Kicking off the 2020 season will be a game-changing event – in addition to over 2,000 hot rods, customs, muscle cars, and classics, the Goodguys 10th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals, March 13-15 at Texas Motor Speedway will welcome everyone in the truck family.  Texas is truck country and this event pulls out all the stops for truck enthusiasts.  The Cup Garage at TMS will host a trucks-only shopping experience with companies catering to trucks, plus there will be a Trick Truck Corral presented by LMC Truck, a trucks-only AutoCross with Shootout events on Friday and Saturday, a trucks-only hour track cruise on Saturday…and the list goes on.

Griot’s Garage, the Tacoma, Washington-based creator of car care products for the perfectionists, takes on the presenting sponsor role for the Goodguys events in Raleigh, North Carolina and Loveland, Colorado, in addition to presenting the 33rd Pacific Northwest Nationals in Puyallup, Washington. In addition, Griot’s Garage will continue their support of the 2020 Griot’s Garage Muscle Machine of the Year.

Another noteworthy schedule change on the Goodguys 2020 event schedule includes a new date for the 15th Nashville Nationals, which will move to June 12-14 at Nissan Stadium along the banks of the Cumberland River. This event, previously held in May, will continue to feature the popular Tanks, Inc. Hot Rod of the Year competition.


The remaining 2020 events are scheduled for their traditional weekends, bringing together thousands of candy-colored hot rods, ground-pounding muscle cars, chrome-plated customs, stylish classics, and tricked-out trucks through 1987 vintage. The 1987-and-older cutoff will now extend to the 34th West Coast Nationals presented by BASF, which had previously been open to 1972-and-older vehicles.

Highlighting the 2020 schedule is the Goodguys 29th Speedway Motors Heartland Nationals in Des Moines, Iowa falling on 4th of July weekend – celebrating our nation’s independence with an epic car show in America’s Heartland – and the Goodguys 23rd PPG Nationals July 10-12 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus celebrating Collector Car Appreciation Day on Sunday July, 12th.
