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.

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 you have never been, you must go for a NASCAR experience. People are all friendly and you can stay there for the weekend (in an RV...). If you have never been - I would recommend that you go for one or both of the...More

Experiencing our first NASCAR races here this weekend in the RV lot. Some of it has been fun, but hard for first-time visitors and old people like us. Lot to see and do, but never having been here before, difficult to find where things are....More

PIR does a great job of bringing in a lot of racing and entertainment throughout the weekend. Some of the best racing facilities in the country is at PIR. Will be back soon and glad they are bringing the Copper Classic back in April.

Trying to purchase tickets online was not a good experience. I spent several days looking section by section, using their really cool view from your seat application looking for just the right seats for my party of 4. Finally, I settled upon the Foyt Grandstand,...More

Parking and entry was free for practice. The restrooms were very clean. The security staff at the autograph session were rude, disrespectful and a disgrace. There was no reason for such behavior!

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.
