Super Chevy Show at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, April 29-May 1, 2011.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (April 22, 2011) – During the Las Vegas Super Chevy Show you will be able to wear out your tires and your automotive frenzy on the autocross course, dragstrip, have a car judged in the car show, pick up some spare parts in the swap meet, or just chill out in the grandstands. Any of the above choices will provide a lot of fun at this year’s version of the west coast kick off for the Super Chevy Show presented by GM Performance Division and Original Parts Group when it visits The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway April 29-May 1, 2011.

Returning from last season as Autocross sponsors, Total Cost Involved, Wilwood Disc Brakes and Currie Enterprises have added Toyo Tires as another promotional partner. “We are thrilled that Toyo Tires had such a great experience at the recent Super Chevy Show in Palm Beach, FL and that they are joining us for the show in Las Vegas. Having the autocross for our company, Total Cost Involved, as well as Wilwood, Currie, and Toyo Tires provides a great chance for everyone to see the performance of our products. We are very excited to see vehicles ranging from 60’s muscle cars to the new Corvettes and 5th Generation Camaros competing for the Autocross awards” said Sal Soloranzo, General Manager of Total Cost Involved.
