Lookin’ Back…Goodguys 2nd WIX Filters Speedway Nationals

-The Indianapolis Motor Speedway provided a dramatic backdrop for the Goodguys 2nd WIX Filters Speedway Nationals

Last weekend’s Goodguys 2nd WIX Filters Speedway Nationals turned into a gorgeous fall weekend of hot rodding in the upper Midwest. The car count was up slightly from last year’s inaugural event and tens of thousands of revelers came out to witness the spectacle of over 2,500 cars sprawled throughout the infield of Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Making the event even more memorable was the Rodfather/Goodguys Road Tour – a group of 108 hot rodders who traveled over 2,500 miles together as a group to the Speedway. Led by Andy Brizio and Gary Meadors, the tour and its numerous stops along the way turned into what many called “The trip of a lifetime!” To see all of the tour recap videos and photos, visit www.rodfathertour.com

Jack and Troy Trepanier were onsite to make the Builder’s Choice awards while on Sunday – Tom Gloy’s ’32 Ford roadster won the Goodguys 2012 Tank’s Hot Rod of the Year award. To see the complete list of all Speedway Nationals award winners, click here.
