As we are rapidly approaching the July 2020 NAPA Auto Parts Syracuse Nationals show date, we have made the very difficult decision, after careful consideration, to postpone this year’s show, and reconnect with everyone in-person next July 16, 17, and 18, 2021.
The health and safety of our participants, vendors, sponsors and more than 90,000 attendees has always been our number one priority. With that being said, we have decided that the risks of having this event, outweigh the benefits of opening our gates this year.
Making this decision was inevitable after also recognizing that, even if all the restrictions have been lifted by our scheduled show time and we could assure the health and safety of everyone attending, it is not possible for us to put into place all the elements required to execute the quality event we are known for. We are so disappointed that we will not be able to see you all this July, however, we know this is the right thing to do based on the current information we have about this unprecedented global situation.
To our currently registered show car owners, campers and vendors:
We will be automatically rolling over your 2020 deposits and payments to the 2021 show. If you need to cancel your reservations and would like to receive a refund please contact our office, by phone or email beginning Tuesday June 2nd through Tuesday June 30, 2020. The deadline to request your refund is June 30th, 2020. If we do not hear from you by June 30th we will send your 2021 confirmation letter automatically. Please find our contact information here: Postponement FAQs
Looking Ahead and sharing some good news:
We have decided that today is good day to announce that we have been working with The New York State Fair on a renewed 5-year contact, which keeps us housed at the Fairgrounds through 2025.
We will be using this time to plan and prepare for an amazing 2021 Syracuse Nationals Show, excited to find new elements to add.
Additionally, we have broadened the scope of eligible show cars to include cars 30 years or older. For the 2021 show, that will include cars 1991 and older. Implementing a rolling 30-year and older rule allows our show the ability to showcase new cars each year.
To stay connected with our fans and followers, we will continue our weekly Facebook Live broadcasts, discussing classic cars, industry trends, hosting celebrities and sharing Syracuse Nationals News.
Registrations and reservations for the 2021 Syracuse Nationals will begin by phone and online July 1, 2020.
To everyone who has called, emailed, messaged and sent good thoughts to us during this difficult time. We appreciate your positive and encouraging support and are more aware than ever that we have such an amazing network of people. We look forward to seeing everyone next July.
With Sincere Gratitude,
Rob O’Connor, President, Right Coast Inc., and Team
