The late Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins was not only a master engine builder and drag racing legend, but he also helped build the Chevrolet brand as one to beat in motorsports.

Jenkins, who died in March at 81, was scheduled to take part in this year’s Super Chevy Show on July 20-22 at Maple Grove Raceway as a special car show judge. He was going to pick his top 25 picks from the hundreds of entries.

However, his spirit will be present through the weekend. A special “Jenkins Competition” award will be presented after time trials Saturday, July 21, to the door/body car that has the lowest elapsed time during the second round of time trials.

And at the car show Jenkins Competition will be represented by company general manager Jake Barbato, and former NHRA world champion Larry Lombardo who drove for Jenkins in the 70s. The two will make the top 25 picks on Saturday.

The Super Chevy Show gets underway on Friday, July 20 with a 7 a.m. opening and time trials from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gates open Saturday at 7 a.m. with racing beginning at 8:30 and the car show going through the day until awards are presented at 3:30 p.m. Feature shows, with jet cars are at 1 and 4 p.m.

Sunday’s gates open at 8 a.m. with racing continuing at 9:30 and feature shows at 1, 2:30 and 4:30. Car show awards are at 4 p.m.

For over 50 years, Maple Grove Raceway has been a hotbed of drag racing action in the Northeast. With the Super Chevy Show coming up the weekend of July 20-22, that tradition continues as the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association will be tearing it up with their 240 mph sub five second passes down the quarter-mile.

Maple Grove’s stop has historically been the largest of all Super Chevy Shows on the tour in both attendance and participation and this year’s season is bound to be a record-breaker.

“Maple Grove is very proud to host the largest show on the national tour. The event has been well supported each and every year with over 650 race entries, 425 car show entries and over 250 swap meet entries,” said Maple Grove Raceway vice president and general manager Lex Dudas. “2012 marks the 50th anniversary of Maple Grove Raceway and the 26th time we have held a Super Chevy Show. We know the support we receive from our loyal Super Chevy customers has played a very large part in making Maple Grove Raceway what it is today.”

The Original Parts Group Inc. will be the presenting Sponsor of Maple Grove’s Super Chevy Show and is also celebrating a milestone this year, as it’s their 30th Anniversary of providing high-quality restoration parts for iconic GM musclecars. Their sponsorship will include a special car show plaque during the Class Awards ceremony for the Best “Chevy A-Body” Restoration of the Show.
