After successful 2011 and 2012 event seasons, RockAuto.com is continuing their support for the Manufacturers Series with an expanded commitment to the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend and Mega Mopar Action Series for 2013.
RockAuto’s 2012 support of the Manufacturers Series included promotional discounts offered on each Series Web Site for enthusiasts, participant promotions such as limited-edition magnets and postcards for the Super Chevy Show and Mega Mopar Action, plus reusable branded goodie bags for Fun Ford Weekend in 2012. In 2013 RockAuto will increase their partnership in the Mega Mopar Action Series by providing environment-friendly goodie bags for participants.
“RockAuto.com is happy to be able to sponsor the Super Chevy, Fun Ford and Mega Mopar Action events in 2013, said Jessa Torvik, Marketing Manager at RockAuto.com.
We enjoy helping our customers maintain, repair and restore both their classic cars and daily drivers. RockAuto’s selection of parts for newer cars is always expanding, but some people may not realize we regularly add new parts for old cars as well. For example, RockAuto recently began offering 100% new distributors to restore the ignition systems on many popular engines from the ’60s and ’70s.”
The Manufacturers Series is proud to have RockAuto.com as a renewed sponsor in 2013, and providing spectators and participants’ collector cars or daily driver on the road with OEM and aftermarket parts from RockAuto.com.

The Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance and Richmond County Tourism takes its nationwide celebration of the American Muscle Car to new extremes this week (October 19-21) in its annual return to Steve Earwood’s Rockingham Dragway.
In addition to all-things Chevrolet, from show cars to a swap meet to a vendor midway displaying all manner of bow-tie products and paraphernalia, the three-day extravaganza will feature the cars of the Extreme Outlaw Pro Modified series competing in the Beal Racing Engines Pro Mod Shootout.
Two-time former Super Chevy Series Pro Mod champion Charles Carpenter of Charlotte, driver of the world’s quickest and fastest 1955 Chevy; 1995 IHRA Pro Mod champion Tommy Mauney of the Shelby, S.C., Ed Hoover of Gilbert, S.C., winner of the first IHRA Pro Mod race ever contested; former IHRA Raiders Division Top Sportsman champion DeWayne Silance of Jacksonville; Kernersville’s Doug Winters, driver of the world’s fastest 1957 Chevy; and former NHRA Pro Mod tour regular Steve Vick of Mocksville are among the members of the bow-tie brigade expected to compete.
Among the others expected to line up for Saturday qualifying sessions at 12 noon, 2 p.m. and five p.m. will be the “Christine” Plymouth Fury of Mooresville’s Chris Cline, the supercharged 1941 Willys of Washington’s Kevin Mayer, the late model nitrous-boosted Ford Mustang of Mocksville’s Todd Howard and the supercharged 1972 Plymouth Duster of James Litton of Columbia, S.C.
“I just love those cars,” Earwood said, “and it’s been awhile since we’ve had Pro Mods of this caliber at The Rock. Anybody that’s ever seen them knows that they are the most challenging vehicles to get down a racetrack. They’re a great addition to the Super Chevy program everyone has been looking forward to since last year.”
A special 12 noon-to-7 p.m. test-and-tune for Super Chevy Show contestants will begin the program on Friday. Saturday’s pro qualifying will share center stage with GM-only Pro ET and Footbrake races and the first of two Junior Drag Racing events. Sunday, Pro ET drivers will compete for a $3,000 top prize in a DriveDuracell.com event starting at 10:30 a.m. Champions also will be crowned in Footbrake, Junior Dragster, DOT Street and Real Street.
For the Pro Mods, “last chance” qualifying will be conducted at 11 a.m. Sunday with single elimination finals beginning at 12:30 p.m. Show car awards will be presented on the main stage at 3 p.m.
General admission tickets for the Super Chevy Show are $20 daily or $35 for a weekend pass which includes Friday. Tickets for those 6-12 are $5 daily or $10 for the weekend, including Friday.
