The debut event for this new premium hospitality offering at PIR will also include live music and other NASCAR-themed entertainment. “We’re excited to extend our relationship with the Budweiser brand,” said PIR President Bryan R. Sperber. “What makes this partnership unique is the opportunity to introduce an entertainment venue that blends the fun and excitement of our sport into a one-of-a-kind environment. 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. It will feature the best in live entertainment with drink specials each day and night throughout the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ NASCAR weekend, a custom beer garden area to showcase the No. 9 Budweiser Dodge, and appearances by some of NASCAR’s top personalities.
