As is the tradition at Maple Grove Raceway, the Super Chevy Show presented by Original Parts Group was a marathon. With nearly 700 race entries and well over 300 car show entries, everyone wanted their share of the three-day weekend.

From the swap meet and manufacturers’ midway to the Hanna Motorsports Jet Cars and the True Street Challenge, The Grove was bustling with activity from 7 p.m. Friday morning to 7 p.m. Saturday night.

With the sun setting on Sunday, a select group of racers were able to bring their cars to PPC Lubricants Victory Lane for some very happy celebrations.The non-electronics Bracket 2 itself featured 205 cars and veteran racer Michael VanDenHeuvel (Elkton, Md.) won it in his 1984 Olds Cutlass. He clinched the win when the ’98 S-10 pickup driven by Martin Flegal (Ephrata, Pa.) broke at the starting line. VanDenHeuvel, a Maple Grove regular, finished his pass in 11.442 seconds at 115.54 mph.
