With limited fans in attendance for the upcoming Instacart 500 NASCAR Cup Series Weekend this week, Phoenix Raceway has once again created many exciting virtual experiences for fans to safely enjoy during their time at the races as well as from the comfort of their own homes.
The Phoenix Raceway Virtual Experience available at PhoenixRaceway.com/VirtualExperience encompasses a virtual Midway Experience, virtual INfield Experience and a virtual Zoomtown Market. This interactive site allows fans to click through partner displays, including videos, virtual concerts, virtual driver Q&A’s and all new virtual Phoenix Raceway trivia.
“With the current protocols in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone in attendance, we pushed ourselves to get creative with ways we can still deliver the experience our guests have come to expect of Phoenix Raceway,” said Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese. “We unveiled these virtual experiences for the first time last season during NASCAR Championship Weekend and we’re excited to showcase these again for everyone in attendance for the Instacart 500 Weekend and also for fans taking in all the action on FOX from their own homes.”
New to this weekend’s virtual experiences is Phoenix Raceway and NASCAR trivia. Fans can test their racing knowledge with fun trivia games found on the NASCAR Mobile App. Playable from the track or at home, fans can compete for a chance at real prizes featuring Phoenix Raceway prize packs, Short Track Speedway toy sets, Championship Weekend prize packs and more.
The Virtual Midway includes interactive partner displays with games and videos as well as a virtual Junior Activity Zone and Gamer Garage. The Virtual INfield Experience includes a behind-the-scenes look at the NASCAR Cup Series garages and driver interviews with the likes of three-time DAYTONA 500 Champion Denny Hamlin, Cup Series rookie Chase Briscoe and rising Xfinity Series star Harrison Burton.
