Super Chevy Show Set For 30th Annual Event In Thunder Valley
Fans of the Bowtie Brigade unite during the 30th Annual Super Chevy Show at Bristol Dragway, September 24-26. For 30 years, the Super Chevy Show has been known for some of the most exciting bracket and exhibition racing in the country and this year is no different.
This season, the show gets even hotter as Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem presented by JanPak moves from its traditional May date to Saturday night, September 25.
Super Chevy Show’s extreme exhibition machines return to take part in Thunder Valley Mayhem on Saturday night. Ten Nitro Extreme Pro Mods, which also will make passes on Sunday, will square off in one of the wildest shows on four wheels.
During Saturday’s Thunder Valley Mayhem, fans not only will see the Pro Mods, they will be treated to lightning-fast passes by the Chattanooga Choo-Choo and Cannonball Express “jet trains.” Crowd-favorite Tranasaurus will show up to tear trashed cars to shreds, while Benny the Bomb returns to show fans he isn’t afraid to go head-to-head with pure dynamite. Les Shockley will bring his Super Shockwave jet truck to scorch the strip in Thunder Valley.
Throw in action from the Team FMX Freestyle motorcycles on Saturday night and a spectacular fireworks show, and Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem is the perfect addition to the 30th Annual Super Chevy Show.
Thunder Valley Mayhem exhibition runs will take place at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, while the Pro Mods will run again on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Those in attendance will have plenty of activities to keep them busy all weekend. Bracket racers will flock to Thunder Valley to take part in exciting racing action in Bracket 1 (Super Pro), Bracket 2 (Pro), DOT and True Street.
Fans also will get to see a spectacular selection of some of the region’s best classic and modern Chevys at the Keisler Engineering car show. Chevy die-hards will be impressed with the attention to detail given to these show machines. Super Chevy car shows are the ultimate in Chevy car shows. Bowtie fans will not want to miss it.
The National Corvette Museum will be on site, along with several other vendors. Officials with Super Chevy Show will judge the car show and present awards at 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. A car show judging seminar will take place Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
Anyone interested in locating new products for their restoration project will want to visit the Performance & Restoration Marketplace. If that hard-to-find used part is nowhere to be found, the car corral and used parts swap meet is definitely the place to go.
For extreme excitement and entertainment, the Super Chevy Show and Fas Mart Thunder Valley Mayhem are just the ticket.
