As the Phoenix Raceway Project Powered by DC Solar begins to take shape, the construction crew is digging into the fan experience with the excavation of the new pedestrian tunnel.
The pedestrian-only tunnel will provide quick and easy access to one of the centerpieces of the $178 million modernization project – a premium Fan Zone. The tunnel (located near current Turn 2), will take fans from the DC Solar Power Pavilion directly under the newly-constructed Allison Grandstand extension to the Fan Zone area on the infield.
The completely redesigned Fan Zone will offer an experience unlike any other in the motorsports arena. Upon emerging from the tunnel, fans will enjoy new hospitality areas, food and beverage options, and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Garage – which will bring fans closer than ever before to their favorite drivers and teams. This milestone is the first step to a completely redesigned infield and Fan Zone experience for raceway visitors.
