Travel Tips: Phoenix International Raceway

The NASCAR Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series will be descending upon Phoenix International Raceway on March 2 & 3 for a double-header weekend of competition at this one-mile flat track.

The Daytona 500 served as the official start to the 2013 points season with five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson capturing the checkered flag this past Sunday. He will be heading to a track this weekend where he has four wins, 12 top fives, 15 top 10s and one pole. Will he be able to pull off a consecutive win at PIR? This may depend on how Kevin Harvick fares because he is recorded as the second-best average finisher at this track with three wins, six top fives and 10 top 10s. I am sure that he will be looking for some redemption from being bit by the “Big One” in Daytona.

This week’s Travel Tips will give you several links to find out information about driver appearances, local recreation and restaurants, track entertainment and the weather forecast.
