MOHNTON, Pa. — The annual Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance and Original Parts Group (www.SuperChevyShow.com) took place over the weekend of July 11-13 at Maple Grove Raceway. The world-famous all-Chevrolet event included drag racing, an extensive car show, a swap meet and manufacturers midway. The event drew 917 Chevrolet products (Chevrolet cars or cars powered by Chevrolet engines) to the facility.

The feature show was headlined by four Jet Dragsters (MAVTV Missile, Lucas Oil Terminal Velocity, Queen of Diamonds II and Jersey Thunder) and TV and motion picture star Brett “Big Schwag” Wagner. Wagner chose his 10 favorite cars in the car show for special awards on Saturday.

Local drag racers Denny and Elise Renninger took home two car show awards in the Super Chevy Magazine – Top 10 Editors Choice – Race Car category. The Renningers compete in MGR’s Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail E.T. bracket racing series.

The three-day Chevrolet fest concluded at 6 p.m. Sunday with the final round of Pro Mod eliminations. Fredy Scriba of Millersville, Md., won the Pro Mod final on the starting line when opponent Frank Patille of Landerburg, Pa., fouled by only 1/1,000 second. To meet Patille in the finale of the 16-car Pro Mod field, Scriba defeated Ed Burnlay (Pasadena, Md.) in the first round, Vinny Budano (Hicksville, N.Y.) in the second round and Jeff Rodgers (Severn, Md.) in the semi-final.

William Gill of Langhorne, Pa., won the DriveDuracell.com Bracket 1 final over Brock Moshier of Lititz, Pa.

Scott Smoker of Kinzers, Pa., won the CamaroGuys Gen 5 Challenge presented by S&WRace Cars final when the car of opponent Tom Johnson of Newport News, Va., broke an axle on the starting line. Jill Canuso of S&W Race Cars — who also pilots the Queen of Diamonds II Jet Dragster — presented the trophy to Smoker.

The top two qualifiers in the Top Sportsman category faced each other in the final. No. 1 Qualifier John Prime of Thomaston, Ct., defeated Ronnie Proctor of Harpers Ferry, W.V.

Moment of Silence at Super Chevy Show for Sally Miksiewicz

We have lost a good friend.

Sally Miksiewicz was the CEO and vice chairperson of the East Penn Manufacturing Company.

Ms. Miksiewicz, 52, was killed June 20 when she was struck by a pickup truck while jogging near her home in Pike Township, Berks County.

East Penn, a family-owned company with more than 6,800 employees, is the second-largest employer in Berks County, where Maple Grove Raceway is located.

East Penn’s extensive product line includes Duracell auto batteries. Since 2011, Duracell (DriveDuracell.com) has been the Official Battery of the Super Chevy Show series.

It often was said she looked on East Penn’s employees as extended family. East Penn has been recognized for 13 consecutive years with the designation as one of the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania.

Thousands paid respects to Sally at a memorial service on June 27. The Super Chevy Show and Maple Grove Raceway will remember her with a moment of silence during the opening ceremonies of the event on July 13.
