The mid-eighties was the last time Auto Club Famoso Raceway hosted a Super Chevy Show and it’s triumphant return proved that the Series was missed in Central California. Racers arrived on Friday to the historic track to set up for Friday night Test & Tune and to be ready for Saturday morning’s first set of time trials, while car show participants registered early and set up an impromptu Show & Shine in the shady Grove behind the grandstands.

The autocross course was the chatter of the event from the Camaro5 Best of the West competition to see who’s Gen 5 Camaro was the quickest and fastest on the drag strip, autocross course and car show. The constant squealing tires maneuvering around the cones drew spectators watching from the concrete barriers ready to give it a try themselves. Then the crew competed in the Brake Stop Challenge as a part of the Super Chevy Magazine Triathlon, the racer that reached the timing box first and stopped the quickest without going out of the box was quite a competition to watch. The racer that took home the bragging rights in the Brake Stop Challenge also won the Gen 5 Challenge, Fred Lomax of Los Angeles California took home a lot of hardware from the Super Chevy Show and the Camaro5 Best of the West, as the top scorer.

Competitors in the Super Chevy Magazine Triathlon combined the fastest ET in drag racing, best autocross course time and best time in the brake stop challenge, with the King of the Hill award going to Haddad Racing’s Mike Haddad of Englewood California.

jim-lipperts-67-ls9-powered-nova-will-be-at-the-super-chevy-show-atThe car show’s Best of Show award was won by Super Chevy Show veteran Jim Lippert of Green Kansas with his famed 1967 Nova that graced the cover of Super Chevy Magazine’s May 2013 issue, and has been featured in many of the Amsoil Best of the Best competitions on the magazine’s website. Just like Jim Lippert there are names in the results that appear over and over like Kay Bice and her mint 1967 Camaro that won Saturday’s Outstanding Engine award and Sunday’s First Place in Camaro 1967-1969 Modified and Best in Class awards. The Super Chevy Show, Super Chevy Magazine and the race tracks truly appreciate all who participate in every event or we wouldn’t have anything to write about from late March to late October. We are lucky that many of our participants in the car show, the racer pits and local fans are friends that we look forward to seeing event-after-event, friends that we look forward to seeing year-after-year and all our participants and spectators. We can’t wait to get to know you in the shady Grove in 2014 and all the other Super Chevy Shows.

Car Show Shines at Virginia Motorsports Park

Comments Off

Despite the soggy weekend, the car show was the star of the Virginia Motorsports Park Super Chevy Show on May 17 – 19. The best Tri-Fives in the region came out to participate in the Danchuck Tri-Five Reunion, that left the car show judges dreaming about the ’55-’56-’57 class for days afterward. The rest of the Chevys stayed parked in solidarity through the sprinkles and rain for the weekend, making the car show the place to be.

The constant rain kept the drag strip quiet a big part of the weekend, but there were a few breaks in the clouds and racing was able to get underway for a few rounds on the track, giving Jeff Brady of Yorktown, Va., the title for the Gen 5 Challenge. Though only several rounds were contested on the strip, they were enough to produce this year’s Aeromotive Eliminator winners from Round 1 of Bracket 1 and Bracket 2 classes, which went to Eddie Smith of Richmond Va., and Melony Robinson of Hanover Penn., respectively for having the “best package” of best reaction time combined with closest to their dial-ins.
