Goodguys Cancels Nationals, Preps for Mid-Summer Classic

Goodguys has released a statement regarding their 2020 events schedule starting with the “Mid-Summer Classic” on Independence Day weekend, July 3-5, in Des Moines, IA. However, there is some grim news regarding other events. 

Their statement below:

To our Members and Supporters,

We are excited to announce that we will once again be hitting the road to deliver the Goodguys Good Times we have all been waiting for!

The 2020 Goodguys event season will officially relaunch with our “Mid-Summer Classic” on Independence Day weekend, July 3-5, in Des Moines, IA with the 29th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals presented by BASF.  Official event details, vehicle registration and ticket information is available now by CLICKING HERE.  Social distancing and additional health & hygiene standards will be in effect and in alignment with our “Goodguys Cares” health and safety guidelines.

While we are extremely pleased about the latest news for Iowa, we are deeply disappointed to inform you that we did not received the approval needed from local health officials to move forward with the Goodguys 23rd PPG Nationals in Columbus, OH.  Subsequently, we have made the extremely tough and emotional decision to cancel the event.  All vehicle registrations and tickets already purchased will automatically be applied to next year’s show.

With regards to the 1st RaceDeck Salt Lake Nationals in Salt Lake City, UT and the 33rd Pacific Northwest Nationals presented by Griot’s Garage in Puyallup, WA, both scheduled for the latter part of July, we have not yet received the approvals needed from local officials to move forward.  However, we are in contact with both markets daily and are continuing our preparations and planning for both events to take place.  We are hoping to send out an update on both events as more information becomes available by the end of next week.
