Manufacturers Series to Host 25 Events in the 2017 Season

The Manufacturers Series consisting of the Super Chevy Show, Fun Ford, and Mega Mopar events will take place at motorsports facilities throughout the U.S. in 2017.  At total of 25 event dates are already secured with more tracks expected to be added before the season beings next spring.  Many of the tracks hosting events have been a part of the series since it was established at the start of the 2010 season.   The seventh consecutive season for the Manufacturers Series will focus on popular car shows, drag racing, swap meet, and car corral activities for participants and fans alike.
Nearly 1,000 participants compete on average at Manufacturers Series events for awards and prizes.  To most participants the prestige of winning their class in a car show or bracket race is the most rewarding.  For others it is about having the best restored show car or racing exhibition vehicle that gets aired on the Menards Chevy Series TV show.
Lex Dudas, President of the Manufacturers Series, is very optimistic about the 2017 season for series participants, fans, and sponsors.  “The Manufacturers Series has a very positive direction for 2017.  Our major sponsors including Duracell, RockAuto, Original Parts Group, and LMC Truck are all returning and we have some new sponsors coming on board as well.  So many companies want to be involved with the Menards Chevy Series TV Show because they receive impressions to thousands of participants and fans on-site at events, and then receive broadcast impressions reaching more than 2 million viewers through the TV Show.
The Menards Chevy Series airs on Saturday mornings on the Velocity channel in the fourth quarter each year at 9:30am EST.  An audience of 2.1 million viewers watched the 2016 series on TV, and 2017 Nielsen ratings already show a 12% increase in year-over-year viewership.
