Petersburg, Va. (April 7) – The Super Chevy Show is kind of like the carnival of motor sports – it offers a little bit of everything for everyone. Whether you like sportsman or pro-class drag racing, an eye-pleasing car show, or the ever-popular swap meet, this event is for you. It’s also a national touring series with regional flavor, and that will be evident when the Super Chevy Show makes its first East Coast stop of the season, visiting Virginia Motorsports Park (VMP) on Saturday, April 17 and Sunday, April 18.
The weekend’s highlights include the Nitro Xtreme Doorslammers, Jet Funny Cars, ProMod Corvettes and four bracket racing classes. Car show enthusiasts will be in heaven as VMP traditionally attracts one of the largest entry lists on the 10-race Super Chevy Show Series. Racing and car show fans will also be treated to one of the largest vendor swap meets on the tour.
Participating Merchant’s Tire Stores, presenting sponsor of the Virginia Super Chevy Show, are offering discount coupons good for $5 off any single-day spectator admission, or half price full-event tickets. Virginia Motorsports Park and local General Motors car dealers are also providing a $20 discount for passengers of car show participants. One passenger with each car show participant will be able to buy a weekend pass for only $12. It’s the first time the track has offered such a discount, and it is expected to provide the Virginia Super Chevy Show with one of the largest car show turnouts in recent event history.
One of the series’ biggest attractions is the car show, which features multiple categories and classes from classic to contemporary, and modified to custom. This being the first East Coast stop, a large contingent of entrants are expected.
“The Virginia event is always one of the most-well attended car show events on the series tour and has a high caliber of cars to be judged every year,” said Super Chevy Show car show coordinator Andy Hendricks. “They come from all over the East Coast, as far as Florida in the South, and Maine in the North.

Petersburg, Va. (April 1) – Drag racing, from its inception, has always been about power. It has always been about going as quick and as fast as possible, with the only consideration being what can a car do on the drag strip. That will change a bit when the Super Chevy Show, which is celebrating its 30th season, visits Virginia Motorsports Park from April 16-18.
Organizers of the series have a unique class that balances the raw power of drag racing with the average passenger car. It’s called True Street, and promises to be a crowd-pleaser when the class makes its season debut at VMP.
