Brand new event names and formats for the Goodguys shows in the Northeast and Indianapolis will appear on the 2014 Goodguys event schedule! The Goodguys All American Nationals – West Springfield, June 13-15, replaces the former Goodguys East Coast Nationals at the Eastern States Exposition Center. The Goodguys All American Nationals – Indianapolis, June 6-8, will move to the Indiana State Fairgrounds and replaces the Speedway Nationals at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Both full-scale nationals events will feature the same great atmosphere rodder’s have come to love, but now welcome all years, makes and models of American made and American powered show cars all three event days! The previous event format called for late models on Sunday only.
“We talked to a lot of the car guys in both regions and this is the format they wanted,” said Harry Daviess, VP of Event Operations for Goodguys. “Most automotive events, cruise-ins and other shows feature the all-years format. We noticed a huge turnout of late models at both of these events for our All American Sunday so we’re excited to welcome the late model guys for the entire weekend next summer. The size of last year’s AutoCross field of competitors in West Springfield and Indianapolis nearly tripled on Sunday when the late model cars arrived, so they’re ready to come out and support the new format,” he said.
According to Daviess, there’s room for another 2,000 cars in West Springfield and even more at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. “Both of these great facilities can handle four to five thousand cars”, Daviess said. “We’ll never run out of space at the Eastern States Exposition Center or the Indiana State Fairgrounds.”
The new event formats also opens the doors for more product vendors, more visitors and more car clubs to participate. The events will include all traditional Goodguys event features such as the outdoor Show & Shine, vendor exhibits, indoor car shows, Demolition Derby (Indy only) Ahwooga.com Swap Meet, AutoTrader Classics Cars 4 Sale Corral, Goodguys AutoCross, live entertainment, kids entertainment, model car show and more.
A new, more affordable pricing structure will also be in place for participants. “Early Bird” registration (the most cost effective way to pre-enter a show car) is available now for West Springfield and will be available soon for Indianapolis. Keep an eye out for more details soon.
