We just received the official schedule for the Super Chevy Show at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis (May 10-12). It truly has something for everyone, including an escorted cruise from Canton, Texas, to bring the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Wall to the Motorplex for the weekend. There will be another cruise on Saturday, not to mention special awards, drag racing, autocross, and the always popular AMSOIL Best of the Best competition, presented by Danchuk and Classic Muscle.
WHAT: The third of 12 Super Chevy Show events slated for 2012 will be held at Texas Motorplex, May 12, 2012. But the action heats up starting Thursday with an escorted cruise from Canton, Texas to bring the American Veterans Traveling Tribute wall to Texas Motorplex for the weekend display.
The Super Chevy Show is a celebration of one of America’s most popular brands. The Motorplex will be filled with a car show, swap meet, car corral, kid’s activities area and of course, drag racing with the region’s top bracket racers as well as other family-fun entertainment.
Saturday will also feature two special events: A cruise and a fund-raising motorcycle race. Anyone who wants to cruise to the Motorplex with Super Chevy Magazine editors and photographers will gather in downtown Waxahachie (in front of the courthouse, corner of College Street and E. Main, Waxahachie) for coffee, snacks and camaraderie. The cruise will depart Waxahachie at 9 a.m. and everyone will be led by escort to the gates of Texas Motorplex.
All entry fees for the Saturday Ennis Memorial Motorcycle Showdown will be donated to the Ennis Veteran’s Memorial committee for their memorial honoring the nation’s veterans.
This year only: All car show and race winners will receive a special commemorative coin in addition to trophies and cash prizes (varies depending on category) that honors and supports the Ennis Veterans Memorial.
