AMSOIL Super Chevy Best of the Best Visits Tennessee
Readers select Memphis’ top five cars from Super Chevy Show
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (May 2, 2012) – Five cars and their owners took top honors in the second of 12 Super Chevy shows of 2012, which opened April 13. The AMSOIL Best of the Best Presented by Danchuk and Classic Muscle, held at Memphis International Raceway, named winners in the Chevy Tri-Five, Chevy Camaro, Chevy Chevelle, Chevy Nova and Chevy Full-Size categories.
“The quality of the show cars is so high that picking the top vehicles in each category comes down to the most minute details. The undercarriage has to be as highly detailed as the paint, the interior has to be perfect and body panel alignment must be spot on,” said Jim Campisano, editor of Super Chevy. “You can have 10 Camaros on hand that all have six figures invested in them. It makes our job as judges that much more challenging, but that’s why we call it the ‘Best of the Best.’”
This year’s Memphis winners are:
• Chevy Tri-Five: Don Bigham, Randall, Kan., ’57 Bel Air
• Chevy Camaro: Chris Morganelli, Atoka, Tenn., ’67 Pro Touring 400 SBC
• Chevy Chevelle: Poppa Hyde, Bartlett, Tenn., ’87 Monte Carlo Aerocoupe
• Chevy Nova: Mike and Sindy Helton, Hernando, Miss., ’69 Street Machine
• Chevy Full-Size: Jim Inman, Ward, Ark., ’62 Impala chopped top
Super Chevy will host 12 shows at various racetracks across the country. Editors will nominate the five top cars in each of the five categories and the magazine readers will select their favorites in each class by voting online at http://bestofthebest.superchevy.com.
At the end of the year, the 12 winners from each category will face off to see which car fans will pick as the AMSOIL Best of the Best Presented by Danchuk and Classic Muscle grand champion in each class.
“The AMSOIL Best of the Best Presented by Danchuk and Classic Muscle debuted in 2011 and we couldn’t be more excited for the second season of competition,” continued Campisano. “The amount of interest we got last year was amazing. We had thousands of online votes and the competition provided a truly unique way for the editors of Super Chevy and its readers to interact with one another. Now, with a year under our belts, we expect this season to be even more impressive. At the first two events of the year, we saw some amazing cars and we look forward to the rest of the year.”
The next Super Chevy show will take place in Dallas May 11 – 12.
