ROCKINGHAM, N.C. — After a 10-year hiatus, Rockingham Dragway will host a Super Chevy Show during the 2011 racing season.
“We had been looking for another national series we could bring to Rockingham Dragway,” said Steve Earwood, Rockingham Dragway owner. “The Super Chevy Show was the perfect fit, especially since it’s a known commodity.”
Slotted into the series schedule in the fall of 2011, the Super Chevy Show will join The Rock’s already strong fall program, joining the 20th annual AHDRA Jim McClure Nitro Nationals, the Lee’s Performance Fall Nationals and the ADRL’s Dragstock event featuring Pro Mods and Mountain Motor Pro Stock cars.
The official dates of the Rockingham Super Chevy Show will be announced Oct. 19 with the full release of the 2011 Super Chevy Show schedule.
“I have a long history with the Super Chevy Show,” Earwood said. “I was fortunate enough to have promoted the inaugural Super Chevy events at six different race tracks — The Rock, Indianapolis (O’Reilly Raceway Park), Maple Grove (Reading, Pa.), Texas Motorplex (Ennis, Texas), Atlanta Dragway and West Palm Beach (Palm Beach Int’l, formerly Moroso Motorsports Park).”
A typical Super Chevy Show program consists of drag racing in three bracket classes, the series’ signature Shoebox class and True Street, a Car Show, swap meet, car corral and an autocross. The show and the racing events are open only to Chevy-powered or Chevy-bodied cars and trucks.
“There’s a standard show,” Earwood said, “but one of the great things is that the track operators have some flexibility with regard to the races at their own tracks. So, we’ll put together a customized event that’ll be geared to our racers and spectators. It’s an exciting addition to our 2011 program.”
