Phoenix International RacewayRacing

7602 S. Avondale Blvd, Avondale, AZ, 85323
    Phoenix International Raceway is located in Avondale, Arizona and opened in 1964. It is also known as PIR. Phoenix International Raceway has the seating capacity of 67,000. In 2004, lights were added around the track. International Speedway Corporation currently owns and operates the raceway. Phoenix International Raceway is a 1.5 mile tri-oval race track. Tri-oval is a shape that gets its name from two other shapes, a triangle and an oval. Instead of meeting at sharp angles as in a triangle at its three corners, in a tri-oval these angles are rounded and smoothed out as in an oval. An oval racetrack would have four turns while a tri-oval track has an fifth turn derived from the top point of the triangle. Tri-oval race tracks allow spectators an angular perspective of the cars coming around the track towards them and moving away. Oval race tracks offer only linear views of the course and require the spectators to view it much like a tennis match looking back and forth. The original racetrack was designed with a “dogleg” into the backstretch due to working around the terrain and to incorporate a drag strip. The original race track was 2.5 miles and ran both inside and outside of the main oval track. In 1991, the 2.5 mile track was removed and replaced with the current tri-oval 1.5 mile track.
