters.
Chuck “Test Monkey” Weck will be in the house with his mountain motored, Team Strange Firebird. This is one very fast F-Body and Chuck always puts on a show.
Every Nostalgia Pro Stock event would not be complete without a Bill Jenkins car, so “Grumpy” fans will not be disappointed with Mike Ruth behind the wheel of the very popular Pappa’s Motorsports Grumpy’s Toy XVI ‘81 Camaro.
