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.

The track was closed to the public but the security guard allowed us to walk up Rattlesnack Hill to check out a full view of the track and take pictures. It was great! You really could appreciate the beauty of the area and size of the track. You could sit there and enjoy the view.

We were in town for our third Nascar race. As always it was a fun experience. Each time we know a little more of the 'ropes' and it helps. The track is easily located by signs. The restrooms are clean and well-staffed. Merchandise was priced as I would expect for this type of event, as was food and beverage. My... More

This was our 2nd visit to the track. It was great both Saturday and Sunday. Easy to access trailers for pit passes. Everything is well marked and great traffic control. We stayed on the west side of the track and were in and out in 20 minuets. Fabulous!

As expected the attendance increased as it got closer to Sunday but the track personnel seemed to have a good handle on making everything work.We would make a point of attending... More

I attended my first NASCAR Sprint Cup race this past weekend after being a diehard fan for twenty plus years. The Zoomtown experience was beyond belief! Budweiser Roll Bar, food, vendors and the race!! Our son had bought our tickets, had us on the start/finish line almost on the top row. Great seats! I have a bad knee and could... More

This was the first time I have been at the race track. It was awesome. Everyone was friendly and the amenities were great. I would highly recommend this track. The racing was great. Next year in the fall they are doing some improvements so I can't wait to see what they do.
