Where and how can I purchase tickets?
Is General Admission seating available? What is the Hillside?
How do I get into the pit and/or garage area for the races?
A Pre-Race Pit Pass is required for any fan to enter the pit area. You may purchase a Pre-Race Pit Pass by calling 866-408-RACE (7223) or by clicking here.
Pit availability depends on track activity schedule. Smoking and alcoholic beverages are prohibited on pit road at all times. Guests must be mindful of security and NASCAR officials while on pit road. Pre-Race Pit Pass access depends on the specific event weekend. Pass allows access Thursday-Saturday to the pit crew side of pit road up to one hour prior to the start of the race each day (with the exception of minors). New NASCAR mandated change for 2015 and beyond: Minors (17 and under) admitted in the Pit area on Sunday only and must be accompanied by an adult or legal guardian.
On Sunday, the Pre-Race Pit Pass allows access to the pit crew side of pit road and the track directly in front of the Pre-Race Stage up to 30 minutes prior to the start of the race. Access to pit road, excluding direct access to the race cars, is allowed up to 1 hour prior to the start of the race.
NASCAR controls garage access on their race weekends, meaning Phoenix International Raceway does not sell garage passes.
