Kyle Tucker Takes 2nd Place in the Goodguys Pro Class Autocross at the First Event of the Year in Scottsdale

Mooresville, NC – You really couldn’t ask for a more picture perfect weekend to kick off the Goodguys first event of the season. Temperatures were perfect nestling up in the high 80’s and staying there the entire weekend. The show was even larger than last year with over 2,200 cars packing the polo field and upper paddocks. There was also an on-site video tribute to the late founder of Goodguys, Gary Meadors that was held inside the Montara building overlooking the show.


The autocross action was high intensity all three days. Kyle Tucker, driving the Detroit Speed 1970 Camaro Test Car, ran hard all weekend but couldn’t quite get to the top spot in the Pro Class. That was reserved for Scott Fraser driving Bruce Cambern’s original AC Cobra and couldn’t be caught. There were over 14 drivers in the Pro Class for the first event which is a fantastic turnout. There were also several drivers in the Street Machine Class. Adam Watkins won the Street Machine Class and was promoted to the Pro Class, great driving Adam.


It was a great first event of 2016. The team at Goodguys always puts on a great show. Keith is now all packed up and on his way to the next event, the Goodguys 6th Spring Lone Star Nationals in Fort Worth, TX. We hope to see you out there!
