Phoenix At 50

To celebrate and acknowledge its 50th anniversary, Phoenix International Raceway published a limited-edition commemorative book, ‘Phoenix At 50: A Half-Century of Racing’ documenting the last five decades of racing in the Valley of the Sun. After debuting during PIR’s spring NASCAR race weekend, the book is now available for purchase online at Amazon.com.

Fans can find the book by searching for ‘Phoenix International Raceway’  or ‘Phoenix at 50’.  The book, which retails for $49.99, is a comprehensive journey through the track’s first 50 years, featuring a series of vignettes and short stories focusing on many of the most exciting races and the greatest drivers to compete in Phoenix.

PIR has been a part of the motor sports scene since 1964. From its genesis as an open-wheel destination through its present-day status as a stock car haven, the one-mile desert oval has built its reputation as a unique challenge for drivers and as a memory maker for all who have visited over the last 50 years.
