October 14 — If he keeps this up, he might be in the running for the cover of Time Magazine’s Person-of-the-Year issue. Jeremy McCague of Chamois, Missouri, won not one but three drag racing classes Saturday during Gateway Motorsports Park’s annual Mid-America Chevy Dealers Chevy Show. The Mid-America Chevy Dealers Chevy Show is an all-Chevrolet drag racing and car show event, part of the Menards Chevy Series. More than 749 cars participated in the weekend of drag racing.
McCague (pictured above) entered his faithful black 1969 Nova in the Super Pro and Pro classes and his recently-purchased 1974 Vega wagon in the 6.0 Index class and went home with three trophies and three winner’s checks. McCague defeated Ron Hendrixon of St. Louis in the Pro final, then bested Cory Landolt in the Super Pro finale, and later jumped into his other car to trailer Rod Schaeffer in the final round of 6.0 Index eliminations.
Dennis Pearson of St. Peters, Missouri defeated Mark Probst of Teutopolis, Illinois in the 7.0 Index final. Geoff Dugopolski of Hazelwood, Missouri won the Sportsman final over Blaine Miller of Evora, Kansas.
