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.

Oval with sight lines great. Enjoyed 2017 indy practice and time trails. That said a 1 3/4 hour break with nothing going on on track is not acceptable . Friday practice and trials need to keep fan focused and wanting to see what is "next"....More

I am confused. We have been paying for our tickets/RV parking at times 8 months out. Just got confirmation that our RV spots will be larger (price is surely increasing) and no more non-reserved. This information is for a race in 7 months. Yet we...More

Amazing weekend of NASCAR!! The Camping World 500 in March was excellent. We stayed in the reserved RV section - B56 - which is a excellent close slot. Getting there was easy; we arrived on the Friday afternoon, around 3pm and there were no queues...More

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.
