The national touring series, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary season, is at Bandimere Speedway near Denver this weekend and opened
MORRISON, Colo. (Aug. 17) — Do you own a late model or classic Chevrolet?
Then the Super Chevy Show has an offer for you.
The Bowtie Boulevard, a non-judged class, will make its debut at this weekend’s Denver Super Chevy Show presented by Stevinson Chevrolet at Bandimere Speedway.
The class, formerly known as Show-N-Shine, will provide Chevy car and truck owners the opportunity to display their automobiles in the show lot at each of the remaining events on the Super Chevy Show 30th Anniversary tour. The cost is $35 per entry, and will provide each driver the same access of a three-day full event ticket at a $5 savings.
The program will also be available during events at Baytown, Texas (Sept. 11-12); Bristol, Tenn. (Sept. 24-26) and Chandler, Ariz. (Oct. 22-24).
“The Bowtie Boulevard is something that really needs to be highlighted,” said Bandimere Speedway’s John “Sporty” Bandimere. “We see so many great Chevy’s sitting out in the parking lot during these event weekends, and want them to be highlighted for all of the fans inside the track to see, whether they are being judged or not.
“The Bowtie Boulevard is the spot for these great cars to be on display and provide VIP type access for their owners.”
The Bowtie Boulevard won’t be the only attraction to this weekend’s Denver Super Chevy Show. The event will also feature a car cruise from Denver to Bandimere Speedway in nearby Morrison.
The cruise, open to all Chevy bodied and powered vehicles will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 21 from Invesco Field at Mile High, which is home of the NFL’s Denver Broncos, and roll into Bandimere Speedway’s Thunder Mountain at about 8:30 a.m. The cruise will be led by Corvette Connection. Car cruises have been a big hit during other recent stops of the 10-race Super Chevy Show Series, including the season-opening event in Las Vegas.
This weekend’s event will also include sportsman and pro show drag racing.
