MOHNTON, Pa. (Feb. 21, 2012) – With Maple Grove Raceway celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2012, the Super Chevy Show scheduled for July 20-22 promises to be extra special.
Maple Grove’s stop has historically been the largest of all Super Chevy Shows on the tour in both attendance and participation. The 2012 season is bound to be a record-breaker.
Thankful for Maple Grove Raceway’s rich history, vice president/general manager Lex Dudas is ready for what the 2012 season has to offer.
“Maple Grove is very proud to host the largest show on the national tour. The event has been well supported each and every year with over 650 race entries, 425 car show entries and over 250 swap meet entries,” said Dudas. “2012 marks the 50th anniversary of Maple Grove Raceway and the 26th time we have held a Super Chevy Show. We know the support we receive from our loyal Super Chevy customers has played a very large part in making Maple Grove Raceway what it is today.”
Presenting Sponsor of Maple Grove’s Super Chevy Show, Original Parts Group Inc., is also be celebrating a milestone in 2012 with its 30th Anniversary. The sponsorship will include a special car show plaque during the Class Awards ceremony for the Best “Chevy A-Body” Restoration of the Show.
