$25 Reserved Seats Available in November
Fans offered unique value for Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500
Phoenix International Raceway is offering a $25 reserved seat to fans for the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil on November 15 - an unprecedented value to watch the semifinal race in NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup. In both 2007 and 2008, three-time defending Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson won the race in Phoenix, virtually clinching NASCAR’s highest honor in the Valley of the Sun. Johnson currently sits fourth in the Sprint Cup standings behind teammate and four-time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, who won the Sprint Cup in 2002 and 2005, and 2004 Sprint Cup champ Kurt Busch. Those four will be joined in Phoenix by NASCAR’s brightest stars, including Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Carl Edwards. Beyond the hard-charging Sprint Cup action of the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500, fans can secure three full nights of NASCAR action for a mere $47 by purchasing the NASCAR Extreme Value Ticket Package. PIR is offering a $15 reserved seat to its Nationwide Series race on Saturday, November 14 - a series currently topped by Kyle Busch and Edwards - and a $7 reserved seat for the Lucas Oil 150 in the Camping World Truck Series on Friday, November 13. PIR kicks off the November race weekend with grassroots USAC racing as part of the famed Copper World Classic on Thursday, November 12. Fans at Phoenix International Raceway can see championship-caliber races at the close of the 2009 season in all three of NASCAR’s national touring series for less than the price of many Sprint Cup Series tickets alone at other facilities. Throw in free daily on-site parking - not to mention a wide array of musical entertainment and interactive fun from PIR's Midway - and fans in the Valley of the Sun have one of sports and entertainment's best deals at their fingertips. A full listing of prices for the November NASCAR event weekend is attached to this e-mail. Tickets to all events throughout the Checker O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil weekend at Phoenix International Raceway are available at the newly-designed www.phoenixraceway.com or by calling 1-866-408-RACE (7223).
