LAS VEGAS (March 23, 2010) – Super Chevy Magazine writers and photographers were plenty busy this weekend. If they weren’t selecting the award winners for the Editor’s picks of the car show, they were shooting photos of the Autocross event or doing feature photo shoots with selected cars.

Needless to say, the Super Chevy Magazine is more involved with the Super Chevy Show series than ever before.

The Publisher of Super Chevy Magazine, Ed Zinke, wouldn’t have it any other way.

“We’re extremely excited to be part of the Super Chevy Show series and we plan to be involved with every race this season,” Zinke said. “We’re proud to be working with the new owners of the Super Chevy Show series on developing some new and exciting things for the series.

“I want to personally thank everyone that came out to join us this weekend. We were constantly surrounded by enthusiastic sponsors, racers, participants and fans.”

The 30th anniversary season of the Super Chevy Show series kicked off this weekend at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The all-Chevrolet weekend of drag racing, car show, swap meet, autocross and more will make its annual stop at the Texas Motorplex May 21-23.

A cruise with Super Chevy Magazine staffers for area Chevy car clubs is being organized for the morning of Saturday, May 22. Details will be announced soon.

“Super Chevy Magazine is a tremendously important part of the history of the Super Chevy Show series,” Texas Motorplex owner Billy Meyer said. “We wanted to get the Magazine staff involved from the beginning and it’s going to be a tremendous addition to the season.”

GLENDORA, Calif. (Feb. 17, 2010) — The National Hot Rod Association is pleased to announce the formation of the NHRA State Championship, a new special event program for its member tracks and E.T. Bracket racers beginning in the 2010 season. With member tracks across the country as well as in Canada and Puerto Rico, the program will recognize and award grassroots racers with a unique specially designed NHRA State Championship “Wally” plaque.

Much like State High School Athletic Associations that conduct state championships in various school sporting events, the NHRA will designate and recognize one annual event per state where NHRA member tracks are present as the official “NHRA State Drag Racing Championships.”

NHRA State Championship events will be held at Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, Ga., Sept. 5; Coles County Dragway USA in Charleston, Ill., July 12; Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wis., July 17; and at Kearney Raceway Park in Kearney, Nebr., July 31 and Aug. 1. Other state and province will be listed on the NHRA divisional Web sites and NHRA.com.

E.T. Bracket categories that are part of the NHRA Summit Racing Series and a Jr. Dragster class contested within the state and NHRA geographic division will receive “Official NHRA State Championship” designation.

The new program will join NHRA’s current National DRAGSTER Challenge, NHRA Aerospace Components King of the Track and NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Challenge line-up of special events.

Headquartered in Glendora, Calif., NHRA has 80,000 members and 140 member tracks nationwide. As the primary sanctioning body for the sport of drag racing in the United States, NHRA presents 23 national events featuring the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series and NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series. Two NHRA-sanctioned bracket racing series provide competition opportunities for drivers of all levels: the NHRA Summit Racing Series and the NHRA Drags: Street Legal Style presented by AAA. NHRA also offers the Jr. Drag Racing League for youth ages 8 to 17. In addition, NHRA owns and operates five racing facilities: Gainesville Raceway in Florida; Atlanta Dragway in Georgia; National Trail Raceway in Ohio; O’Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis; and Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Southern California. For more information, log on to NHRA.com, or visit the official NHRA pages on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

NHRA Announces Environmental Management Responsibility for All Participants

GLENDORA, Calif. (Feb. 15, 2010) – Recognizing the need to further protect the environment at racing venues, NHRA has announced a new environmental management policy for all NHRA events and/or facilities, effective at all NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events beginning with the NHRA Gatornationals, March 11-14.

The program involves three primary rules that must be followed regarding the use, possession and disposal of regulated waste. First and foremost, each participant must participate online in a mandatory training session regarding environmental uses as they relate to racing. The training presentation will be available on the National Event Registration website after logging into their account. Second, no halogenated or chlorinated brake cleaners may be used at NHRA events or facilities. And, finally, the responsibility of compliance with Federal, State and Local regulations belongs to the participant.

NHRA will post information provided by tracks on the national registration website when provided by the national event facilities.

NHRA intends to work with government entities, agencies and tracks to monitor and enforce the new environmental management program. Penalties, for non-compliance, will be assessed by NHRA, with a minimum $1,000 fine imposed for any violation.

The entire environmental management responsibility program as well as the training session will be posted on the registration website. When competitors log into their account, they will be required to complete the training and sign the agreement before they can complete the registration process.

Headquartered in Glendora, Calif., NHRA has 80,000 members and 140 member tracks nationwide. As the primary sanctioning body for the sport of drag racing in the United States, NHRA presents 23 national events featuring the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series and NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series.
