PARK ‘N RIDE MAKES IT EASY FOR FANS
Fans encouraged to take simple route to the Kobalt Tools 500
Phoenix International Raceway has announced its operating schedule for its Park ‘N Ride program – encouraging race fans to take advantage of the shuttle service when traveling to and from the Kobalt Tools 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Race on Sunday, Nov. 14.
After much success in recent years, the Park ‘N Ride program returns to Cricket Pavilion, located 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, and board a shuttle from First Student Charter of Phoenix will be provided to the Gate 7 area at the track. Cost for parking and shuttle services to PIR will remain at $7 per car.
With the green flag dropping on the Kobalt Tools 500 at 1 p.m., “Park ‘N Ride” services will be available for 12 hours - from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. - on Nov. 14, providing NASCAR fans with an alternate transportation option, before and after the race. The first shuttle will depart at 7:30 a.m. The raceway opens to the public at 8 a.m.
Guests with PIR-issued parking passes can park and ride at no charge. Shuttle buses will escort guests to PIR via preferential traffic routes, offering guests an earlier arrival to the facility.
Tickets to the November 11-14 Kobalt Tools 500 NASCAR event weekend are still available with prices starting at just $25. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit http://phoenixraceway.com or call 866-408-RACE (7223).
