PIR's $25 Sprint Cup Ticket
The Best Value in NASCAR
Want to see a first-rate concert in the Phoenix area anytime soon? Prepare to shell out at least $25 - several times over. Looking for an old-fashioned night out…say, dinner and a movie? Again, you'll pay at least $25. Care to park the car at either event? Rarely does such a luxury come cheap - or without cost. With sights firmly set on giving race fans the “best value in NASCAR,” Phoenix International Raceway is offering a $25 Sprint Cup Series reserved seat and a $7 Nationwide Series reserved seat for the NASCAR event weekend scheduled for April 16-18. Combine the two and fans can attend the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™, Bashas' Supermarkets 200, and Sprint Cup Series qualifying on Gatorade Pole Day for just $32. Throw in free daily on-site parking with regular tram service - not to mention a wide array of musical entertainment and interactive fun from PIR's Midway - and fans in the Valley of the Sun have one of sports and entertainment's best deals at their fingertips. “Phoenix is a destination market and a huge sports town with many options - with that in mind, we’ve always worked hard to offer fans value and entertainment to go along with their racing experience at PIR,” said track president Bryan R. Sperber. “The prices offered for reserved seats to our spring races in 2009 fall in line with that philosophy, and we look forward to continuing to offer our fans the very best in sports and entertainment value moving forward.” Three-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson is less than 100 days from bringing his pursuit of an unprecedented fourth Sprint Cup title to the Valley on April 18, when he can become the first driver in history to win four consecutive races at PIR. Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Tony Stewart, Jeff Gordon, and the rest of NASCAR's stars will surely have something to say about Johnson's continued run at the record books, and NASCAR fans can see and feel it all live for just $25. Tickets for the April NASCAR event weekend at Phoenix International Raceway are available now at www.phoenixraceway.com, or by calling 1-866-408-RACE (7223). Be a part of it all at PIR!
