RACE CLASSES & PURSES
The Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance made its third stop at the historic Texas Motorplex, May 3 – 4, in a whirlwind of all things-Chevy. Enthusiasts, racers and car show participants, make Texas Motorplex one of the most popular destinations for the Chevy-faithful on the Super Chevy Show tour.
In addition to fierce competition on the drag strip and in the car show, the autocross course was a hit with racers looking to test their skill and their cars’ agility through a solo course of cones. The activity was sponsored by North Texas Camaro Club members Frank Manzare of Statewide Remodeling and Jay Deluca of Monarch Sales Advisors, to give the North Texas Super Chevy Show another activity for Chevy enthusiasts to take part in.
The 2013 Drag Race and Car Show Winners are the newest additions to the history of Texas Motorplex!
