Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action Series to Host 33 Events in 2013

Manufacturers Series Adds Bakersfield’s Auto Club Famoso Raceway to its List of Host Tracks

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (October 11, 2012) – The Manufacturers Series, as they are collectively known, consists of the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action events touring the U.S. and Canada each season.  The popular events feature car show, drag race, swap meet, car corral, and autocross (at selected events) as the elements that bring thousands of fans and participants out to the shows.

In addition to hosting an increased amount of events in 2013, the Manufacturers Series will also visit a new venue at Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield with all three name badges – Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action hosting events in California during the months of May, June, and October respectively.

The Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance continues its journey to 12-North American venues in 2013, and is highlighted by a first ever “Doubleheader” when the series hosts two events on the September 27-29 weekend at Bristol Dragway and Royal Purple Raceway.   The Bowtie events begin the 2013 season at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, FL on March 22-24, and conclude at Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, NC on October 18-20.

Fun Ford Weekend events kick-off the season on the same weekend as its Chevy counterpart, but in a different warm weather climate at the Houston’s Royal Purple Raceway on Saturday, March 23.  From there, the series will head west to California for its new event at Bakersfield’s Auto Club Famoso Raceway on May 4-5, and work its way through the season ending event at Palm Beach Int’l. Raceway in Jupiter, FL on September 13-14.

The Mega Mopar Action series has shown the largest growth for the 2013 season, adding five new tracks to the name sake series of Mopar Action Magazine.   New markets for the Mega Mopar Action series include the season opener at Rockingham Dragway on April 6, followed by visits to St. Louis, Edmonton, Palm Beach, and the season ending event at Bakersfield on October 5-6.

We purchased our 2010 Chevy Camaro 2SS/RS “Khaoss” in August 2009. She is my daily driver with just over 65,000 miles now. In 2011 we started the modifications and her own website www.khaoss2010.com. She was featured car of the month for March in a local blog Houston Streets and also March 2012 Camaro of the month for the H-Town Camaro Club annual calendar. We’ve been participating in cars shows for about a year and have been able to bring home a good amount of awards. This year we were able to participate in our first Super Chevy car show at Royal Purple Raceway with the H-Town Camaro club and brought home a class winner award. This wasn’t our first class winner award received, but was definitely a special one for us. We hope that next year she will be able to retire as a garage queen and spend the rest of her time showing herself off at shows. We can’t wait for next years Super Chevy Show!
