Goodguys Fuel Curve Top 10 of 2020 – #3 Heartland Nationals Weekend Rewind
Editor’s Note: No matter how you look at it, 2020 was a year that nobody expected, nor wished for. Event postponements, cancellations, social distancing, and more had old car enthusiasts out of sorts. Our scene revolves around gathering at events and showing off with others. We’re a community, even if don’t live near each other.
Thankfully, hot rodding is all about overcoming obstacles and making things better. Goodguys and Fuel Curve worked hard in 2020 to cover the altered landscape of the vintage car and truck scene, bringing you fresh and creative content every week – over 400 stories in total. We’re using the last few days of the year to revisit the Top 10 stories of the year. We hope you’ll enjoy this look back as we start to prepare for better times in 2021.
#3 – Weekend Rewind! 29th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals presented by BASF
The Goodguys semi-trucks sat idle for nearly five months through spring and early summer this past year until they were finally able to get the tires turning again. It was early March when COVID-19 put a halt to all outdoor events, and it was the July 4th weekend when the 29th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals presented by BASF in Des Moines, Iowa was Goodguys return to bringing you Cool Cars, Cool People, and Good Times!
A lot of work during a two-week time frame went into producing the event to ensure a safe gathering for everyone in attendance. At the time we were very thankful for the understanding and commitment to follow our new Goodguys Cares Health and Safety Guidelines by all of those in attendance in Iowa. Now looking back, the Heartland Nationals was a pivotal event in 2020 for Goodguys to safely move forward with the Salt Lake Nationals and Southwest Nationals events that were also held during the 2020 season.
