The Goodguys Heartland Nationals show in Des Moines, Iowa had an excellent turnout for its 24th year. With great weather and an estimated 4400 cars, the central location pulled attendees from over 28 states. RideTech driver Chris Smith was present in the Spectre Performance equipped 48-Hour Chevy Corvette and pushed it to the limits during three full days of autocross.

Chris Smith finished the weekend with a respectable second place finish behind Mike Dusold out of a field of a dozen cars in the PRO class. Smith was in good company, as the top five names on the leaderboard for the PRO class remained the same all weekend. Between Chris Smith, Mike Dusold, Dale Schwartz, Josh Leisinger, and Ridetech's Britt Marolf, the competition was stiff. Throughout the weekend, nearly 50 cars competed in the autocross action.
