The annual Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance at Memphis International Raceway (MIR) brought out over 30,000 fans to celebrate all things Chevrolet. The show offered something for everyone with car shows, drag racing, swap meet, car coral and a midway filled with vendors and family fun activities. The action at the track was nonstop and highlighted by the PRO Show, the Superwinch wheel stander and the Hanna Stable of Jet Funny Cars and the ever popular Queen of Diamonds and of course the most incredible racing competition on the drag strip.

"The Super Chevy Show presented by Chevrolet Performance is one of the most anticipated shows at Memphis International Raceway with many participants coming from miles around and enjoying the many festivities this show has to offer," stated Pam Kendrick, VP and GM at Memphis International Raceway.

Sunday, April 13

When Sunday rolled around and all the money was on the table, the racers prepared to battle it out for the prestigious honor of being the "Super Chevy Show Champion" in their respective classes. As the eliminations progressed and the championship was within sight, the weather from the west reached MIR with evening storms moving into the Millington area. As a result, no overall winner would be proclaimed due to rain shortened eliminations.

The Jr. Dragster's saw Brianna Moore make her first appearance in the final round with Tyler Poindexter. They split the event and Justin Poindexter was the semi-finalist. R.T. Turbines D.O.T. Raymond Kendall and Todd Berry split the event and Michael Crass was the semi-finalist. The DriveDuracell.com Bracket 1 class still had six drivers remaining and Bracket 2 had six remaining with no declared winner because of the rain shortened event. One of the most high powered classes of the day, the Pro Mod's presented by Neal Chance Racing Converters were able to complete their eliminations with Tim Savell, from Terry, Miss. taking the win over Jerry Prater, from Ripley, Tenn. by .046 seconds.

The high performance Road Course is considered among the most competitive in the Mid-South with 8 turns and a 3,500-foot straightaway. Hosting such premier events as the IHRA Summit World Finals, Super Chevy Show and the American Drag Racing League's Memphis Drags IV, the Drag Strip was built to IHRA and NHRA specifications, and its track, concrete to the 1/8-mile, was milled and polished by Penhall.

Home to the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience and built to NASCAR specifications, the paved Tri-Oval Short Track consists of 11-degree banked turns, 4-degree straightaways, and an 1,100-foot backstretch with ample bleachers and 16 VIP Suites.
