12 Super Chevy Show Stops In 2011
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The 2011 Super Chevy Show schedule features 12 events, including stops at four new facilities and an international visit to Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta.
The national touring series, which celebrated its 30th anniversary this season with events in the Southwest, Midwest, South and Northeast, will broaden its reach in 2011. The series will host races at Palm Beach Int’l Raceway in Jupiter, Fla., Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, N.C., Spokane County Raceway in Spokane, Wash. and Castrol Raceway.
“The 2011 Super Chevy Show schedule greatly expands the footprint of the series for fans, participants, and sponsors, now reaching down to Florida, and up into Canada,” said SCSW Board Member Billy Meyer, whose Texas Motorplex track will host an event on June 3-5. “Three of the series largest events this season were based near the East Coast, so we want to make sure we are reaching as many fans out there that want to participate, and we think that Rockingham will continue the growth in North Carolina.”
The big highlight for the 2011 schedule is the stop at Castrol Raceway, which will be part of a back-to-back stretch in late August and early September. The event at Spokane County Raceway is scheduled for Aug. 26-28 and will be followed one weekend later by the Castrol Raceway event, slated for Sept. 2-4.
“Castrol Raceway is a tremendous facility,” said Rob Reeves, Castrol Raceway managing partner. “We currently host major events, ranging from the World of Outlaws, to one of the largest IHRA events on the tour. Bringing the Super Chevy Show to Castrol Raceway is a great way for U.S. fans to come up and see the beauty of Canada, and for our local audience of two million residents in Edmonton to get to see what the Super Chevy Show is all about.”
All events for the 2011 season will feature a Friday vendor set-up and a racer test-n-tune, with car shows, drag racing and swap meets on Saturdays and Sundays. The exception will be the event at Pennsylvania’s Maple Grove Raceway, which is scheduled to begin on a Thursday.
