Fans encouraged to take easy route to the race track
Phoenix International Raceway is encouraging race fans to make their trip to the track a smooth one on Sunday, November 9.
Following its success for previous PIR events, the Checker O'Reilly Auto Parts Park 'N Ride
will be available for fans to make an easy trip to the feature event of the track’s November NASCAR event weekend, the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil.
After much success in recent years, the Park ‘N Ride program returns to Cricket Pavilion, located just two blocks north of I-10 on 83rd Avenue
. All NASCAR fans heading to PIR are welcome to enter at the 83rd Avenue entrance and park on Pavilion grounds, from where shuttle bus service from First Student Charter (formerly Laidlaw Transportation) of Phoenix will be provided to the Gate 7 area at the track. Parking and shuttle services to PIR will total just $7 per car.
With the green flag dropping on the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at 1:45 p.m., "Park ‘N Ride" services will be available for 12 hours - from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. - on Sunday, giving all NASCAR fans an easy way both to and from the track, before and after the race.
Guests with PIR-issued parking passes can “Park ‘N Ride” at no charge. Shuttle buses will escort guests to PIR via preferential traffic routes, offering guests an earlier arrival to the facility.
Tickets to the Semi-Final Race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and all other events throughout the November NASCAR event weekend at PIR can be purchased online at www.phoenixraceway.com
or over the phone at 1-866-408-RACE (7223)
