PHOENIX – Fans can kick off one of the Phoenix area’s biggest party weekends by celebrating the start of the 2012 NASCAR season and the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ at Phoenix International Raceway’s annual Night of Champions charity event. Festivities begin Thursday, March 1 at 7 p.m. at Frank & Albert’s, located at the legendary Arizona Biltmore.
Fine food and friendly people will highlight the night in which attendees will mingle with celebrity guests including recently inducted NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip, Arizona Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt and the yet to be crowned 2012 Daytona 500® champion. All proceeds benefit the Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center and The MVP Foundation.
