Friday First Look! 27th Summit Racing Lone Star Nationals

The 27th running of the Summit Racing Lone Star Nationals kicked off today at Texas Motor Speedway with a packed house of hot rods, customs, muscle cars, and pickup trucks filling the infield. Add in industry-leading manufactures, fun activities for the kids, beautiful weather, and NASCAR stock cars ripping around the high-banked track and day one got the weekend off to a great start!

Today’s momentum will roll into tomorrow for a big day in Texas! The Specialty Parking Area’s will be bursting at the seams including the Builders Choice area being selected by Customs and Hot Rods of Andice for the first time. Harold Chapman is excited to make his first Top 10 picks after Kenny Davis passed the torch over at the end of last year.


The Summit Super Shopper Experience that took over an entire Cup Garage was jammed packed today with vendors showcasing their latest products and provided an escape from the Texas heat. Tomorrow Chip Foose will be on-site at the Magnaflow booth signing autographs from 10-noon & 2-4pm. We’ll have the Big Hoss Shootouts going down on the AutoCross track, hot rods cruising the Texas Motor Speedway high banks, the final “Of The Year” awards for the 2019 running handed out for both Truck Early & Late, Muscle Car, and Muscle Machine, and plenty more with live music, a burnout contest, and Nitro Thunderfest action.

Until then, here’s a peek of some of the cool rides we stumbled upon today – stay tuned to Goodguys social media outlets for more throughout the weekend!

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.
