The Goodguys Rod and Custom Association resumes its “AutoCross for Kids” program to benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer at the 7th Goodguys Spring Nationals, March 4-6 at WestWorld in Socttsdale, Arizona.

Event visitors have the opportunity to ride along with a professional driver on the autocross course for a $20 donation. Times to ride along are  Friday the 4th from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday the 6th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Austin Hatcher Foundation’s goal is to erase the effects of pediatric cancer for patients, survivors and their families. The partnership with Goodguys allows the foundation to educate children and adults on how to have and maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent cancer across the United States.

“The hot rod/car community is a huge family and having the Austin Hatcher Foundation in the fold again this year is a win-win for everyone.”  said Marc Meadors, president of Goodguys.
