Friday First Look! 29th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals
The day we have been waiting for has finally come! The 2020 Goodguys season kicked off today at the 29th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa and we could not be more pleased with the understanding and cooperation of those in attendance who have followed our new Goodguys Cares health & safety guidelines – guidelines that have directly allowed us to bring America’s Favorite Car Show to the Heartland on this beautiful Independence Day weekend!
Although some aspects of the event are inherently different from years past, there’s still a lot of Goodguys Goodtimes to be had this weekend. Over 3,000 hot rods, customs, muscle cars and trucks rolled through the gates this morning and set up a fantastic display of color and chrome at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Add in AutoCross racing, vendor displays from industry manufactures, a kickin’ swap meet, and the newly added Street Rod and Street Machine of the Year competitions, and this year’s event will be one to remember!

We’re knockin’ the rust off and gearing up for two more great days in Iowa! Tomorrow night we’ll crown the 2020 Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year and the 2020 PPG Street Machine of the Year during a special awards ceremony and then dive into a massive fireworks display to commemorate the 4th of July and our American Independence!
