Owner description: 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.

“Intense racing”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Event well sign posted from Phoenix. Get to the car park early and then its not to far to walk. Facilities are well organised, clean and lots of food options. View of the track is good.NASCAR great.

“A real NACSCR gem”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

I have only been for NASCAR events so cannot comment on any other activities at the track. Sure the parking is a bit of a pain but if you are not in a rush it is fine. If you are in a bit of a rush park off premisis and take a shuttle in. The view from the grandstands is very good since the track is only a mile. I have walked the entire track during a race and looked at things from the mountain, at both ends of the track and on the backstretch. I enjoy all views. Nothing fancy but fan friendly.

Reviewed June 15, 2012

First time there and found it to be exciting as it was a Nascar race and the grounds were clean and the people in attendance were both friendly and courteous.
