Smile Chevy Street Cruise to open Super Chevy Show Weekend in Houston


Ron Craft Chevrolet Street Cruise to open Super Chevy Show weekend in Houston

BAYTOWN, Texas (Aug. 4) -- Houston Raceway Park hasn't hosted a Super Chevy Show in five years. But when the national touring series, which is celebrating its 30th season, returns to Southern Texas, it will do so in style.


HRP officials announced this week that it will kick off the Houston Super Chevy Show presented by O'Reilly Auto Parts and Ron Craft Chevrolet, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11-Sunday, Sept. 12, with the Chevy Street Cruise that will parade through the heart of Baytown to Houston Raceway Park.


The cruise, which is expected to feature some of the best-looking classic and contemporary Chevy cars in the region, will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 11 at the Ron Craft Chevrolet dealership, which is located on Interstate 10 East between John Martin Road and Garth Road. It will feature police escorts and make its way through Baytown and arrive at HRP, where all participants will earn a Fast Pass into the track and to the car staging area.


HRP is topping off the event by awarding one lucky Chevy Street Cruise participant with a free four-day Caribbean cruise package from Carnival Cruise Lines. Various other door prizes with awards will be handed out from Ron Craft Chevrolet, including $500 in Exxon Mobile gas cards, a set of GM chrome nerf-bars, two Chevy truck bedliners, two sets of his and her Chevy watches, gift cards to O'Reilly Auto Parts and much more.


"We could not think of a more appropriate way to launch the return of the Super Chevy Show to Houston Raceway Park than to kick off our weekend with this Chevy Street Cruise from Ron Craft Chevrolet," said Seth Angel, HRP general manager. "I can only imagine what a parade of Chevy's traveling in unison down Texas Avenue in downtown Baytown's Historic District will look like. Get your cameras ready is all we can say because this will definitely be one of those Kodak moments."


Registration for the Street Cruise is from 8-9:15 a.m., and will include a complimentary breakfast. The cruise is open to all Chevy bodied or powered automobiles, and General Motors cars, including Saab, Saturn, Hummer and Cadillac. All participants must enter Saturday's Car Show, Car Corral or Show N' Shine.


The winner of the Carnival Cruise package will be announced in the Tower Club during the car show awards ceremony.


Also, Super Chevy Magazine editors will be on site to provide coverage for the Street Cruise, with highlights to appear on superchevyshow.com and Super Chevy Magazine. Previous car show cruises at Super Chevy Show events this season were big hits, including the season-opening race in Las Vegas.


"At Ron Craft Chevrolet in Baytown, the excitement is building in anticipation of the upcoming Super Chevy Street Cruise that will be starting at the dealership on Saturday, Sept. 11," said Ron Craft Chevrolet's Bill Suessman. "Ron Craft Chevrolet is proud to have the opportunity to team up with Houston Raceway Park to be part of this huge event."


"We are looking forward to seeing hundreds of participants to start the Chevy Street Cruise. It is going to be a spectacular event, so come on out and join the fun."


There will be more fun during the Houston Super Chevy Show, which will feature the popular car show and car corral, along with sportsman and pro show drag racing all weekend long. Sunday's action will include an autocross, where racers will take to a road course and compete against the clock.


"The return of the Super Chevy Show to Houston Raceway Park is shaping up to be a spectacular weekend," said Angel, "and just like the Chevy Street Cruise from Ron Craft Chevrolet, the whole Super Chevy weekend experience at Houston Raceway Park will be an unforgettable one."
