The beautiful setting of Beach Bend Raceway and Amusement Park was home for the Goodguys 5th Nostalgia Nationals that was held in October of 2016. This three-day event was open to pre-1972 vehicles and over 1,500 registered vehicles took part in this awesome show.
The three days of non-stop action started on Friday when the participants could take part the show and shine, check out the vendors midway, wander through the swap meet area or see if they or their vehicle had the right skills to take part in the Goodguys AutoCross. The Goodguys AutoCross was a lot of fun for those that took part in it plus it benefited the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.
Nostalgia Drags started on Friday night and was open to pre-1979 racecars & trucks. For three days the Nostalgia Drags was the scene of some serious competition and the opportunity for spectators to see some old school racing.
All American Sunday was a great way to wrap up this event and was sponsored by K&N Filters. This one-day of the Goodguys show was open to all 2016 and earlier American made and or powered vehicles. What a great way to wrap up what was an all around great show for the participants and spectators alike.
