(Bowling Green, KY) Goodguys and the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will take to the

AutoCross track to host the AutoCross for kids Program at the Goodguys 4th Nostalgia Nationals,

September 18-20 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, KY. Event attendees will have the chance to

ride with a Pro driver on the AutoCross course—a closed performance race course—for a suggested

donation of $20 to the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. The AutoCross for kids program

will run on Friday and Sunday during the event AutoCross hours, 8 am to 5 pm on Friday and 8 am to 1

pm on Sunday.

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer have

announced a partnership to raise funds and awareness for the Foundation’s mission to erase the effects

of pediatric cancer for patients, survivors and their families. The partnership will provide the

Foundation with opportunities to educate both children and adults about healthy lifestyles that prevent

cancer, as well as provide much needed-therapies, in a variety of cities throughout the United States.

The interactive part of this program is a fun offer to event attendees to ride with a Pro Driver for a great

cause.

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, the Pleasanton, CA based producer of some of the world’s most

dynamic automotive events for more than three decades, will work in conjunction with the Foundation

at several Goodguys shows in 2015. Association members and show attendees will have opportunities

to contribute to the efforts through donations, the purchase of limited edition merchandise and

participation in the “AutoCross for Kids”, as well as volunteering for some of the program’s initiatives.

“Goodguys events are family events,” said Marc Meadors, President, Goodguys Rod & Custom

Association. “The hot rod/car community is a huge family and bringing the Austin Hatcher Foundation

into the fold is a win-win for everyone.” We hope to do great things for them this year through the

AutoCross for Kids promotion in raising awareness and funds in the fight against pediatric cancer.”

In addition to the AutoCross for kids program and the AutoCross racing competition, this event will

showcase three days of vintage drag racing on the quarter mile, over 1,500 cars and trucks through 1972

vintage—plus all years American made and powered vehicles welcome, exhibits, used auto parts swap

meet, AutoTrader Classics Cars for sale corral, special feature parking areas on Saturday, food booths,

awards ceremony and much more for the entire family.
