Open for every NASCAR event in the Valley of the Sun, SPEED Cantina is a one-of-a-kind entertainment venue.
A major portion of the commitment to enhance the overall fan experience at Phoenix International Raceway, SPEED Cantina is the track's innovative collaboration with SPEED™ to provide the latest at-track entertainment for NASCAR fans.
SPEED Cantina is a one-of-a-kind sports bar & grill which opened at Phoenix International Raceway in 2008. Featuring live music and racing-themed food and drink specials nearly every night throughout each NASCAR weekend at the track, SPEED Cantina is a hot spot for NASCAR nightlife.
"The SPEED brand resonates with race fans because it embodies authenticity and fun," said Phoenix International Raceway president Bryan Sperber. "Blending that with the live, fun-loving experience of Phoenix International Raceway is a hit."
SPEED Cantina sits just outside of Turn 2 behind the Bobby Allison Grandstands. Designed by the Phoenix-based company Detail Design & Fabrication (DD&F), SPEED Cantina is characterized by the type of bold and innovative environment that both PIR fans and SPEED viewers have come to expect. The highly-creative bar environment - designed exclusively with NASCAR fans at PIR in mind - welcomes patrons with 32-foot illuminated signage and features custom furnishings, a specialty bar, and a number of flat-panel television monitors highlighting live SPEED Channel broadcasts and thrilling on-track racing action at PIR. NASCAR fans attending events at PIR are able to visit SPEED Cantina at no additional cost.
"SPEED is all about being at the track all weekend, all season," said SPEED president Hunter Nickell. "We're on site and surrounded by race fans with nearly everything we do, so when PIR offered us the opportunity to fly the SPEED colors on a fresh, cool fan-friendly idea like the SPEED Cantina, we jumped at the chance."
