The folks at Super Chevy Show delivered a great weekend of racing action, as well as a huge car show, to Maple Grove Raceway. This year's event was the 25th anniversary of the first Super Chevy event at Maple Grove. Friday's action was cut short due to some downpours in the area, but come Saturday morning, the threat of rain was gone and the only weather threat in the area was blue skies and lots of sun!

On Saturday, the Tremec True Street Challenge got into full swing with the cars going out for a short cruise, then to the starting line for 3 back to back passes. This class is really fun to follow as the cars are really put to the test, and the crowd loves to see these street legal machines tear it up down the 1320. The True Street class was full of members from GDR, like Marc Schankweiler who was the favorite after the first pass, running in the 8.60s. His gremlins returned and he was not able to get the car started after the second run, giving him the DQ. George Martinelli had no issues with the cruise, as his 30's Coupe is driven on the street to and from the track. Glenn Hunter was running an average time of 8.92 which was good enough to take home the win for the day. Runner-up was Mark Berese in his '80 Malibu, and the other winners of the class were as follows:

10 Second Index: Bill Betton
11 Second Index: Joe Focarino
12 Second Index: Brett Delong
13 Second Index: Gwen Miller

The Nitro Coupe class, run only at the Super Chevy Show, had 8 mean rides competing in the 1/8th mile challenge. 'The Kid' Ken Walsh came out and laid down a wicked 3.963 @ 189mph pass on the very first qualifier, setting the bar quite high. Ken, however, was taken out early in eliminations as he spun and had problems getting down the track. The final pairing in the Nitro Coupe class was TJ DeHaven and Doug Winters. The final was a great side-by-side race, with Doug Winters beating DeHaven to the stripe and taking home the win for the day. The win put Winters #2 in the Nitro Coupe points standings.

Tons, and I mean tons of cars were battling in the bracket programs all weekend. Those that were eliminated in the first round of the bracket challenge had the chance to get back into the action in the Last Chance race. It seemed to us that just about everyone that had the chance got back into the race for the small fee and nice payout. George Martinelli in his 1930s Coupe, an active GDR member, was going rounds taking out doorslammers and dragsters like it was nothing. George ended up going out in the semis, much to the disappointment of the crowd who had his back the whole day. Pat Barbone, racing in the borrowed red truck, went to the finals and took home the runner-up spot for the day. Winners of the bracket classes are as follows:
Bracket One: Kurt Holland
Bracket Two: Dan Walleigh
DOT Street: Kevin Mendenhall
Last chance Race: Bill Rizzo

Be sure to see Super Chevy's web site for all of the race results


Over in the car show area, participants had their rides gleaming for the judges and fans that came out. Every show class was packed with some wicked rides, and there are so many awards that were given out we don't have the space to list them all -- be sure to check out Super Chevy Show's Car Show Results for all of the information.




Here are some of the pics from the gallery to give you a preview -- there are tons of pics, I invite you to go through them all and check out all the action!

Thanks for the kind words, after what, 2 years of bantering on the compuuter, we finally got to talk in person. It was good to meet you , and quite a few (many actually) members.I'm sure sooner or later we'll do a final together, wanna split the purse, Ha Ha.
