Menards Chevy Show Series Ready for 2018 with New Venues and Millions of Viewers
The Menards Chevy Show will give participants in the southeastern U.S. more opportunities to participate in 2018 with new events in South Carolina and Alabama. A new Midwest venue has also been added in Kansas City for automotive enthusiasts throughout Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa to attend.
Thousands of car show, drag race, and swap meet participants attend the events each season at a dozen facilities in the U.S. Many of the traditional locations host drag racing during their events at Bandimere Speedway, Maple Grove Raceway, Bristol Dragway, Texas Motorplex, Virginia Motorsports Park, No Problem Raceway, and Auto Club Famoso Raceway in Bakersfield. New facilities with drag strips and car shows added to the Menards Chevy Show schedule for 2018 include Darlington Dragway, U.S. 90 Dragway in Mobile, Alabama, and the South Carolina Motorplex in Orangeburg.
In the category of non-race track venues, Ace Cafe Orlando held its first Menards Chevy Show with great success in 2017. The automotive themed restaurant will once again host an event, which nearly reached capacity through pre-entries because of its popularity. Joining the Menards Chevy Show in the same non-track category, the 11th annual KCI Cruise Car Show will become part of the series through its rapidly growing event near Kansas City International Airport. This Kansas City event reached 1,000 participants this past season and looks to keep the momentum going by adding the TV show.
Since 2015, the Menards Chevy Show series has been broadcast on the Velocity channel. More than two million TV viewers have annually tuned in to watch the series on Saturday mornings at 9:30am EST in October, November, and December to see their cars at events, and check out other entries for restoration ideas and trends. The popular TV series has been renewed again for the 2018 season on Velocity.
