Champions Arena to Host Top 12 Cars of the Year at 15th Southwest Nationals

In what has become an annual tradition at the Goodguys Southwest Nationals, the Top 12 Cars of the Year will be displayed together as a group inside the “Champions Arena” presented by the Street Rod Headquarters at the 15th Southwest Nationals November 16-18 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Top 12 winners will be coming in from all over America, giving fans an up close look at the country’s finest rods, customs, muscle cars and trucks. “It’s become one of the most popular event attractions at our events” said Goodguys VP of Event Operations Harry Daviess. “To have each major national Goodguys award winner parked inside the same arena is a rare and special opportunity not to be missed.”Adding to the uniqueness of the exhibit will be each winner’s custom toolbox from Snap-on. Each winner receives their toolbox in Scottsdale, wrapped with pictures of their ride.

The Champions Arena presented by Street Rod Headquarters will be located on the upper paved paddock at Westworld next to the giant exhibit tent. Don’t miss it! Here’s a look at all 5 of the 12 winners so far (all remaining winners will be announced no later than Friday October 12th here on Hot News).
