Arizona Car Shows, Swap Meets & Races – March 13 – 19





I definitely wish I was in Arizona this past week. Usually by this time of year in Northern California, the rain is pretty rare and we start to see more and more shows. Not this year! We had a little event near my office and only about 8 cars showed up. I will share some pictures below.

In Arizona, it seems like every week there are more and more events. I am very grateful for all the emails I get with information on Car Shows, it’s a huge help. If you hear of an upcoming event, please email me at:

Did anyone go to the NASCAR Cup Series race yesterday? Kyle Larson is from the Sacramento area and we watched him race when he was very young but it wasn’t his day. Alex Bowman from Tucson got his 4th Top Ten finish in a row and is in first place in the Point Standings.
