Goodguys is proud to announce Gearstar Performance Transmissions as the presenting sponsor of the coveted Goodguys Hot Rod of the Year award. The Goodguys Hot Rod of the Year is presented annually at the Hot Rod Nationals in Indianapolis. This year’s event is scheduled for June 11, 12 & 13 at O’Reilly Raceway Park.
The Hot Rod of the Year competition is just that – a two day competition for ’48 and earlier Hot Rods which seeks a true street driven machine that stands above the rest. Award criteria calls for a lap around the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 100 mile drive, and a 1/8th mile dragstrip run. The winning Hot Rod must be loud, regularly street driven, have a mean attitude and scream the words “Hot Rod.” No cream puffs need apply! That philosophy is mirrored by the Gearstar Company.
