Late-Model American Vehicles to Be Welcomed at Three Upcoming Goodguys Events

Jun 15, 2011

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has announced that it will feature the new “Sunday Get-Together” promotion, which welcomes American-made or American-powered cars and trucks of all years, makes and models, at three of its upcoming events.

The “Sunday Get-Together” promotion will be held on the last day of the 5th PEAK Chicagoland Nationals, which takes place Aug. 12-14 in Joliet, Illinois, as well as at the 10th Midwestern Nationals, to be held Sept. 2-4 in Kansas City, Kansas, and the Goodguys 18th Southeastern Nationals, which takes place Oct. 28-30 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“We’re really excited to be swinging open the event gates to the late-model American-made and American-powered cars in Chicago, Kansas City and Charlotte,” said Harry Daviess, Goodguys vice president of event operations, in a statement released by the association. “We have done Get-Together-style events for over 25 years in our hometown of Pleasanton, California, and it’s an outstanding format for car guys. The ‘Big Three’ build some awesome new muscle cars and hot rods. It will be something to see a ’69 Camaro parked next to a 2010 Camaro. Same with the Dodge Challengers, Ford Mustangs, GTO’s and others.”

“All Goodguys are car guys at heart,” Daviess added. “This will further broaden the scope of the events allowing as many as six or seven generations of car people to participate in a Goodguys event.”

Goodguys will charge a one-day fee at registration for the late-model cars. The association will pick as many as 20 Sunday Get-Together awards and keep the AutoCross road course open on Sunday at these three events. A Sunday track cruise is also scheduled around each super speedway.
