Vintage Cars stretch their legs as participants in the 2016 Copperstate 1000 begin their journey

The 2016 Copperstate 1000 kicks off from Tempe Diablo Staduim on Sunday

Tempe, ARIZ. (April 10, 2016) – Dozens, passengers and their vintage time pieces of automotive history began their trek around Arizona’s back roads today as they headed out on the first leg of the Bell Lexus North Scottsdale Copperstate 1000.

A big shout out to the Arizona Department of Public Safety for escorting and securing these rides.

This morning, drivers and passengers left the green grass of the field of Tempe Diablo Stadium to take part in the four day drive around the Copper State.  Escorted by motor officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, participants in the 2016 Copperstate 1000 will make their way through numerous Arizona cities and towns as they take part in this unique road rally.

With scattered showers throughout the state on Sunday, some driver had it better than others.  Convertible drivers had their tops up, coupes were ready to go, but it was those in the roadsters that had it the worst.  Though drivers were concentrated on the road, we saw several co-drivers doing their best to stay dry as they began their journey.

Some of the cars participating in the Copperstate 1000 are extremely rare and cannot be see anywhere else.  The Bell Lexus North Scottsdale Copperstate 1000 will roll back into the Valley of the Sun on Wednesday, April 13 at the Westin Kierland between 4 & 6 PM.  If you missed the Field of Dreams car show and would like to take part in Arizona’s automotive history, the roll in to the Westin Kierland on Wednesday is the place to be.
