MECHANICSVILLE, Maryland (August 20, 2016) - Maryland International Raceway™ (MDIR) and TEN: The Enthusiast Network celebrated the return of the Super Chevy Show to the famed Budds Creek facility on Saturday. The all-General Motors show featured two ET sportsman bracket races, a car show, swap meet, vendor area and Jet Wars.

The local racers highlighted the day and took to the quarter-mile drag strip to battle it out for the coveted Super Chevy Show title. The Mattera family became a familiar fixture in the Maryland International Raceway winner's circle as two brothers took home three trophies during the event. Here's a breakdown of the two race showdown at Maryland International Raceway:

Bracket 1 (Top ET)

Bobby Mattera of Waldorf, Maryland won the first Bracket 1 (Top ET) race of the day in his '70 Opel. Mattera used a .001 reaction time and a 5.783 on a 5.78 dial against Robbie Parlett's 4.669 ET breakout on a 4.71 dial.

In the Bracket 1 final race, Doug Minter of King George, Virginia used a .014 reaction time and 5.443 ET on a 5.42 dial-in to take his '67 Nova to the winner's circle. Minter was victorious over Marc Williams and his Leonardtown, Maryland based '15 dragster.
