Maricopa’s annual Motor Sports Day seeks wheels


Car collectors, builders, racers and other motor sports enthusiasts are invited to show off a favorite set of wheels at the Third Annual Maricopa Motor Sports Day, an annual event hosted by car aficionado Steve Barcak.

The event takes place at the First Baptist Church, 18705 N. John Wayne Parkway on Saturday, April 9.

“There is nothing else like this in Maricopa,” Barcak said.

There is no fee to include a vehicle in the show and every person who displays a vehicle is treated to a free hot lunch. Participants will have the opportunity to win prizes in 10 different categories.

“This is the first year we will be handing out awards, so it should be really exciting,” Barcak said.

At a typical car show, a panel of judges awards the prizes, but at this show the collectors will be the judges.

“Everyone who enters a car will be able to vote for the winners,” Barcak said.

Spectators are asked to bring a can of food to help support the church’s food bank as the price of admission.

Besides cars, the event will include food, music and activates for children.
