Fans attending the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix at Phoenix Raceway can receive an autograph from some of their favorite former IndyCar drivers at the Vintage Autograph Session Presented by Classic Racing Times on Saturday, April 29.

From 12:30-1:30 p.m., all ticketed guests can line up inside the Gates at the entrance to Corporate Village near Gate 4 to collect a free autograph from some of IndyCar’s legendary drivers including Arie Luyendyk, Dick Simon, Lyn St. James, Tom Sneva and Derek Daly. Fans will also be able to check out two of the vintage Classic Racing Times vehicles that will be on display.

Classic Racing Times will also present the Vintage Desert Classic as part of the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix weekend on April 28-29. The addition to Phoenix Raceway’s Ultimate Open-Wheel weekend will feature two on-track sessions ahead of the Verizon IndyCar Series race on April 29.

Some of the most legendary cars in open-wheel racing history will be displayed, both on and off the track, as part of the Vintage Desert Classic. Newly added cars include the 1961 Brabham Cooper Philippe driven by Formula 1 World Champion Sir Jack Brabham, which changed the face of racing forever as the first successful modern day rear engine car at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Also appearing at Phoenix Raceway will be the 1939 Sparks-Thorne Engineering "Little Six" No. 10. Owned by Joe Freeman, this car picked up the pole at the 1939 Indianapolis 500 driven by Jimmy Snyder, and went on to finish all 200 laps for the second place finish behind only Wilbur Shaw.

The Vintage Desert Classic will take place along with both the USAC Silver Crown Series and the Quarter Midget races ahead of the Verizon IndyCar Series Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix. Fans looking to get an up close and personal look at the cars themselves can access the Vintage Desert Classic paddock with a Garage and Pit Pass for only $50.  Grandstand tickets are available online at PhoenixRaceway.com, by phone at 1-866-408-RACE (7223) or in person at the Phoenix Raceway ticket office.
