Oracle – The votes are all in from the judges and one vehicle came out on top with a Best of Show win from the 27th annual Oracle Spring Run Car Show held this past weekend in Oracle.

Phil Camp and his 1959 Chevy Bel-Air were crowned as the top winner at the car show. Phil drove his beautiful car down from Roosevelt to participate in this car show, only his second.
