The national events company has received the required local government approvals to host the upcoming 2nd RaceDeck Salt Lake Nationals, 15th BASF Nashville Nationals, 1st Meguiar’s All-Star Get-Together and 23rd Summit Racing Nationals presented by PPG.

PLEASANTON, Calif.

“2021 is a year full of optimism and excitement,” said Goodguys Chief Operations Officer Andrew Ebel. “We have a lot of missed fun to make up for and we believe enthusiasts are just as excited as we are to return. The attendance at the three events we’ve held so far this year has exceeded expectations and we expect this trend will continue. Despite the challenges and swirling rumors, we are thrilled to announce our return to Salt Lake City, Nashville and Columbus as well as our second event in Fort Worth.”
