Bristol Chevy Show

Bristol Chevy Show

Thursday, September 26 - Sunday, September 29, 2019

Thunder Valley historically hosts one of the largest Chevy Shows on the calendar. For more than 30 years, the Bristol Chevy Show has been known for some of the most exciting bracket and exhibition racing in the country and this year is no different. Add the Thunder Valley Mayhem on Saturday night and this show is a can’t-miss event.

At Thunder Valley Mayhem, fans should prepare themselves for the ultimate evening of entertainment, including fast machines, extreme thrills and edge-of-your-seat excitement, including: Pro Mods, Jet Cars, fireworks and more!

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 Chevrolets. Chevy die-hards will be impressed with the attention to detail given to these show machines. The Bristol Chevy car show is one of the biggest and best Chevy car shows around. Bowtie fans will not want to miss it.

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 Bristol Chevy Show and Thunder Valley Mayhem is the place to go.
