MORRISON, Colo. (July 30) – For the participants, the Super Chevy Show is like a progressive slot machine – the payouts are plentiful.
The big draw for the national touring series, which this season is celebrating its 30th anniversary, is that competitors know they have a good shot at bringing home some hardware as each of the series’ 10 events produces close to 300 class winners among 40-plus categories, in addition to best of show, Super Chevy Magazine Editors’ Choice and specialty awards.
A big part of the Super Chevy Show’s ability to honor so many participants rests with U.S. Recognition, an award and embroidery company that will supply the awards for the winners at each of the upcoming races on the Super Chevy Show tour, including next month’s Denver Super Chevy Show, which is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 20-Sunday, Aug. 22 at Bandimere Speedway.
The upcoming event takes on added importance for U.S. Recognition, because it is based in nearby Lakewood, Colo. and already has a working relationship with Bandimere Speedway.
“We are proud to be providing the awards for the Super Chevy Show at Bandimere Speedway this year,” U.S. Recognition owner Brenda Gruninger said. “U.S. Recognition has designed unique custom awards, tee shirts, and event merchandise for many local and national car shows, as well as race events throughout the years. Being car enthusiasts, we are excited to have the Super Chevy show back at our home track.”
U.S. Recognition provides awards and outfits for several business, including sporting events and teams throughout the country. Bandimere Speedway is one of the company’s biggest clients.
“While we continue to be the official supplier for Bandimere Speedway, we also pride ourselves on creating awards and products for corporate functions, sporting events as well as any personalized recognition need you might have,” Gruninger said. “We offer worldwide service from a family business.”
But there will be extra pride at next month’s event.
“We are really happy to be involved with the Super Chevy Show,” Gruninger said.
The Denver Super Chevy Show presented by Stevinson Chevrolet will feature the car show, a swap meet and both sportsman and pro show racing. The highlights will include an appearance from the Six Second West Coast Outlaw Pro Mods, and a wheelstander. There will also be the Car Toys Aftershock Stage, which will provide round the clock entertainment.
