Phoenix International Raceway’s luxury lounge, Octane, will host a unique charity event on Thursday, April 16 to help children and families in Arizona and beyond. Taking place in conjunction with the Jimmie Johnson Foundation 150 Presented by Shamrock Farms at PIR, the "Night of Champions" will be hosted by three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson and his wife, Chandra Johnson, co-founder of the Jimmie Johnson Foundation. Guests will have the chance to mingle with one of today’s most popular sports personalities as well as participate in an exclusive charity auction during the event. The Jimmie Johnson Foundation is dedicated to helping children and families in need and works with organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, Victory Junction, and the Hendrick Marrow Program, and Arizona’s own West Valley Child Crisis Center. Those looking to support the Jimmie Johnson Foundation before the “Night of Champions” have an exclusive opportunity to act as the Grand Marshal of the Jimmie Johnson Foundation 150 Presented by Shamrock Farms. In addition to delivering the command of “Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!” during pre-race ceremonies and riding in the pace car with Jimmie Johnson, the Grand Marshal will receive two tickets to the “Night of Champions” and pre-race pit access.
