From little deuce coupes to lead sled Mercury customs, the K&N Filters Goodguys Southeastern Nationals Oct. 29-31 at Charlotte Motor Speedway will be a literal automotive smorgasbord.

The 11th year of this wildly popular show will see the California-based Goodguys organization bring more than 3,000 pre-1972 hot rods, street rods, customs, classics, muscle cars and trucks to Charlotte Motor Speedway from across the country.

Also included in the weekend¿the fastest growing show on the Goodguys calendar'is a manufacturer¿s midway, model car and pedal car show and a chance to ride around the famous 1.5-mile oval at 130-plus miles per hour in the passenger seat of an authentic NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race car.

Saturday night will see the return of the popular "Cruise Under the Lights," where more than 1,000 hot rods and customs will take to the 1.5-mile superspeedway for several laps.

"For automotive aficionados, the Goodguys Southeastern Nationals is like a fine art show," said H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. "These brightly colored and finely crafted rods, customs and classics are works of art on canvases of steel, aluminum and fiberglass."
