Overview
More
Since 1964, Phoenix International Raceway has been the premier motorsports venue in the Southwest. Founded as an open-wheel racing mecca, PIR was proud to host the Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix Verizon IndyCar Series race under the lights in April. Phoenix is the only track in the West to feature two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekends a year, beginning with the Good Sam 500 race weekend in March. The schedule is anchored by the upcoming Can-Am 500 race weekend in November, the semifinal race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup after which the field will be reduced to the final four championship contenders.

Construction ongoing on the new facility. Should be really exciting, fans areas might be a little confusing for a bit, but in the long run, will really be worth it!

If I recall correctly, the access path to the hill is outside of the ticket collection gate. Pretty sure you can get to the hill without buying a ticket.
