Cruises and Parties Returning to Goodguys 11th FiTech Spring Nationals This Weekend!

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association invades Scottsdale, AZ this weekend for the 11th FiTech Spring Nationals event and they are gearing up for a fantastic weekend in the Valley of the Sun!

The weekend activities will kick off on Thursday with a Hot Rod Cruise around the North Phoenix region. The roughly 40-mile route will make four stops at local hot rod shops and give you an opportunity to get behind the wheel of your own classic for some midday cruising with old friends and new. The cruise will depart WestWorld of Scottsdale Thursday morning at 10am from the registration parking lot. Maps and stop locations will be provided Thursday morning.



Goodguys is also bringing a TGIF party to the Spring Nationals event by teaming up with Tony Arme and his American Legends Hot Rods and Muscle Cars shop. Arme recently moved into a new shop location, so this party is doubling as an Grand Opening event. American Legends is known for their “out of the box” thinking with a twin-turbo Ferrari swapped ’68 Mustang, and they’re also wrapping up a Duramax Diesel-powered ’57 Chevy. We can’t wait to see what else they have brewing in the shop!

The Hot Rod Cruise and TGIF party are just the icing on the cake for the rest of the Goodtimes Goodguys has lined up for this weekend. Over 2,000 hot rods, muscle cars, classic trucks, and customs will fill the WestWorld venue paired with the Goodguys CPP AutoCross series, packed vendor midways, a burnout competition, vintage Nitro Thunderfest dragster action, fun activities for the kids, and much more!

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
