Fans of motorsports won’t want to miss the upcoming Checkered Flag Run Weekend in Phoenix, Arizona, as the event combines a traditional bike show with all the excitement of a live NASCAR event.
This year’s event is hosted by the Second II None Motorcycle Club of Phoenix and will take place at the Talking Stick Resort and Casino. The action kicks off Friday, February 25th, where those registered for the run can check-in and kick back at a late-night party.
Saturday features a full day of events, as guests will automatically be signed up for a picnic and featuring a live music performance by DJ Kid Capri. There will be plenty of raffles and other events taking place throughout the day, and visitors can also enjoy the amenities at the resort, casino and surrounding city of Phoenix.
It all leads up to the big run on Sunday. The Checkered Flag Run is a sheriff-escorted trip from the resort to the Phoenix International Speedway, where the entire group of bikers will ride in to watch the Subway Fresh Fit 500, a NASCAR Sprint Series event that’s scheduled to feature legends like Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Jimmie Johnson.
