Friday First Look! Goodguys 25th Speedway Motors Southwest Nationals

The 2022 event season is about to drift into the rearview mirror, but Goodguys is still looking ahead this weekend as we focus on a fun-filled finale here in the Arizona desert. The 25th Speedway Motors Southwest Nationals kicked off today at WestWorld of Scottsdale, bringing together thousands of incredible rods, customs, classics, and trucks for some end-of-season fun in the Arizona sun!

We’re sending the season off in style, just as we normally do here in November. We’ve got the Goodguys Meguiar’s Top 12 Of The Year winners lined up outside the main tent, dozens of vendors set up both inside and out, a tremendous swap meet, an incredible array of colorful rides filling the facility, and intense Goodguys CPP AutoCross action that will culminate in multiple Duel in the Desert shootouts and the King of the Desert finale on Saturday. And that’s on top of all the usual features you’ve come to expect from a Goodguys national event weekend.

The weather forecast looks picture perfect, and all the pieces are coming together to make for a spectacular season sendoff here in Scottsdale! In other words, you owe it to yourself to get down here if you live anywhere close – this is one happening you’ll want to experience in person! If you can’t break free to get here, then make sure you stay tuned to Goodguys social media and for highlights of all the Good Times as we speed toward the horizon and leave the 2022 season behind.
