The exclusive Super Chevy Show programming will include exciting segments designed to give the audience a view of the best Bowtie show cars in the country in stunning HD and a chance to relive the thrills while looking to spot familiar cars or catch a glimpse of Chevy drag racing at its best.

As the newest show on Velocity’s schedule, the Super Chevy Show joins the lineup with popular shows such as, Overhaulin’, Chasing Classic Cars and Restoration Garage, that set the bar for diverse programming within the automotive genre.
