KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- If you think the months of December and January are for taking time off and vacation, think again. The new owners of the Super Chevy Show series couldn't be busier. One of the top priorities is arranging a feature category for each of the 10 national events featured on the 30th anniversary season in 2010.

While each of the 10 national events will have some consistency in the type and caliber of entertainment on and off the race track and car show stage, there will be room for local interpretation on what the feature category will be at each venue. The owners of each Super Chevy Show series event has the ability to provide one major feature category - a task they are taking seriously. Each track wants to give fans and participants something exciting, especially in the 30th anniversary of the Super Chevy Show series.

Bill Bader, owner of Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio and host of the June 12-13 event, has already booked the nostalgic Fuel-Altered race cars to feature his Super Chevy Show.

"We are going to have the period-correct, short-wheel base cars from the 1960s that fans love," Bader said. "They run on nearly 100 percent nitro methane and they are ill-handling cars that travel at speeds topping 230 mph. They are really neat old cars and they need a home because they don't appear in any other sanctioning body or series.

"We are going to have the Pure Heaven car, the Rat Trap and other fan-favorites and hopefully we can build a future with them in the Super Chevy Show series because they are great nitro-burning cars that add an exciting element to the racing portion of the weekend."

Firebird International Raceway will feature Nostalgic Funny Cars when the Super Chevy Show rolls into Phoenix for the season finale event, Oct. 23-24. Firebird's Charlie Allen said he wants to have this particular nitro-burning race car during the weekend to give fans a taste of speed and history.

"Every track owner is excited about finding their unique feature to the Super Chevy Show series," Allen said. "We are going to have the nostalgic Funny Cars because the nitro coupes run in the five-second range, they burn nitro and they represent a great era of racing.

"These Funny Cars are unique and appeal to all kinds of race fans and car enthusiasts. The Super Chevy Show is going to be quite an event for us in 2010."
