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.

Lots of walking involved especially with a pit pass, but for my first nascar experience it was pretty awesome, especially in the first row of seating right before the finish line.

We love coming here, meet our family and friends here. Camping is always fun, except this year. Some jerks stole our generator. Be sure to use heavy chains, our cable was cut clean. Probably not a race fan. Most likely jerks not into racing, thieves...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.
