Goodguys 2018 Kentucky Nationals Photo Extra!

The Kentucky Nationals held in Lexington was a new event for Goodguys in 2018. There was plenty to show from this new, scenic venue that didn’t make the latest pages of the February Gazette so we’re here to expand on the coverage with a Kentucky Nationals Photo Extra!

A different kind of “horse” took over the spacious Kentucky Horse Park in mid-October – and that was Horsepower! Thousands of cool customs, HOT hot rods, classic trucks and powerful muscle cars rolled in for a full weekend of Good Times.

With added activities such as a hot rod cruise ‘round town and kickoff party on Thursday, to the live music, exciting kids’ games, a tire-smoking burnout contest, AutoCross racing, a massive swap meet and more the weekend happenin’s kicked off early and didn’t seem to end!

The state of Kentucky has been well known for thoroughbreds, bluegrass, bourbon, and college basketball – but Goodguys will be taking over again in 2019! See for yourself by joining us October 11-13, 2019 for the 2nd Kentucky Nationals in Lexington!
