GoodGuys Del Mar Nationals Recap

Well, the GoodGuys Del Mar Nationals Editors Challenge is in the books, and our man Larry was on the scene to represent us well.  Jeff Smith (Car Craft Magazine) was the hot shoe of the day and took home the trophy, so congrats to Jeff….and we’ll plan to dominate you next year! :)

In the Pro class Mary Pozzi edged out Mike Maier for the win, claiming her spot for the year end GoodGuys Autocross Shootout Finals (which will happen in November). It was a back and forth battle that went down to the very end, and luckily for us Larry was able to snag an interview with BOTH Mary and Mike afterwards (see below)! During the event Larry was actually able to grab a few sound clips from several other competitors at the event, all of which we’ve included in the show.

Clip #1  – Rob McGregor – Crazy Shorts Day

Clip #2 – Dan “The Man” Weishaar – Driving the Hotchkis car

Clip #3 – Jeff Smith from Car Craft Magazine – Winner of the 2013 Goodguys Editors Challenge

Clip #4 – Bret Voelkel from Ridetech – Let the editors beat on his Camaro

Clip #5 – Mary Pozzi and Mike Maier – Pro Class ShootoutMary Pozzi wins the third spot in the Goodguys Autocross Shootout Finals.

Also at the event, Greg Blundell won the Muscle Machine of the Year Finalist for his ‘69 Camaro. Congrats, Greg!
