The Park ‘N Ride lot is conveniently located at Cricket Pavilion, just two blocks north of I-10 on 83rd Avenue (Exit 135). All NASCAR fans heading to PIR are welcome to enter at the 83rd Avenue entrance and park on Pavilion grounds, from where shuttle bus service from First Student Charter of Phoenix will be provided to the Gate 7 area at the track.

With the green flag dropping on the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 600™ at 4:30 p.m., "Park 'N Ride" services will be available for 12 hours - from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. - on Saturday, giving all NASCAR fans an easy way both to and from the track, before and after the race.
