Goodguys Cares Protocols Moving into the 2021 Goodguys Season

With the 2021 Goodguys season kickoff event just 5 weeks away, reviewing the “Goodguys Cares” health & safety guidelines is a top priority for everyone as we prepare to produce America’s Favorite Car Shows in the new year. 2020 may be in the rear-view mirror, but the reality is that we are still in the midst of a pandemic.

As Goodguys moves forward in to the 2021 season, one positive is that additional health and safety measures are no longer a new thing for us, or you, in our everyday lives. On the event side, our staff is accustomed to enforcing additional event safety protocols and working even closer with various state, county and city government and health departments in acquiring event approval, while still being able to host a fun, safe, and enjoyable event. We can happily report that even with the challenges 2020 brought, Goodguys was able to host three successful events in Des Moines, Salt Lake City, and Scottsdale. Our “Goodguys Cares” health & safety guidelines were a key factor in getting the needed approvals for those events, as well as being able to execute them safely for all in attendance.

As we look ahead, it is certain that the “Goodguys Cares” program will be in effect for all spring and early-summer events in 2021. As more information is learned and distributed about the COVID-19 virus, as well as the number of vaccinations administered both regionally and nationally, Goodguys will continue to work with local health officials to continually evaluate the current status and guidelines in place in our host markets and subsequently make any changes to our “Goodguys Cares” protocols for each event as necessary and dictated by law.

In addition to face coverings being required at all Goodguys events, you will continue to see additional hand washing stations placed throughout the event, hand sanitizer available in strategic locations, regular restroom cleanings throughout the weekend, physical distancing markers and more.

During this past offseason, the Goodguys ticketing & registration team has worked tirelessly in their quest to develop and implement contactless payment options not only at the at the Goodguys registration office and ticket booths, but also at our merchandise locations and we will launch these efforts beginning at the 11th LMC Truck Spring Lone Star Nationals March 12-14, 2021.

With your cooperation and support of the “Goodguys Cares” health & safety guidelines, Goodguys feels confident that more events on the 2021 schedule will go on as planned resulting in the Goodguys Goodtimes you’ve come to expect over the past 38 years!

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.
