The brand attributes of both PIR and Budweiser are reflected in the new ROLL-BAR and we’re eager to open its doors to race fans during our April NASCAR weekend.” Budweiser ROLL-BAR will be located on the site of the former Raceway Club hospitality area, just behind the Bobby Allison Grandstands on the west side of the track.
