Goodguys 2nd Kentucky Nationals in Lexington Happening This Weekend!

The second annual Goodguys Kentucky Nationals is going down this weekend October 11-13 at the Kentucky Horse Park in beautiful Lexington and the buzz is booming as we roll into year two of this new event! The Kentucky Horse Park is a beautiful facility cut in the middle of rolling green hills and provides plenty of room all the activities Goodguys has to offer.

We’ll get the weekend kicked off on the right foot with a Hot Rod Cruise on Thursday leaving the event grounds at 11am and roaming the backroads of Kentucky checking out the beautiful scenery as well as some local hot rod shops and historic stops along the way. We’ll end the cruise at Shelby’s Speed & Kustom for a kickoff party going down from 4pm-8pm – last year Shelby’s Speed & Kustom hosted the kickoff party and it was a happenin’ evening with the streets lined with hot rods and classics as far as the eye could see!


The all-weekend action going down in Kentucky will include Goodguys AutoCross racing where championship points battles in all classes are coming down to the wire with only two events left in 2019. We’ll add in a sprawling swap meet and cars for sale corral, an indoor car show which will also include the kid’s area, industry manufacturers packing the vendor midway, and live nostalgia entertainment from local bands rockin on the stage.

On Saturday we’ll add in a Burnout Contest, the “Southern Shootout” for the top 16 AutoCross racers to compete head-to-head, Jesse Greening will be making his Top 10 Builders Choice picks, and we’ll also crown the first Muscle Car of the Year Finalist for the 2020 running.
