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.

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.
