My husband and I live down the street. There is 2 events every year. The lay out is great and only minutes away from food and every other retail company to shop and relax. And although hundreds visit from all over, the Avondale police department makes sure getting in and out is safe and easy.

Two years ago, the gals in my family bought a driving experience for our husbands. Well this time I wanted to get in on the action! My husband and I exchanged these as X-mas gifts. He went for the 8 lap driving experience. Mine was a 3 lap ride along with a professional driver. Guess who went faster on the... More

Great racetrack! Make sure you have hearing protection, when those race cars start the sound bounces off the mountains surrounding the track and it will blow you away. Well organized, lots to see and experience at the NASCAR race. Just like EVERY race it's crazy trying to leave.... So my best advice is stay at the track for a couple... More

I have attended several NASCAR races at PIR I highly recommend that you camp at the track that way you don't have to fight the traffic. Great flat track racing. Good range of prices from the cheap hill side (bring you own seats) to the grand stands every year PIR gets better And better

I enjoyed the race but they really need to work on how to get people out of the lot. We sat in the queue for 2 hours before they turned up around and then we sat in line for another hour going the opposite direction. If I could only go to one of the 2 races that are within reach... More

First experienced driving a NASCAR last spring and had to come back. All the staff are friendly and welcoming. Make you feel part of the team. The instruction focuses on safety and is very detailed. Pay close attention. Some of the fire suits look like they have been around for a while but are effective. If you are a first... More

The Phoenix Speedway is 50 years old and you can certainly tell it. My biggest gripe, he lack of enough restrooms. When you have over 50 thousand people, you really need to have the facilities to handle everyone. Overall experience being ok, would go again. As we had a package deal race hotel and bus to and from race. Careful... More

This is a great little racetrack. Love that the track is actually so close to the stands. First time visit here so we are comparing this to LVMS which is a little more modern than this track but we totally loved our visit! Fans were well behaved and totally focused on the race so I felt as though I were... More
