ISM RACEWAY ANNOUNCED AS 2018 IMPACT AWARDS RECIPIENT
ISM Raceway was announced as one of eight local companies to receive an IMPACT Award at the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) 31st Annual IMPACT Awards. The IMPACT Awards honor the accomplishments of small and large Valley businesses and the positive influence they have on the community and economy.
“Giving back to the community has always been important to our organization,” said track president Bryan R. Sperber, “and to be recognized by the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce for our support of the community is humbling for ISM Raceway and very much appreciated.”
For over 50 years, ISM Raceway has been a staple of the Arizona sports scene, offering Valley locals and visitors alike the chance to watch some of the best auto racing in the world. With the $178 million ISM Raceway Project Powered by DC Solar that will be completed for the November 2018 Can-Am 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series weekend, the track is becoming one of the premier sports venues in the country.
“This year’s IMPACT Award recipients are truly reflective of the strong leadership, expanding innovation and dedication to the community, that the Greater Phoenix business community is proud to be known for,” said Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Todd Sanders. “These organizations will continue to serve as role models for our community and drive the growth of the Greater Phoenix region for years to come.”
