The newly modernized INfield at ISM Raceway is set to make its spring debut with exciting new additions and fan amenities when NASCAR returns to the Valley of the Sun for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series TicketGuardian 500 Weekend, March 8, 9 and 10. New to the INfield experience this race weekend will be a Junior Activity Zone open all weekend long and on Sunday, ISM Raceway’s Gatorade Victory Lane will host the Inaugural eNASCAR Heat Pro League Draft featuring the biggest teams in the sport.
“We’re excited to host the greatest fans in motorsports again this weekend for the TicketGuardian 500,” said Julie Giese, ISM Raceway president. “Our INfield is the most immersive fan experience in all of NASCAR and we’re proud to continue to grow that with new additions to the amazing activities already in place.”
Highlighted by the new interactive garages allowing fans to get up close to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers and teams, the opportunity to celebrate with winning teams in Gatorade Victory Lane and driver appearances throughout the weekend, the INfield offers an unparalleled access for fans. Along with the new Junior INfield access pricing, ISM Raceway is opening a Junior Activity Zone featuring inflatable games, giant coloring boards, face painters and other child-friendly activities.
Beginning on Saturday, March 9, fans will have the chance to receive copies of NASCAR Heat 3 and race head-to-head around the virtual ISM Raceway while their races are shown on the Gatorade Victory Lane video board. On Sunday, Gatorade Victory Lane will play host to the inaugural 2019 eNASCAR Heat Pro League Draft as the newly-formed esports league will feature 14 teams and 28 drivers, each owned and operated by prominent NASCAR teams. The draft will be broadcast on ISM Vision Screens throughout the facility, but fans with INfield access can see the event live in Gatorade Victory Lane as drivers, owners and other team representatives will be on hand to make their picks.
Fans will also have opportunities to see some of their favorite drivers on Friday and Saturday in the INfield at the driver appearance stage behind Gatorade Victory Lane during moderated Q&A sessions.
