A car show featuring hundreds of the most iconic vehicles of the “Bow-tie” brand and a drag racing spectacular come together once again for the Bristol Chevy Show, Aug. 6-8 at legendary Bristol Dragway.

The popular Bristol Chevy Show, which returns to Thunder Valley for its 40th year, is known to showcase some of the most exciting bracket and exhibition racing in the region. The combination of the car show and Saturday night’s Pro Show makes the weekend an absolute must for any automotive and racing fan.

In the Pro Show, fans should prepare themselves for the ultimate evening of entertainment. With racing sessions scheduled for 6 and 8 p.m., fans will be amazed by some extremely fast machines, and will be provided with plenty of edge-of-your-seat excitement, including the wildly-entertaining Pro Mods and a Jet Funny Car vs Nitro Funny Car showdown.

The fan experience will be intensified when the Team FMX freestyle bikes soar high in the air to put an exclamation point on the evening of fun.

Attendees will have plenty to keep them busy throughout the weekend. Fans will get to see some of the best bracket racing in the country and a spectacular selection of some of the region's best classic and modern Chevrolets.
