JUPITER, Fla., (January 21, 2013) – Though winter is in full-swing for most of the country, Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR) is heating up by planning the Super Chevy Show season opener scheduled for March 22 – 24, 2013.

Drag racing fans will fill the stands to watch the bracket racing action, from the DriveDuracell.com Bracket 1 race to the CamaroGuys.com Gen 5 Challenge at the first Super Chevy Show of 2013. Chevy Car show enthusiasts can check out the judged and non-judged car show entries, while the autocross participants compete and test their agility against the clock and cones for their personal best of the course.

Participants and fans can shop the manufacturers midway for new aftermarket performance parts or the swap meet for those hard-to-find restoration treasures. Kids are encouraged to join in the fun with the popular Revell Make ‘N Take model building program in the Car Show Awards Tent each day.

Car show participant perks include, 5th generation Camaros are welcome to join in the drag racing fun and participate in the CamaroGuys.com Gen 5 Challenge, trophy class on Saturday to see who’s got the fastest 5th gen. on the property. While all car show participants are encouraged to test their skill and agility on the autocross course that’s included in the two-day car show entry fee. In addition, car clubs entering the car show by March 15, can save $10 on each judged entry with 10 or more, and $15 with 20 or more!

In addition, the event will include Pro Mod Eliminations and special Pro Show attractions by SDI Motorsports’ Heat Wave Jet Car driven by Sam Ives, as well as the popular Super Winch Wheelstander, driven by Danny O’Day and Chevy Rebellion, driven by Richard Hutchins.

“We are proud that Palm Beach International Raceway is hosting the season opener of the Super Chevy Show again for the third year in a row in 2013, making South Florida the premier early-spring destination for Chevy-powered or Chevy-bodied activities,” noted Jason Rittenberry, President of Palm Beach International Raceway.
