SUPER CHEVY SHOW POWERSHIFTS ITS WAY TO VIRGINIA MOTORSPORTS PARK

The fourth stop on the Super Chevy Show series tour lands at Virginia Motorsports Park, May 18 – 20, 2012 with a Chevrolet-packed weekend of early-summer fun for all Chevy motorsports fans.

“The staff here at Virginia Motorsports Park really gets excited when the Super Chevy Show rolls into Virginia. It is something really special for us,” said Bryan Pierce, Virginia Motorsports Park General Manager. “Where else can you revisit Chevrolet’s rich history and be the first to see what’s new coming from Detroit all in one place!”

Car Show participants and fans will enjoy the two-day judged Car Show and non-judged Show & Shine with specialty awards on Saturday and class awards on Sunday with a weekend wrap up on Sunday evening with the Best of Show Parade at 5:00 pm. In addition, Car Clubs with 10 or member participants can call the track directly for an advance purchase discount at (804) 862-3174.

The drag strip will be busy all weekend long with Chevy-Bodied or Chevy-Powered rods, beginning Friday at 2:00 pm with the Racer Test & Tune, Saturday and Sunday Bracket Races, the Camaro Rally and 4.90 Index Races. In addition, race fans can watch the Pro Mods and Jet Cars wreak havoc on the drag strip during the popular Pro Show twice on Saturday and Sunday.

The Super Chevy Show at Virginia Motorsports Park offers a little something for everyone, including the Swap Meet for those hard-to-find restoration pieces, Midway for aftermarket performance products and a Car Corral for that new project car. As well as the Revell Make ‘N Take activity for kids in the Car Show tent.

“The 2012 show will be one to remember.  In addition to the fabulous Car Show, huge Swap Meet, and wide open racing including 200 mph Pro Mods and 300 mph Jet Cars, this year’s event will showcase the legendary Camaro,” said Pierce. “We plan to have a Camaro from every production year represented plus extra Camaro vendors in the Midway.  We want every Camaro on the East Coast to join us in celebrating the iconic Chevrolet model.”
