Gasoline alley and the entire infield of the Racing Capital of the World come alive with a giant show & shine, spectacular track cruise and the Goodguys All American Sunday Get-Together for late model American made or powered cars on Sunday Sept, 22rd. See over 2,500 ’72 & earlier rods, customs, muscle cars, trucks & classics, vendor exhibits, swap meet & car corral, Goodguys AutoCross, live music, model car show, Builder’s Choice awards and so much more! Take a picture with your rod, custom, muscle car or classic right on the bricks!
Giant Show & Shine!
Here’s your chance to park your hot rod, custom, classic, muscle car or truck in world famous Gasoline Alley near the iconic IMS Pagoda! The show & shine will sprawl throughout the entire Gasoline Alley and the Pagoda area as well as into the infield grass and other surrounding paddocks and road course. Bring your camera so you can document your car parked inside the internationally famous Brickyard! There’s lots of great infield cruise lanes too!
Hot Rod of the Year Competition!
The Goodguys 2013 Tanks Inc. Hot Rod of the Year will be awarded here in Indy! Hot Rods through 1948 vintage that wish to compete for this highly coveted award will need to report to the IMS Museum located in the infield Friday, September 20th @ 10am sharp! A special driving tour and 1/8th mile drag race @ Muncie Dragway are prerequisites for all competitors!
Phil & Jeremy Gerber and the Roadster Shop team will be on hand throughout the weekend to select the “Builder’s Choice” awards. The Gerber gang (former Goodguys Trendsetter award winners) will select 10 cars for Builder’s Choice awards. Make sure you’re parked in the Builder’s Choice parking area Saturday 9/21 from 7am-Noon! Over 100 other traditional and specialty awards will be offered including finalists for the Muscle Car of the Year, Custom Rod of the Year, Truck of the Year-Late and Muscle Machine of the Year!
The Hoosier State and Indianapolis in particular is buzzing with activity and cool family oriented attractions! The largest (and, according to Child magazine, the best) children’s museum in the world, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a huge, five-level playground where over one million kids and parents each year come to enjoy (seriously–it’s that kind of museum) science, history, art and culture! The kiddos will also love the Indianapolis Zoo! The Indianapolis Zoo (one of the nation’s Top 10, according to TripAdvisor) includes over 350 different animal species on its nearly 70 acres. If it’s a bustling college district you seek with cool restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and festive night life head to the Broad Ripple District! Of course a full tour of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is a “must” for any car guy or gal! There’s also brewery tour buses, and Indy car shop visit tours!
