The pavement pounding, hi-adrenaline Goodguys AutoCross will sound a bit different this 2013 season as several new announcers have been added to the fold! Joining veteran announcer Chad Reynolds in the lineup this year will be former Goodguys Trendsetter and TV host Tim Strange, former PINKS cast member Charles Hendrickson as well as Reynolds’ longtime Bangshift.com partner Brian Lohnes.
Hendrickson will start off the season as the lead announcer during the Goodguys 4th Spring Nationals March 8-10 at Westworld in Scottsdale. Based in Phoenix, he’s the owner of Pro-Dyno a performance & fabrication shop specializing in hi-performance. In his role on PINKS – he served as technical advisor.
Former TV Host & Trendsetter Tim Strange first gained notoriety with Goodguys for his ground-scraping custom cars. Formerly in Illinois, Tim and his wife Carrie have relocated their famous Strange Motion custom shop to suburban Memphis where they continue to churn out award winning cars. With his razor sharp wit and vast car knowledge, Strange will offer “can’t miss” entertainment on the mic. His first scheduled AutoCross gig is the Goodguys 16th Colorado Nationals June 7-9 at the Ranch Events Complex in Loveland, Colorado.
“I’m excited about helping announce the Autocross events for Goodguys this year” Strange said. “The Autocross has blown up, with a ton of excitement for it. I think it makes attending the events that much more fun, and it allows event participants to drive the autocross track instead of just hanging out like some events. I think the Autocross has become so popular, especially for the younger crowd as they love the excitement and the action packed vibe of a race event. Younger people love to use and have fun driving their projects and this is the perfect venue for it.”
Finally, Brian Lohnes will be handling the Goodguys AutoCross announcing duties at the 8th Nashville Nationals, May 17-19 at LP Field. Like his partner Chad Reynolds, Lohnes knows cars inside and out, possesses a wicked sense of humor and serves as a welcome addition to the team!
