The Manufacturers Series is proud to announce Gibtec Pistons as a new sponsor of the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action events. Gibtec’s involvement will focus on product awareness for bracket racers, car show participants, and automotive enthusiasts attending each national touring series.
Gibtec manufactures custom pistons for all different types of competition vehicles. Opened for business just over one year ago, the company is based in Denver. In addition to selling custom pistons, Gibtec also works with the Big 3 motor companies on research and development at its state-of-the-art facility.
“What makes our company different is we’re more personalized than the bigger companies; we work one-on-one with each customer. We offer a more unique experience for customers who want that competitive edge to win,” said Rob Giebas, Gibtec General Manager. “We look forward to growing our brand and meeting race fans through the Manufacturers Series events in 2014.”
Each of the three series – Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford Weekend, and Mega Mopar Action series have combined to complete 6 of 33 total events this season, and have seen an increase in spectator and participant admissions.
“The Manufacturers Series is off to a very positive start for the year, and we are excited to add Gibtec Pistons to the family of sponsors” said Lex Dudas, President of the Manufacturers Series. “Gibtec is going to jump right in and be involved at our shows in Virginia, Texas, and Michigan this weekend.”
The Super Chevy Show hosts two events on the weekend of May 17-18, at Virginia Motorsports Park and Texas Motorplex, as well as a one-day Mega Mopar Action series event at US 131 Dragway, on Sunday, May 18.

REVELL® MAKE ‘N TAKE™ RETURNS TO MANUFACTURERS SERIES EVENTS, SUPER CHEVY SHOW AND FUN FORD WEEKEND IN 2014
Revell’s popular Make ‘n Take activity program returns to Manufacturers Series events Super Chevy Show and Fun Ford Weekend as an experience for kids and parents to celebrate family project time while making a model car together.
“Revell is proud of our continued partnership with Fun Ford Weekend that includes sponsoring the Revell Make ‘n Take where kids and parents can build a Revell scale model car and take it home that day,” said Rick Haas, Vice President of Merchandising for Revell.
The Chevy and Ford enthusiasts of today got started building model cars in their youth, and this is the place to involve the next generation to build, engage, and enjoy,” noted Haas.
Children and parents are invited to take part in the fun and free Make ‘n Take activity at noon each day in the Car Show Awards Tent along with model-building experts to build a SnapTite™ model Chevrolet or Ford vehicle courtesy of Revell.
“If someone were to ask me what my favorite part of the Manufacturers Series events are, the Revell Make ‘n Take would always be at the top of the list,” said Mfg. Series Director, Sara Griewing.
I love watching families interact and work together to build model cars, because by the end of the activity they leave with keepsakes. The children’s smiling faces show how proud they are of their accomplishments while the parents are just as excited. We hope the experience creates a life-long hobby for both to enjoy long after the Super Chevy Show or Fun Ford Weekend.”
