(May 29, 2012) AIRAID Filter Company announced today that it has joined the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action Series as a sponsor.  AIRAID, a manufacturer of cold air intake systems and performance filters for daily driven gas and diesel vehicles, muscle cars, and street machines is using the promotion to reach automotive enthusiasts of the popular domestic vehicle brands.

AIRAID’s participation in the three Series will begin with the Mega Mopar Action Series event at Bandimere Speedway in Denver, CO on Sunday, June 3.  Bandimere Speedway, along with Maple Grove Raceway, Texas Motorplex, Bristol Dragway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Virginia Motorsports Park, Royal Purple Raceway, Castrol Raceway, Rockingham Dragway, Palm Beach International Raceway, Memphis International Raceway, and Gateway Motorsports Park own and operate all of the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action Series events.

David Edelman, Online and Event Marketing Manager for AIRAID said the Series provides a great fit for their customer base.  “We have applications for basically every type of vehicle you see at a Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend or Mega Mopar Action Series event.  Every day we are selling air intake systems and performance filters to owners of cars and trucks wanting more horsepower and increased fuel efficiency,” said Edelman.   “Whether it is a participant in the car show that drove their car to the event to be judged for awards, or someone running in one of the bracket racing classes, our products offer a very cost effective and simple installation process to give them an advantage.”

In the month of June, fans of each of the “big-three” branded popular car show and drag race Series will see AIRAID promotions beginning at Denver, then moving to Maple Grove Raceway’s Mega Mopar Action Series event June 9-10; Virginia Motorsports Park Fun Ford Weekend, June 15-17; Gateway Motorsports Park Super Chevy Show, June 22-24; Bandimere Speedway Fun Ford Weekend, June 23-24; Bristol Dragway Fun Ford Weekend, June 29-30.  Another fourteen Series events will take place in the U.S. and Canada from July through October.

Maple Grove Raceway track operator and president of the Super Chevy Show series, Lex Dudas, as well as the other track operators are excited to have AIRAID get involved in all three series.  “I think AIRAID joining the Series events in a testament to the great shows we have already had this year.  Outside of some weather at a few events, our shows have been growing ever since the tracks took over leadership in 2010.  Our car counts for car show, drag race, and swap meet are up across the board for the Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend series, and the Mega Mopar Action Series just kicked off two weeks ago with a great event at the Texas Motorplex” said Dudas. “We can create a tremendous amount of exposure for AIRAID Filter Company and look forward to promoting their brand at all of our shows this season.”

The fourth stop on the Super Chevy Show series tour lands at Virginia Motorsports Park, May 18 – 20, 2012 with a Chevrolet-packed weekend of early-summer fun for all Chevy motorsports fans.

“The staff here at Virginia Motorsports Park really gets excited when the Super Chevy Show rolls into Virginia. It is something really special for us,” said Bryan Pierce, Virginia Motorsports Park General Manager. “Where else can you revisit Chevrolet’s rich history and be the first to see what’s new coming from Detroit all in one place!”

Car Show participants and fans will enjoy the two-day judged Car Show and non-judged Show & Shine with specialty awards on Saturday and class awards on Sunday with a weekend wrap up on Sunday evening with the Best of Show Parade at 5:00 pm. In addition, Car Clubs with 10 or member participants can call the track directly for an advance purchase discount at (804) 862-3174.

The drag strip will be busy all weekend long with Chevy-Bodied or Chevy-Powered rods, beginning Friday at 2:00 pm with the Racer Test & Tune, Saturday and Sunday Bracket Races, the Camaro Rally and 4.90 Index Races. In addition, race fans can watch the Pro Mods and Jet Cars wreak havoc on the drag strip during the popular Pro Show twice on Saturday and Sunday.

The Super Chevy Show at Virginia Motorsports Park offers a little something for everyone, including the Swap Meet for those hard-to-find restoration pieces, Midway for aftermarket performance products and a Car Corral for that new project car. As well as the Revell Make ‘N Take activity for kids in the Car Show tent.

“The 2012 show will be one to remember.  In addition to the fabulous Car Show, huge Swap Meet, and wide open racing including 200 mph Pro Mods and 300 mph Jet Cars, this year’s event will showcase the legendary Camaro,” said Pierce. “We plan to have a Camaro from every production year represented plus extra Camaro vendors in the Midway.  We want every Camaro on the East Coast to join us in celebrating the iconic Chevrolet model.”
