Fast Rides and Good Times at the
2016 Goodguys Southeastern Nationals …

The 2016 Goodguys Southeastern Nationals in Charlotte, North Carolina was a good example of how the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has mastered the art of putting on great car shows. The popular Goodguys Autocross competition was very competitive. The Autocross competition is now one of the most popular events at this year’s Goodguys events. We talked to Ryan Mathews, the driver for the Detroit Speed team. The interview was before the Goodguys Award ceremony at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. There it was announced that he had won the Autocross Pro Class.

The 2016 Goodguys Southeastern Nationals held their awards ceremony in the Winners Circle at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Many of the award winners we saw here today will be finalists for the Goodguys top awards at Phoenix next month. See them in the slider below:

People come from all over the Carolinas and surrounding states to get their fill of nostalgia and good times. In fact, many of our newsletter readers who harkened to the call to meet in Charlotte this weekend got a chance to mark one off their bucket list. Hundreds of show car owners and hobbyists were able to Cruise Under the Lights on the hallowed Charlotte Motor Speedway. It was a sight to see.

This Goodguys 23rd Annual Pennzoil Southeastern Nationals will be a memorable occasion for our readers. Over 2,500 cars registered for the Show & Shine all three days. The Goodguys Car Show, Swap Meet and Cars 4 Sale Corral are a huge draw for spectators and buyers during one of the nation’s premier car shows. (To get more information on how to register your car, or how to get tickets for the show click this link.) We were able to shoot photos of some of the Goodguys finalists for top awards here today. The awards will be announced later.
