Catching The Races At The Phoenix International Raceway

For those of you who would like to “rev up” your family weekend, take a drive to Phoenix International Raceway.

The short drive to Avondale and the winding road back into the raceway is a great way to start the adventure. You will find that parking is quite easy and is just a short walk into the raceway. Once inside, the hum from the garages and the rumble of the race engines begin the excitement and the countdown to the Green flag.

If you have the opportunity to get into the garage and pit area before the races, I would highly recommend it for children to get a “behind the scenes” view of what it really takes to prep the cars, drivers and crew for the big race. The staff at PIR were extremely helpful and very interactive with the kids throughout the entire day.

We counted down the laps and watched the excitement of the crowd build; Victory Lane was a great way to cap off a fun-filled family day at PIR!
