Super Chevy car show to feature new judges
One reason the Super Chevy Show at Maple Grove Raceway is the biggest in the world is the car show.
Sure, The Grove gets hundreds of racers ready to launch their cars down the quarter-mile dragstrip during the summer weekend, but hundreds more love the fact they can show off their pride and joy to their fellow Chevy enthusiasts.
When the show returns on July 19-21, car show participants will have a new group of judges.
Previously, the running of the car show part of Super Chevy has been left to judges from the ISCA (the indoor show circuit). In 2013, a local company, Full House Motorsports LLC of Lansdale, Pa., will take over the car show.
It will mean some small modifications to the check-in process, small changes to the awards and small changes to the awards ceremony. It will also mean a more streamlined event.
“As far as judging, yes, the normal faces that you are used to seeing judge vehicles won’t be there,” said Brian Lutz of Full House Motorsports, “but rest assured that the judges that Full House Motorsports uses know what they are doing.
“All the judges that are employed for the event have a combined 100-plus years of judging, participating, and/or producing events in the region. That means the integrity of the show judging will remain in place in 2013 and beyond.”
Lutz added that as producers of the NorthEast Rod and Custom Nationals – which is being held this weekend in Oaks, Pa. – and many other events in the region, Full House Motorsports prides itself on a fair, but fun event to be had by all.
“This partnership between Maple Grove Raceway and Full House Motorsports will usher in a new and impartial way of handling the car show,” Lutz said, “and we both look forward to seeing everyone in July.”
The Super Chevy Show is part of Maple Grove’s summer Manufacturers’ Series that also features the Mega Mopar Series on June 22-23 and the Fun Ford Weekend on Aug. 17-18. Other big car shows on the schedule include Pontiacs at The Grove on June 16 and the Geezers Reunion at The Grove on Aug. 3-4. The VW June Bug Classic will feature hundreds of the popular German-engineered cars on June 9.
