PIR ANNOUNCES STAR-STUDDED LINE-UP
Entertainment and Driver Appearances Set for SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ weekend
NASCAR fans at Phoenix International Raceway will be treated to a star-studded line-up of drivers taking time to visit with crowds as part of the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ weekend Feb. 24-27. Guests for fan Q&A appearances throughout the weekend include five-time defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, 2010 Sprint Cup Series regular season points leader Kevin Harvick, 1989 Sprint Cup champion Rusty Wallace, 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Clint Bowyer and the winner of the 2011 DAYTONA 500®.
Other drivers scheduled to mix with fans throughout the race weekend include extreme sports legend Travis Pastrana, who is racing in the 3 Amigos Organic Blanco 100 at PIR on Feb. 24, defending SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ champ Ryan Newman and West Coast fan favorites AJ Allmendinger and Robby Gordon.
PIR will also offer fans a host of live entertainment options, headlined by renowned New York DJ Kid Capri. Kid Capri will perform at 11 a.m. on Feb. 27 on the Budweiser ROLL-BAR main stage – just before SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ pre-race ceremonies commence. The pre-race ceremonies promise to be equally exciting, with Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum performing the Star-Spangled banner and record-setting speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno serving as Grand Marshal for the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™. Ohno will also make an appearance in PIR’s Octane lounge on Feb. 27.
