"Phoenix Raceway provides a one-of-a-kind setting for some of the most exciting and thrilling races that the sport has to offer," said ISC Chief Executive Officer Lesa France Kennedy. "This project will further enhance that experience and ensure that the venue continues to be a treasured destination for race fans."In addition to fan and spectator areas, PIR is exploring improvements for competitors and industry personnel, particularly key structures located throughout the infield. "We are energized about the changes that we are bringing to Phoenix Raceway and we think the fans will be too," said Phoenix Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber. "The race track itself will remain unchanged as one of the most exciting circuits in motorsports, but we will modernize much of the venue and provide our fans with a high-quality, leading-edge experience." Additional details on the redevelopment are scheduled to be announced in January.
