Memphis, April 18, 2012: Memphis International Raceway is back in action after a successful Super Chevy Show, presented by GM Performance, returned to the track. Over ten thousand race fans came out to Memphis International Raceway to celebrate the heritage and craft of the American automobile and experience the racing action of the show.

For Chevrolet enthusiasts from racers to car show participants – Chevy is a way of life. Excitement and enthusiasm reverberated throughout the fans who had long-awaited the return of the Super Chevy Show at their home track. The overwhelming reaction from the crowd was, “Memphis is back!”

Five hundred classic, custom and new model Chevys from as far away as Michigan were showcased in Memphis International Raceway’s pit area for the car and truck show on Saturday and Sunday. While there were almost six hundreds participants in the show’s swap meet and car corral.

Thousands of fans packed the grandstands on the quarter-mile drag strip to experience the rumble, roar and power of head-to-head drag racing. More than four hundred Chevy racers from as far away as Louisiana and local fan favorites took to the lanes to compete throughout the weekend. The Pro Show fueled the energy of the event featuring Jet Funny Cars, Pro Modifieds and Pro Wheel standers thundering down the drag strip.

Vice President and General Manager Pam Kendrick said, “Chevy fans in the South have waited 3 years for the return of the series to MIR. The response of the fans, car show participants and racers was far greater than anticipated. It will go down as one of the biggest Super Chevy events in history here in Memphis and sets the stage for a blockbuster 2012 schedule here at the track!”
