Menards Chevy SHow 7/13-7/15 at Maple Grove Racetrack, PA

I am strongly considering going to this event his upcoming weekend and I was wondering if anyone else was interested? I know that there are other local car shows and races at Island Dragway, but I hardly make it out to Maple Grove anymore, and since I missed the Pro-Mod event a few weeks ago, I want to try to get there for this.

It is basically a smaller, tamer version of the Super Chevy Show that used to exist there years ago. About 15 years ago the Super Chevy shows were big and some really awesome cars would show and race. I know the turnout has decreased, but it isn't horrible.

Anyways, here is the info. I will probably just be showing the car since I have a hurt rear differential...and I will be driving the car to and from NJ to PA.

I have been busy, so it took me a while to upload the 500ish photos I took over the two day even. Sorry about that.

The event was good. I drove out there early Saturday morning and had absolutely no issues with the car, not a stumble, no high temps, no drivetrain noise.. nada. Did have to swerve around the piles of horse poop in the road out in that area of PA. Also, some of those roads are real fun at putting my suspension to work!

I just did the show portion of the event since the car is not nearly fast enough to contend with the caliber of drag cars that were there.. even in the true-street class. So I parked, give it a wipe down, and walked the show field for an hour or so after I registered. The rest of the day I watched racing (4 nostalgia nitro funny cars, the Jet truck, and a great assortment of 7,8, 9, 10, 11 second Chevrolet vehicles) which went until about 5pm. Also chatted with a lot of people while walking around and on the show field. Stayed overnight at my grandmothers house (about 45 mins away). Came back Sunday, and after I got there it began pouring rain! many cars were already parked, some left (?? no idea why.. they were already wet?!) but I'm sure th rain deterred a bigger crowd. Once the track was dried, racing resumed and it made for a fun day. The Menards staff did something different, and everyone who braved the rain and kept thiir car out in the wet grass got an award and a jacket. I ended up leaving around 4:30 and drove on home. Car performed great again. All in all I put 309 miles on the car in those two days and enjoyed the seat time.

Here is a link to my full photo album.
