Scottsdale, AZ – The stage is set for another season of Full Throttle Fun – Complete with AutoCross this year! Goodguys Rod & Custom Association is poised to kick off its 2015 event season March 13-15 in Scottsdale, Arizona bringing together over 2,500 candy colored and chromed hot rods, customs, classics, muscle cars and trucks to the Valley of the Sun for three days of true American hot rodding fun.

Fans will get a close up glimpse of just how eclectic the modern day hot rodding scene is though in spirit – the Goodguys core message is unchanged after over 30 years – having fun with cars. It is a trip back in time for many. The sight of all of those classic cars takes us back to a simpler time in our history.
For those who have the need for speed, the shrill sound of rubber meeting pavement will fill the air with excitement as competitors in the Goodguys AutoCross, a closed performance race course, vehicle speed & agility meet to battle it out in a weekend long fastest-car-wins contest of speed & skill. Again this year, the Goodguys event season will showcase the AutoCross Shootout Finals qualifying at each event. The Duel in the Desert, the Final Shootout will take place at the 18th Southwest Nationals, November 21 at WestWorld.
For those who need to do some shopping for a project, there’s the midway featuring multi-million dollar custom big rig tractor trailers (a show in and of themselves) offering high-performance parts and accessories to budding hot rodders and do-it-yourselfers. Having the chance to interact directly with manufacturers has long been an appealing aspect of Goodguys events. Throw in a giant used car parts swap meet and Auto Trader Classics car corral (world’s coolest used car gathering) and it’s literally auto-utopia for any red blooded American with motor oil in their veins.
There are fun things for the kids to do, too at the 6th Spring Nationals. There’s even a model car program sponsored by Revell that sends the little one’s home with their very own model kit forging big dreams to one day come back to the show with a life sized version. Plus the PPG coloring contest and other kids games.
Goodguys All American Sunday on March 15 offers owners of American made or powered show cars and trucks of all years to come inside the event to show off next to the 1972 and earlier iron. All American Sunday participants are eligible for awards, and can join in the AutoCross on Sunday. Registration for All American Sunday takes place on site at WestWorld on Sunday, March 15 beginning at 7 am.
What started over 30 years ago in March 1983 in Northern California Is still true today. Goodguys events are all about cars…driving them, showing them, and hanging out with other car guys. Our company motto says it best….“Goodguys…Full Throttle Fun!” Goodguys events originate back to 1983, when official car nut Gary Meadors founded Goodguys back in the spring of ‘83 as a way to get car people and hot rod aficionados like him together to show off their cars, trade ideas, listen to some live music and have a little fun. The vision behind the Goodguys events was simple: to welcome all genres of American car enthusiasts with a lean towards V8 powered, low-to-the-ground eye catchers like hot rods from the 30s & 40s, lead sled customs from the 50s, Muscle Cars from the 70s as well as the new breed of American Muscle like 5.0 GT Mustangs, Z28 Camaros and more. What stated over 30 years ago is now a strong, 21-event series that allows car guys to meet and hang out with car guys. The spirit of hot rodding is alive and well at the Goodguys events for sure in the generations of cars on display. Currently, the event showcases pre-registered participants Alberta, Canada, Arizona, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Manitoba, Canada, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
