The thrill of NASCAR action at Phoenix International Raceway is just three weeks away, and tickets are available for each night of action in the Checker O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil event weekend.
Seats remain for select grandstand areas and can be purchased online at www.phoenixraceway.com or over the phone at 1-866-408-RACE (7223).
Tickets to PIR's Raceway Club, including food, drink, and exclusive souvenirs, are available. Raceway Club guests will be treated throughout the weekend to appearances from some of the top names in NASCAR, including Kasey Kahne, Kevin Harvick, Scott Speed, and Regan Smith, adding to a hospitality lineup which also includes a Sunday appearance by Carl Edwards in Trackside Club.
Special Veterans Day weekend ticket packages are also for sale, celebrating the service of current and veteran armed forces personnel with a ticket to the Friday, November 7 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Lucas Oil 150 and Raceway Club admission for the day. Defending series champion and current points leader Ron Hornaday will drive a special Veterans of Foreign Wars paint scheme on his No. 33 Chevrolet to mark a special partnership between PIR, the VFW, and Kevin Harvick Inc.
