WEATHERFORD DOMINATES AT WEATHER-PLAGUED SUPER CHEVY SHOW AT ROCKINGHAM DRAGWAY

Comments Off

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Veteran Randy Weatherford of Danville, Va., overcame weather, the apparent sabotage of the track’s timing system and Carmel, N.Y., rival Chris Rini Sunday to win the Extreme Outlaw Pro Modified title at the annual Super Chevy Show Presented by Chevrolet Performance at Steve Earwood’s Rockingham Dragway.

Weatherford, second in EOPM points entering the event, left as the leader after reigning series champ and No. 4 qualifier Danny “the Sheriff” Perry of Sims, N.C., was upset in the second round by Ed Burnley.

With Perry’s late model Chevy on the sidelines, Weatherford won a final round duel between the No. 1 and No. 2 qualifiers, getting past Rini in 3.825 seconds. Weatherford qualified No. 1 at 3.829 seconds and was quickest in every round at 3.826, 3.835, a best-of-the-event 3.819 to turn back Burnely and, finally, 3.825.

Rain that began early Saturday morning, coupled with the aforementioned timing system issues, forced Earwood to condense the two-day program that also included bracket racing, vendor displays, swap meet and car-and-truck show.

“Very disappointing,” said the track owner. “This is always one of our most popular events but the rain started at 5 a.m. Saturday and that pretty much killed the crowd. Then, when we got to the track, it was apparent that on Friday night some disturbed individual had made a mess of the timing equipment.

“Thank heaven for Van Billingsley (owner of Electronic Services Company) who was able to patch together something that would get us through the weekend. I have no idea as to the ‘who’ or the ‘why,’” Earwood said, “but I’m posting a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of whomever was responsible.

Other race winners were Derik Sholar of Holly Ridge, N.C., in Top Eliminator, Daniel Leggett of Lumberton, N.C., in Footbrake, Logan Brown of Bishopville, S.C., in Pro Junior Dragster, Jeff Brady of Hayes, Va., in the CamaroGuys.com Gen 5 Shootout and Jerry Cline of Mooresville, N.C., in DOT Tire.

Off the track, the 1962 Chevy Bel Air of Troutman’s Billy Moose was named “Best of Show” in judging by the members of the Southeastern GM Toyz Club.

ALL CHEVYS, ALL-THE-TIME AT ROCKINGHAM’S SUPER CHEVY SHOW

Comments Off

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. – Some of the world’s most exotic Chevrolets including vintage Corvairs and Impalas, tricked-out S-10 pick-ups and erratic Pro Modified Camaros and Corvettes converge on Rockingham Dragway Oct. 18-20 for the largest celebration of all things bow-tie, the annual Super Chevy Show, presented by Chevrolet Performance.

The world’s largest Chevy-specific event will include the Racing Junk.com swap meet, vendor midway, two full days of the FOAT (Fastest Of All Time) car and truck show, bracket racing in three different categories, exhibition runs by Tom Richey and the world’s fastest Chevy Astro van and a full complement of Extreme Pro Modifieds battling for bragging rights in the Beal Racing Engines Pro Mod Shootout.

“The Super Chevy Show has always been one of my favorites because you never quite know what to expect,” Earwood said.  “People love their Chevys but sometimes it’s hard to understand why they do what the do to them.  But it doesn’t make any difference; it’s always a good time.”

Tommy BrumleyThe Rock version of the popular international series will feature the Extreme Outlaw Pro Modifieds including the early model Camaros of Danny “the Sheriff” Perry from Sims, N.C., Dewayne “Hogfarmer” Silance of Jacksonville, N.C., and veteran Chris Rini of Carmel N.Y.

Perry, the 2012 EOPM Series champion and the current points leader, is hoping to become the “new Sheriff” at the Rock following the retirement of last year’s winner, veteran Ed Hoover of Gilbert, S.C.

Among the others expected to vie for the Pro Mod title are Greg Godwin of Walterboro, S.C., in his 1963 Corvette and Doug Winters of Kernersville, N.C., in his always popular 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

In addition to the Pro Mod action, former Rockingham Dragway track champion and IHRA national series winner Chip Johnson of Fayetteville, N.C., will try to repeat as the Top Eliminator champion in the bracket racing portion of the event at the controls of his venerable 1968 Camaro.

Top Eliminator, Footbrake and Jr. Dragster champions will be crowned on both Saturday and Sunday with a winner also crowned Sunday in a special DOT Street Tire event.  Sunday’s DriveDuracell.com Top Eliminator race will pay a $3,000 top prize.

New this year in the car show competition will be Top 10 awards in a special daily driver class for “working cars and trucks.” Super Chevy Pro Mod Andy Beal
