About: “The Men’s Arts Council (MAC) created the event in 1990 as a fundraiser for Phoenix Art Museum and this event continues to set the benchmark for excellence. The finest vintage automobiles in the world have graced the scenic highways of Arizona during this annual four day event.

This annual event celebrates the automotive cultural legacy by featuring some of the finest working examples of vintage, sports, racing, classic and grand touring automobiles manufactured before the 1974 model year.

Each year a new route covers 1,000 miles of beautiful desert terrain, verdant river valley and alpine landscape throughout the state of Arizona and beyond.” https://www.mensartscouncil.com/cs/history/

There are a lot of local folks who drive their car down for the “Copperstate Roadrunner” which is the car show taking place at the same time as the start of the actual Rally. The cars inside the stadium are the ones going on the Rally.
