The Chevrolet Performance Challenge Series went off without a hitch this past weekend as part of the Arrington Performance NMRA/NMCA All-American Nationals at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan. As usual, the competition was fierce, and racers showed up with Corvettes, Camaros, and a host of other Chevrolet-powered vehicles too. And while there were fewer spectators at the event due to the current circumstances, the crowd was still excited to see all of the cars on race day.
