PARK & RIDE PROGRAM OFFERS TRAVEL OPTION
PIR’S PARK & RIDE PROGRAM OFFERS NASCAR FANS TRAVEL OPTION FOR ADVOCARE 500
Fans encouraged to take simple route to November 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race
PHOENIX – Phoenix International Raceway has announced the operating schedule for its Park & Ride program and is encouraging race fans to take advantage of the shuttle service when traveling to and from AdvoCare 500, the semifinal race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup on Sunday, Nov 10.
After much success in recent years, the Park & Ride program returns to Ak-Chin Pavilion, located just two blocks north of I-10 on 83rd Avenue (Exit 135). All NASCAR fans heading to PIR are welcome to enter at the 83rd Avenue entrance and park on Pavilion grounds, and then board a shuttle from the Ak-Chin Pavilion to the Gate 7 area at PIR. Cost for parking and shuttle services to PIR will remain at $7 per car.
With the green flag dropping on the AdvoCare 500 at 1 p.m. MST, Park & Ride services will be available for 12 hours - from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. - on Sunday, giving all NASCAR fans an alternate transportation option before and after the race. The first shuttle will depart at 7:30 a.m. The raceway opens to the public at 8 a.m.
Guests with PIR-issued parking passes can utilize the Park & Ride services at no charge. Shuttle buses will take guests to PIR via preferential traffic routes, offering guests an earlier arrival to the facility.
Grandstand tickets for the November 10 AdvoCare 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race are sold out; however, fans wishing to attend NASCAR’s final West Coast race of the season – the semi-final race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup – may still purchase general admission tickets to PIR’s hillside area by calling 866-408-RACE or visiting PhoenixRaceway.com.
