Fans Invited to Take Hot Laps for the Troops
Track also selling limited edition patriotic hat
To benefit Phoenix International Raceway’s annual Salute to Military Families program just prior to the events of the April NASCAR weekend, the track is offering race enthusiasts the chance to visit PIR for a high-speed ride around the track at $50 per person, with the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving. The annual promotion, Hot Laps for the Troops, will take place on Wednesday, April 15 and Saturday, April 18. All proceeds from “Hot Laps for the Troops” will benefit the Salute to Military Families program, helping to provide tickets and race day entertainment for the many men and women of the United States Armed Forces. Without the military’s support and commitment to the liberty and freedom of the American population, the entertainment of NASCAR racing at PIR and venues across the country would not be possible. “Hot Laps for the Troops” is scheduled for two sessions on April 15: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fans with SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ tickets can also get up to speed with the program on April 18 as part of their NASCAR Sprint Cup Raceday experience from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tickets are currently available online at www.phoenixraceway.com, by calling 1-866-408-RACE (7223), or by visiting the Gate 3 ticket office at the track (for Saturday session laps only). To pay additional honor to the many current and past members of the American military forces, PIR has unveiled a limited edition “Stars and Stripes” logo hat in time for the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™, while supplies last. Each special edition hat - navy and embroidered with a red, white, and blue Phoenix International Raceway logo - costs $30 and can be purchased online at www.phoenixraceway.com or during the event weekend at PIR souvenir locations or the PIR Midway display. In addition, the Stars and Stripes hat will serve as the “Official Uniform Hat” at PIR for the event weekend. To top the American celebration off, one lucky fan wearing the Stars and Stripes hat will be spotted by a PIR representative and given the opportunity to ride in the patriotic-themed Phoenix International Raceway pace car to open the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ on Saturday, April 18. All proceeds from the special edition hat will support the Salute to Military Families program. While the purchase of a ticket to “Hot Laps for the Troops” or a commemorative Stars and Stripes hat does not include race admission, tickets for the April 18 SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ and all other events throughout the weekend at PIR are still available at www.phoenixraceway.com or by calling 1-866-408-RACE (7223).
