Calling All Corvette Enthusiasts!

Championship Auto Shows, Inc. has announced the 27th Annual Nickey Chicago Chevy Vettefest, presented by Bill Stasek Chevrolet will take place November 22-23, 2008 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (5555 N. River Rd., Rosemont, Ill.).

As the world's largest All-Indoor, All-Chevrolet show and swap meet, the fall event is expected to be the biggest and best show yet. The show packs in more than 400 swap meet and commerical vendor spaces, and more than 400 of the country's best Chevrolets.

The Triple Crown Gallery features the finest Corvettes, accepted only after achieving NCRS Top Flight and Bloomington Gold status (the most prestigious awards among restored and original Corvette enthusiasts). Achieving this Triple Crown status is considered the ultimate achievement among those in the Corvette world.
This year's Chevy Vettefest will also feature a High Performance '68-'70 Chevy Nova Showcase, the sYc Supercars Showcase, and what is believed to be the ONLY gathering of '69 Camaro Z/28's that may represent all of the 18 available colors, along with several special order non-standard cars.

The 2008 Nickey Chicago Chevy Vettefest, presented by Bill Stasek Chevrolet is teaming up with the Race & Performance Expo to kickoff the "Hot Rodders of America Engine Challenge" at this year's event. Contestants are invited from local high schools and junior colleges with five-student teams to race against the clock disassembling, and then reassembling the engines using only hand tools. Adding to the pressure (and excitement), the teams are being judged by officials, and viewed by the audience.

Competition starts Saturday, November 22, with 14 high school teams. Eight winning teams will advance to the "Super Bowl Shootout," which will be held at the Race & Performance Expo, February 14, 2009 at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Ill. Sunday, November 23, will see three local Junior Colleges competing for one play-off spot at the Race & Performance Expo finals, Sunday, February 15, 2009 at the Pheasant Run Resort.
