JOLIET, Ill.(September 10, 2019) —Following an outpour of enthusiasm displayed by Chevrolet fans in the Chicagoland area, The Super Chevy Show will finally return to Route 66 Raceway on Saturday and Sunday, September 14-15, 2019.

At its core, the event will feature a judged car show with more than thirty classes, overseen by seven of the region’s top accredited judges.As the pages of Super Chevy come to life, car owners will once again compete for over 100 awards including the coveted Best In Class Awards and the iconic Super Chevy Show Winner’s Jackets.The show will also boast a non-judged group and true car corral.

In partnership with the event, The Super Chevy Magazine will have a commanding presence; highlighted by 5 Editor’s Choice awards.

Throughout the weekend, fans will enjoy a bustling midway, music, robust swap meet, head-to-head GM-only racing, and two nationally acclaimed exhibition shows per day featuring an array of Pro Mods and the infamous, Connecticut-based Hanna Motorsports Jet-Cars, “Eastern Raider” and “First Strike.”

Illinois-native and drag racing legend Arnie “The Farmer” Beswick will be on hand to meet and greet with fans throughout the weekend. Fans will also be privy to exhibition passes by the iconic Tameless Tiger II Pontiac GTO. Beswick, best described as the consummate underdog in drag racing, earned his first NHRA win in Grand Bend, Kansas in 1955 and has been involved with the sport in some capacity ever since.
