Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has revealed its 2021 event schedule featuring 19 events in 13 markets across the United States, including the addition of a second fall event in Del Mar, California.

The all-new Goodguys 1st So-Cal Nationals will take place at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Oct. 1-3 and will embrace and celebrate southern California’s longtime and unprecedented passion for classic automotive culture with several new features including a dedicated indoor VW showcase, a classic off-road 4×4 vehicle exhibit, a vintage trailer exhibit, So-Cal themed automotive art gallery and more, the company said.

For 2021, Nashville has a new date and title sponsor – The 15th BASF Nashville Nationals moves from its former mid-June date to Memorial Day weekend, May 28-30 at Nissan Stadium in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.  This new date will feature the annual Goodguys 2021 TANKS Inc “Hot Rod of the Year” competition.

The remaining seventeen 2021 events are scheduled for their traditional annual weekends.  Additionally, all sixteen “national” events will incorporate All-American Sunday, welcoming all American made and powered vehicles of all years to the show to cap off each weekend’s festivities.

Highlighting the 2021 schedule will be Goodguys’ “Mid-Summer Classic” – the 30th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals presented by BASF scheduled for Independence Day weekend, July 2-4 in Des Moines, Iowa and the “Big One” – the Goodguys 23rd Summit Racing Nationals presented by PPG (formerly the PPG Nationals) taking place the following weekend, July 9-11 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio.

The Goodguys AutoCross timed racing series will take place at seventeen events with each race featuring class shootouts on the Saturday afternoon of each event. The Goodguys AutoCross season will wrap up at the Goodguys 24th Speedway Motors Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona with the “Duel in the Desert,” featuring the season’s fastest thirty-two cars in a shootout to determine the Goodguys 2021 Auto Crosser of the Year.
