Richard Petty Raceway, a first-class go-kart track located on the PIR Midway inside Gate 4, will provide fans a chance to test their racing mettle for just $20 per session. Originally launched for the April NASCAR event weekend at PIR, Richard Petty Raceway will take on a permanent position on PIR's Midway, ensuring first-hand entertainment for fans 16 and older.
The raceway's structure will include a pit and garage area, as well as grandstand seating where each driver's "fans" can gather and show support, just as they would for the Chase for the Sprint Cup competitors on PIR's one-mile oval.
At 20 feet wide and featuring a flagman's tower, tire barriers, and a layout quite similar to that of the main Phoenix International Raceway oval, Richard Petty Raceway is designed to give NASCAR fans yet another exciting racing surface - with the added thrill of participation.
