PIR GIVES FANS ACCESS TO NASCAR STARS
Schedule for Entertainment and Driver Appearances is Announced
(PHOENIX, Ariz.) – Phoenix International Raceway NASCAR fans 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™ NASCAR weekend, March 1-3.
Guests for fan Q&A appearances throughout the weekend include America’s “Favorite Driver” Dale Earnhardt Jr., 2013 Sprint Cup contender Kevin Harvick and UFC Champion Dominick Cruz. Fans with Grandstand Tickets for the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ will have access to the Junior Q&A, while the Harvick and Cruz appearance will require a pass for the Budweiser ROLL-BAR Club which are still available for purchase.
PIR will also offer fans a host of live entertainment options, headlined country sensation Craig Campbell. Campbell will perform at 11 a.m. on March 3 on the Budweiser ROLL-BAR main stage – just before the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™ pre-race ceremonies commence. The pre-race ceremonies promise to be equally exciting with Adam Gontier, former lead singer for 3 Days Grace, performing the Star-Spangled banner and “The Office’s” Brian Baumgartner serving as Grand Marshal for the SUBWAY Fresh Fit 500™.
The weekend’s full schedule of entertainment is listed below. Please note that events scheduled within the Budweiser ROLL-BAR Club, Turn 4 Wine Trackside Club or Octane requires patrons to purchase a ticket to those areas.

A three-day package for Octane is $1,900 per person and includes unlimited food/beverage and many other plush accommodations.
