Phoenix International Raceway has teamed with three-time defending Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson to create a ticketing option that provides unique, once-in-a-lifetime interactive opportunities, as well as a charitable donation. For $148, fans purchasing the Jimmie Johnson Foundation Experience Package will receive a grandstand ticket to the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ and admission to a special question-and-answer session with Johnson, along with a pre-race pit pass and a special gift. $48 of every package purchased will be donated to the Jimmie Johnson Foundation and its partner programs. For added convenience, the PIR Ticket Office will open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12, giving race fans more time to buy tickets in person in the days before the green flag. Normal weekday ticket office hours in the days leading up to the event are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Phoenix International Raceway Ticket Office is located at 125 S. Avondale Boulevard, just south of I-10 at Exit 131 in Avondale.
