Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, the world’s largest hot rod association and producer of car shows, has moved its office headquarters from Pleasanton, California, to inside the 10-story Lone Star Tower overlooking Turn Two of Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. The move marks the end of a two-decade-long residency in the Bay Area, during which the company experienced the most significant period of growth in its 39-year history.

Nicknamed “The Great American Speedway,” the facility in Fort Worth provides a more synergistic location for the expanding association, which began its event series in 1983 as a one-day get-together for Bay Area builders. While new tenants to the speedway, 2022 is the 25th year Goodguys has hosted a show at the venue. The Goodguys event series has since expanded to host 15-22 multiday events nationwide, attracting approximately 50,000 show cars and 500,000 spectators annually. The events have also evolved to feature an incredibly diverse range of vehicles and motorsports-oriented activities, including exhibitions, cruises, and a full autocross series. They are also family friendly, with food, entertainment, and activities for all ages.
