The weather conditions weren’t conducive to sending high-horsepower Bowties down Royal Purple Raceway this weekend as persistent rain showers blanketed Houston. Regardless, that didn’t prevent us from having a packed show field with some primo vintage and late-model Chevy cars and trucks. Here’s the lowdown on who won their class and drove home with a trophy. Special thanks for all our sponsors and volunteers that made this event just as fun despite what Mother Nature threw at us.

Comments Off

Once again, the Super Chevy Show series presented by Chevrolet Performance continues to impress by kicking off the 10th of 12 Chevy powered weekends in 2012 with a Chevy Street Cruise from Ron Craft Chevrolet to Royal Purple Raceway.

Ron Craft Chevrolet is one of the top Chevrolet dealerships in the Houston area, and the number one selling dealership in Baytown, celebrating its thirty-second year in Baytown. This treasured dealership features world class customer service and sales of new and pre-owned Chevrolets.

A meet and greet will take place at Ron Craft Chevrolet (Interstate-10 East between John Martin Rd & Garth Rd.) from 8:00-9:15 a.m. while cruisers register and are invited to enjoy a complimentary breakfast.

The cruise will depart the dealership at 9:30am this Saturday morning and arrive via police escorts to Royal Purple Raceway at 10:00am.  The cruise will take approximately 25 minutes and travel roughly 20 miles through the Historic Downtown Baytown District and arrive at Royal Purple Raceway off of the Grand Parkway (SH 99) from the South. All participants will earn a FAST PASS into the Park and to the Car Show staging area for setup. This activity is open to all Chevy bodied or Chevy Powered vehicles (Includes all GM Brands, which means you can also cruise your Saab, Saturn, Hummer or even your Cadillac).

“This is the only way to open up our Super Chevy weekend for our sponsors, participants, and Chevy fans,” says Seth Angel, General Manager.  “This will be our third street cruise and every year it keeps getting bigger and better.  We anticipate hundreds of Chevy’s to participate in this year trip from the dealership, through Baytown and concluding at the racetrack.”

The cost to participate in the cruise is FREE and those participants who register for the Car Show and are a member of one of our host car clubs will receive a complimentary guest admission ticket for their passenger.

The Royal Purple Raceway Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance and Ron Craft Chevrolet will feature sportsman and professional drag racing, a car show, a car corral, swap meet and vendor midway displays. This event will highlight the Outlaw Fuel Altered big block Chevrolet Shootout as the main attraction.
