KOBALT TOOLS 500 TICKETS ON SALE NOW
Chase for the Sprint Cup semi-final weekend will be fans’ first chance to see ‘New PIR’
Beginning today, May 19, Race fans can purchase tickets to the Kobalt Tools 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. Fans may purchase tickets by calling 866-408 RACE, logging on to PhoenixRaceway.com or visiting the PIR box office at 125 S. Avondale Blvd. in Avondale, Ariz. The Kobalt Tools 500 on November 13 will anchor a full, four-day weekend of NASCAR action at PIR (November 10-13) and will be the first Sprint Cup Series event on a new, reconfigured and repaved racing surface.
In February, PIR President Bryan R. Sperber announced details related to the NASCAR facility’s first major track pavement project since 1990. Construction – including the removal and reuse of the facility’s old racing surface and subsequent installation of a new surface to go with a series of changes designed to promote side-by-side racing – began in March and will continue up to September.
“Our goal for the track pavement project was to not radically change a venue that’s celebrated by fans and drivers alike, but to utilize new technology to give us the best opportunity to create not just a new Phoenix International Raceway, but an improved PIR,” Sperber said. “We’re pleased with the progress made on the project thus far and are eager to present the new PIR during NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup in November.”
Race fans can take advantage of PIR’s Value Pricing Period (May 19 to July 4) immediately. Great individual pricing options will be available with Kobalt Tools 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series tickets starting at just $25 and WYPALL* 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series tickets (which includes admission to the Phoenix 100 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race on Saturday night) starting at just $15. Add free daily on-site parking with regular tram service, live music entertainment and interactive fun throughout PIR’s Midway and fans experience first-hand the “best value in NASCAR.”
Fans seeking a full weekend of NASCAR excitement at Phoenix International Raceway can purchase the Best Value in NASCAR Package for just $40. This inclusive package allows fans to experience three races and Gatorade Pole Qualifying in two days for one low price.
For just $179, fans can enhance their race weekend by purchasing a Budweiser ROLL-BAR and Pit Pass Combo Package for the Kobalt Tools 500 race day. This combo includes access to PIR’s pit road, food, beverage and exclusive Q&A opportunities with NASCAR drivers.
