2015 RACE DATES ANNOUNCED
PIR’s spring event weekend, headlined by the Camping World 500, moves two weeks later, to March 12-15, is scheduled to be broadcast on FOX. In the fall, PIR will continue to host the final race in the Eliminator round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup with the Quicken Loans Race For Heroes 500 weekend November 12-15, and will be broadcast on NBC.
“I'm delighted that Phoenix International Raceway will once again be able to host an exciting NASCAR weekend in the spring,” said PIR President Bryan R. Sperber. “The March 15th date will give fans a great opportunity to sample so many attractions in the Valley as well as enjoy our great weather that time of year.”
The move of PIR’s spring race weekend to mid-March promises to provide race fans and teams with fantastic weather, and the new date coincides with the Spring Break schedule for most Arizona K-12 school districts, making it a great family entertainment option. The race weekend also falls during Spring Break at Arizona State University, the University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University and Grand Canyon University.

Each season ticket includes admission to all NASCAR races during both event weekends, along with great savings over individual ticket prices. Season ticket holders also have the exclusive opportunity to purchase parking passes, pre-race pit passes and Budweiser ROLL-BAR passes at discounted prices. Other exclusive benefits to season ticket holders include the first opportunity to upgrade or change seat locations each year and the opportunity to purchase additional race tickets at the discounted season ticket holder price.
A new feature for PIR season ticket holders the 2015 is the Zoom Pass. The Zoom Pass, a hard plastic credential, will replace individual grandstand tickets and will grant the season ticket holder access to all races throughout the event weekend.
Phoenix has hosted a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in the spring every year since 2005, and the new date marks the fourth change in PIR’s slot on the NASCAR schedule during that time. PIR has hosted the second race of the NASCAR season in each of the last four years.
