The inaugural Goodguys WIX Filters Speedway Nationals, September 16-18 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is just weeks away! The first event of its kind ever to be held on the hallowed grounds of the Speedway will be staged throughout the infield, garage area, Gasoline alley as well as the scenic plaza. The event will feature over 3,000 rods, customs, classics and muscle cars, plus vendor exhibits, an autocross performance course, swap meet, track cruise and much more!
Just the thought of being part of the first major rod & custom event to ever be held at the ‘Brickyard has many senior staff members buzzing with anticipation. “We consider it an honor to hold an event at IMS,” said Harry Daviess – Goodguys VP of Event Operations. “The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a shrine, the most hallowed ground in American motorsports. To be able to bring an event here means so much to Goodguys, our event participants, our sponsors and our fans. It has already created an unprecedented buzz in our industry.”
Daviess admits the estimate of 3,000 participant cars might be conservative . “We could see as many as 3,500 to 4,000 for the inaugural event,” he said. The event will be spectacular on many levels including a track cruise around IMS, Autocross, swap meet and cars for sale, live entertainment and the crowning of the Goodguys 2011 Gearstar Hot Rod of the Year and much more.
Over 1,500 cars are already pre-registered as of July 25th. Make sure you get pre-registered today so you don’t miss the most historic Goodguys event ever held!
