Super Chevy Show Discounts for Car Clubs Announced

Comments Off

ENNIS, Texas (March 29, 2010) – When the Super Chevy Show series was purchased by a group of track owners and racing enthusiasts in November, they have a vision of what a revamped series would look like: a sparkling sea of shiny Chevys in the car shows, the rumbling of Chevys on the drag strip and car enthusiasts walking the property with beaming looks of joy over being surrounded by the celebrated brand.

One way to make the Super Chevy Show at the Texas Motorplex, May 21-23, even better is to reach out to car clubs and make sure they represent the great state of Texas. Motorplex officials announced today that car clubs who pre-register 10 or more cars will get a serious discount on entry fees. Car clubs who register before May 1 also will get an exclusive speed pass to use at a special Speed Pass gate that will allow priority entrance into the event on Saturday, May 22.

“The Super Chevy Show is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2010 and we want this to be the best show it’s ever had in Texas,” Texas Motorplex General Manager Gabrielle Stevenson said. “There are so many car clubs and Chevy die-hards in this region, it’s fitting that we host such an exciting event. We want to offer a special price for the groups to help celebrate the anniversary and the return of such a premier event.”

Car club and groups of 10 or more cars who register together at TexasMotorplex.com before May 1 will get priority access at an exclusive Speed Pass gate and the discounted rate of $30 for the weekend pass. Groups and car clubs who register after May 1 will still be eligible for the discount, but will not get priority entrance.

Schedule and price information is listed below. There also will be specific classes for trucks on the drag strip and in car show judging. For more information, go online at www.texasmotorplex.com or call (972) 878-2641.

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.”
