There’s no doubt the Phoenix metro area is a car fans hub of activity.
Phoenix has become one of a few epicenters of auction activity during the year and new events and gatherings help keep the fun alive.
Also happening this weekend is the Windgate Ranch Festival of Speed. This is the third year of this petrol-head gathering where donations and entry fees help the nonprofit 100 Club of Arizona. After having a cup of coffee at one of the Penske events, head on over to Windgate Ranch to help a good cause.
The press release for the Penske events follows…
