Super Chevy Show and Beef 'O' Brady's Thunder Valley Mayhem bring the rumble
One of the largest Chevrolet car shows in the nation once again collides with a drag racing spectacular when the Super Chevy Show arrives at Bristol Dragway Sept. 8-10.
The popular Super Chevy Show, which arrives at Thunder Valley for the 37th consecutive 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, Sept. 9's Beef 'O' Brady's Thunder Valley Mayhem makes the weekend an absolute must for any automotive and racing fan.
"The Super Chevy Show at Thunder Valley remains the most popular event of its kind east of the Mississippi," said Julie Bennett, vice president of Bristol Dragway. "With more than 200 swap meet vendors, 200 show cars and 400 race cars, it is the premier event for super-loyal Chevy devotees. The entire weekend provides a great entertainment value to any hot-rodding enthusiast."
At Saturday's Beef O'Brady's Thunder Valley Mayhem, guests should prepare themselves for the ultimate family evening of entertainment. With racing sessions scheduled for 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., fans will be amazed by some extremely quick machines, and be provided with plenty of edge-of-your-seat excitement. Several of the nation's coolest Pro Mods and Jet Cars will provide fast racing action on the dragstrip.
The fan experience will be intensified when the Team FMX freestyle bikes soar high in the sky, the monster truck robot pair of Reptar and Galactron will duel it out and a spectacular fireworks display lights up the sky to put an exclamation point on the evening of fun.
Attendees will have plenty of activities 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. The faithful Chevy bow-tie brigade will be impressed with the attention to detail given to these show machines.
Anyone interested in locating new products for their restoration project should visit the performance and 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.
