Goodguys AutoCross got its start eight years ago in 2006. Ridetech founder Bret Voelkel brought his “Street Challenge” AutoCross program and timing equipment to the Goodguys Nashville Nationals that year to see if it would offer an exciting alternative to normal show & shine activity. “Basically, I grew tired of sitting in a lawn chair,” Voelkel quipped.
To say it caught on is a gross understatement! It exploded to the forefront and today is a huge part of what a Goodguys event is all about. If offers action, excitement, noise and grueling competition in a user-friendly platform.
The best news? EVERYONE who enters a car at a Goodguys event can run the course and participate for FREE! The only pre requisite being your vehicle must pass a basic safety inspection. The rules are pretty straight forward and relatively basic – DOT tires with a tread wear limited to 200 are mandatory. So are seatbelts. You can’t be an idiot. Sound good? You’re in!
