Racing School and Automotive Museum Partner for ‘Petersen to Scottsdale Rally’

Radford Racing School and the Petersen Automotive Museum have entered into a collaboration to bring premium automotive experiences to participants in the 2023 Petersen to Scottsdale Rally, Jan. 26-30, 2023.

Following a ride from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, rally participants will enjoy an immersive track experience at the Radford Racing School in Chandler, Ariz. The day will include a chance to explore the school’s legendary 450-acre facility, which features more than 85 race-ready Dodge SRT vehicles and state-of-the-art open-wheel Ligier JS Formula 4 race cars. The rally concludes at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale. Registration for the four-day Scottsdale Rally is now open here.

“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.”

The Petersen Automotive Museum Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to exploring and presenting the history of the automobile and its impact on global life and culture using Los Angeles as the prime example. The museum is located at 6060 Wilshire Blvd. (at Fairfax) in Los Angeles, California 90036.
