Radford Racing School, Petersen Museum Partner for Petersen to Scottsdale Rally

Radford Racing School and the Petersen Automotive Museum have entered into a collaboration to host the 2023 Petersen to Scottdale Rally from Jan. 26-30, the organizations announced.

Following a ride from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, rally participants will participate in an on-track experience at the Radford Racing School in Chandler, Arizona. The day will include a chance to explore the school’s 450-acre facility. The rally concludes at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale.

“Radford Racing School and the Petersen Automotive Museum are top destinations for auto fans from throughout the world,” said Pat Velasco, co-owner of the school. “Our collaboration will bring fans fresh, reimagined experiences.”

The partnership also features co-marketing initiatives, including rallies, exhibits, and enthusiast gatherings.  “The Southwest U.S. has a rich car history, culture, and enthusiasm. Petersen and Radford Racing School are deeply connected to the lure of this region and have helped foster this community. Traveling across this part of the country, as we head to Barrett-Jackson’s iconic collector car auction, is the ultimate way to arrive in Scottsdale,” said Tery Karges, executive director of the Petersen Automotive Museum. “Our mission is to continually evolve the automotive community, and this partnership epitomizes that vision.”
