Vintage Desert Classic
at ISM Raceway
Avondale, Arizona

The 2018 Vintage Desert Classic, presented by the Classic Racing Times in cooperation with the Verizon Indycar Series at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, is in the books.  The event brought together more than three dozen of the beautiful vintage race cars that are the centerpieces of CRT events, as well as several of the great Indy drivers from years gone by, including our special guest this year, Steve Chassey.

The Classic Racing Times was honored to be able to bring to the weekend several prominent cars from the career of Mario Andretti as the track marked the 25th anniversary of Mario’s final Indycar victory.

The Phoenix event also included the 100-lap Phoenix Copper Cup for the USAC Silver Crown Series, won by Bobby Santos, as well as, of course, the 250-lap Phoenix Grand Prix for the Verizon Indycar Series, won by Josef Newgarden.

With the Verizon Indycar Series not returning to Phoenix in 2019, negotiations are ongoing as to what role the Classic Racing Times and the Vintage Desert Classic will play at ISM Raceway in 2019.  Check back during the winter months for announcements concerning our full 2019 schedule.
