Detroit Speed at Goodguys Nashville 2013 Recap
Mooresville, NC –http://goo.gl/JuVvZ Another quick trip down I-40 for Detroit Speed and the Test Cars resulted in another great weekend at LP field for the Goodguys 8th Nashville Nationals. Storms moved through Friday providing a wet start to the show but finished with two days of sunshine and a dry autocross track for some cone carving in the Test Cars.
A ten minute walk from the beautiful downtown Nashville scene saw hundreds of hot rods and thousands of spectators gather for what is quickly becoming one of the most popular shows on the Goodguys circuit. The autocross track was a hit for both spectators and drivers with crowds lining every inch of the fence separating the course from the fans. Detroit Speed co-owner and Pro-Class driver, Kyle Tucker, was out in full force in the DSE 1970 Camaro Test Car. He was eager to take home another 1st place while still taking the time to give interested customers a drive in the car to feel how the Detroit Speed suspension parts work. Detroit Speed Test Car manager and development driver, Matt Butts, was also on the track putting down some numbers in the DSE 1966 Mustang Test Car as well as our good friend Brian Finch and his DSE “Equipped” 1971 Camaro. During a weekend’s worth of racing and with times continually dropping throughout the event, Roger Burman and his DSE Equipped 1970 Camaro finished 1st place in the Pro Class with a blistering 35.55. Congratulations on the win Roger.
This is a date that is always circled when it comes to our yearly event schedule. Goodguys and the city of Nashville are always on top of their game and besides, we get to drive our muscle cars down one of the prettiest stretches of highway in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. We look forward to seeing everyone back again next year!
