GoodGuys Speedway Nationals

Started off my final day at the GoodGuys Speedway Nationals bright and early drinking a cup of coffee at a picnic table near the Pagoda Scoring Tower and watching all the rods starting to rumble through the entrance.  You just can't beat the sound of a phalanx of over - cammed big blocks driving by.  Ahh.... music to my ears!  My only lament, it was the final day of the show.  I guess all good things must come to an end  Would a week long event be too much to ask for.

Before I bring you the highlights from Sunday, I'd like to circle back to Saturday and the track cruise that was open to all registered entrants.  How cool to be able to circle this historic track in America's greatest customs, classics and hot rods!  Because everyone wanted to be able to say they'd driven the famous Indy oval, it took over 3 hours to get everyone on track.  What a sight!

I've made mention of the Rod Father tour that made the pilgrimage from Cali to Indianapolis and the Speedway Nationals.  Well Sunday we were treated to the ultimate grand departure as nearly 100 hot rod gems headed out on their trip home.  Here are the Rod Fathers in their first mile of that trip home, only about 2,552 more to go!

Last but never least are the winners that are selected at the close of the weekend festivities.  I've said it several times before and I'll say it again, the folks at GoodGuys are faced with the unenviable task of choosing a handful of winners out a field of nearly 2,000 top notch rides.  Here are the lucky winners including the GoodGuys 2012 Hot Rod of the year winner, that Ford roadster is a stunner!

Stay tuned, I'm going to be bringing you tricked out trucks, high tech hot rods and one sleeper of a station wagon in the AutoCross coverage from the Speedway Nats.

I want to give a quick shout out and a big thank you to Bruce and Daryl for all your help at the Speedway Nats, I really appreciate it and had a great time.

Til the next time - Keep on Kruzin!
