The Copperstate 1000 Heads out for its 2017 Four Day Trek through the Arizona Desert

Phoenix, ARIZ. (April 2, 2017) – The vintage cars of the Bell Lexus Copperstate 1000 departed Tempe Diablo Stadium Sunday morning on its first leg of a four day journey through scenic Arizona.  Though these beautiful cars may look great on the grass of the ball field, they are spectacular to see out on the open road.

Sunday’s journey would take the drivers and their co-drivers 178,4 miles through Arizona’s back country, the likes of which haven’s been blessed by the sounds of these vintage beauties in some years.  Many of these drivers take full advantage of the open road to blow the carbon out of the cylinders.  With three more days left on the open roads, the vintage cars will return to the Valley Wednesday afternoon.

Along with the vintage cars of the Copperstate, a car corral was also held in the parking lot at Tempe Diablo Stadium.  Mesa’s Dirk Howard took his ’73 Mustang to the stadium to put on display.  While we were out on the route waiting on the cars, Dirk was able to grab photos of the cars on the field, the cars from the car corral and the Copperstate 1000 leaving the stadium.  Scroll down for photo galleries.

The Bell Lexus Copperstate 1000 is hosted by the Mens Arts Council of Phoenix Arts Museum.  The “Men’s Arts Council of Phoenix Art Museum is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that supports the programs and activities of the Museum through it’s unique events: the Bell Lexus North Scottsdale Copperstate 1000 vintage car road rally, the Southwest Double Gun Expo sporting clays target shooting event for people who appreciate and collect fine double shotguns, and the Copperstate Overland vintage off-road rally.  Click here to learn more about them.
