Saturday Spectacular at Super Chevy Show

Saturday, April 11, 2015
The Super Chevy Show at Memphis International Raceway (MIR) was greeted with the kind of day that was perfect for top speeds on the drag strip, top shine in the car show area and top dollar in the swap meet.

“You couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said MIR VP and GM Pam Kendrick. “We had wonderful weather all day long and the grandstands full of fans. We’re looking forward to more of the same tomorrow.”

Among the highlights of the day were:

*During opening ceremonies a group of approximately 40 U.S. Air Force recruits were sworn into the service.

* The Super Chevy Show’s car show handed out its specialty awards:
