It’s no secret that AutoCross has become a big deal for both participants and spectators alike, at major events across country. Goodguys has stepped up to the plate and taken the AutoCross phenomenon one step further as you can see in the video above.
The Goodguys Rod and Custom Association has announced that there will be a year-long national AutoCross Shoot-Out at 11 of the organization’s national events culminating with the Year-End Shoot Out Finals that will decide the 2013 championship. The final event which is presented by BF Goodrich Tires will be held Saturday, November 16, 2013 at the Goodguys 16th Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale Arizona.
