ROCKINGHAM — Two weeks of almost-constant action kicked off Saturday at Rockingham Dragway for the annual Super Chevy Show.

The event featured a car show with entrants displaying their classic and modern GM machines and, of course, drag racing.

Although it was mostly a Chevy showdown, there were a few Ford and Dodge vehicles thrown in the mix to test their engines on the quarter-mile track.

Dawn Perdue and Larry Aldrich also fired up their jet cars for several competitive passes.

The Rock hosts Day 2 of Hot Rod Drag Week on Tuesday with 400 drivers battling to see who has the fastest street car in the nation.

Free tickets for the latter event are available at several local businesses. See the Visit Richmond County Facebook page for locations.
