“I am thrilled to join the team at PIR and to be a part of the NASCAR community,” Emmons said. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to promote America’s favorite motorsport in one of its greatest cities. Phoenix is a vibrant, exciting city with a tremendous sports culture and I’m delighted to call it home.”
A graduate of the University of Texas, Emmons began his career as a public relations intern with the Oakland Raiders in 2002 and joined the team fulltime in 2004. He spent two years with the Raiders before moving to Houston.
