Every year Goodguys hosts more than 20 events, ranging from two-day affairs attended by 30,000 to 40,000 people to three- and four-day extravaganzas attracting over 100,000 auto enthusiasts.

The sponsorship agreement includes WIX as the title sponsor at the 1st WIX Filters Speedway Nationals at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sept. 16-18.
