Phoenix Fans Coming Out In Force
PHOENIX – NASCAR fans will be out in force at the Phoenix Int’l Raceway. Track President Bryan R. Sperber announced Friday that the track’s grandstands are sold out for the AdvoCare 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race on Nov. 10.
“We’re thrilled that NASCAR fans have once again chosen to attend the AdvoCare 500 and we are all looking forward to another wonderful and exciting race weekend,” Sperber said. “We recognize that fans have a number of choices as they decide where to go and we’re honored that they have chosen to support Phoenix Int’l Raceway.”
Fans who want to see the penultimate race of the Sprint Cup season will still have a place to watch at PIR. General Admission tickets for the track’s hillside area are still available by calling 866-408-RACE or visiting PhoenixRaceway.com. With Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth tied going into this weekend’s race in Texas, the Phoenix race is sure to play a big part in determining the 2013 Sprint Cup champion.
The 2013 Nationwide Series championship will also be a fight to the finish with Sam Hornish Jr. trailing Austin Dillon by a mere eight points.
