MILLINGTON, TN, (March 18, 2013) – After a phenomenal return to the series in 2012 when Memphis International Raceway (MIR) hosted one of the largest Super Chevy Show event in the series, MIR is counting on Super Chevy Show fans and participants in the Mid-South to break last year’s historic records this April 12, 13 & 14 when The Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance makes a stop at Memphis International Raceway – Where the Racing Rocks.  “We can’t wait for the return of the Super Chevy Show to Memphis International Raceway.  It is the premiere national event for all Chevrolet enthusiasts.  I guarantee the family friendly event offers something for everyone,” said Pam Kendrick, Vice President and General Manager Memphis International Raceway.  “The attendance in 2012 was incredible, but we intend to break those attendance records this year.  Mark your calendars now for extraordinary drag racing, car show, swap meet and pro shows all Super Chevy style,” said Kendrick.

Festivities crank up at Memphis International Raceway on Thursday, April 11th with a Super Chevy Show Kick Off Party featuring Chevy vs. The World Test & Tune racing action.  If you have a Chevy, bring it out and see what it can do on MIR’s historic dragstrip.  If you are the proud owner of a Ford, Mopar or any other car you think can put a Chevy to shame, here’s your chance to prove it at MIR’s Chevy vs. The World Test & Tune.  At noon on Friday, the three-day car show starts with a Show & Shine Festival of Cars, with specialty awards on Saturday.  Sunday’s car show activities conclude with the coveted class awards. The midway featuring the best in new Chevy aftermarket performance parts and the gigantic swap meet for those hard-to-find restoration treasures will be open all weekend.  The drag racing action begins Friday night with Test & Tune racing action, the launch of the weekend’s Pro Mod and Mean Street qualifying runs plus the first look at one the most exciting Pro Shows you’ll ever see.  On Saturday, the 5th generation Camaros will go head-to-head in the CamaroGuys.com Gen 5 Challenge trophy class, and the True Street and Bonus Races. While all three days MIR will host the DriveDuracell.com Bracket 1, Bracket 2, R.T. Turbines D.O.T., R. T. Turbines Jr. Dragster and Run for the Money eliminations.

“The racing action will be intense with three days of Pro Mod and Mean Street Eliminations,” said Paul Cartwright Director of Operations at Memphis International Raceway.  MIR is thrilled to welcome back the crowd pleasing Pro Show attractions by Hanna Motorsports, with the Top Secret Jet Car driven by Ken Hall and Rich Hanna’s GOJO Firebird, Pontiac Jet Car, as well as the popular Super Winch Wheelstander, driven by Danny O’Day.
