It had been way too long since I had the opportunity to head over to the Goodguys Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and boy have I been missing out! Even though the weather ended up a mix of clouds with cold, warm, and sunny, it sure didn't discourage the huge crowd of both participants and spectators from enjoying big weekend of fun.

I have to admit, I was amazed at the huge amount of cool classic pickups in attendance. Sure, I knew that, being truck country, Texas classic truckers would show up in force, but there were high-caliber pickups everywhere I looked. I have to say, you guys made me proud to be counted among you as a fellow classic trucker.

With so many remarkable classic trucks on hand it literally took me half a day just to make my first circuit around the infield because every row of cool hot rods and custom cars was joined by way more than a handful of classic pickups.

As is the case at all Goodguys events, above and beyond literally thousands of cool classic trucks, street rods, customs, and muscle cars there was plenty of other features on hand as well. From the countless vendor displays to the swap meet and car corral, the Goodguys did their usual best to provide everyone a great time through the whole weekend.

Heck, they even invited Texas' own Richard Rawlings along with the crew from the Gas Monkey Garage. Rawlings and the crew mixed it up with fans throughout the day. The autocross action was hot and heavy right from the start of the event, and with Texas' autocross area being one of the largest of the year, the speeds were awesome and elapsed times low.

All in all it was a great weekend, as always – so let me shut my trap and let you enjoy these photos from a fantastic Goodguys weekend in the Lone Star State. Hope to see ya there later this season!
