For the first time in facility history, Phoenix Raceway will host NASCAR Championship Weekend for all three of the sport’s national series. And as of Tuesday, tickets are on sale to ensure you don’t miss the experience.
Title weekend is scheduled for Nov. 6-8 on the reconfigured, action-packed 1-mile track in Arizona. A bonus for those looking to see which NASCAR Cup Series driver lifts the Bill France Cup at the culmination of the weekend — there’s a fourth title to be decided with the ARCA Menards West Series concluding on Saturday, Nov. 7, in a doubleheader with the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

That’s four championships in three days.
“It’s difficult to put into words the level of excitement we feel here at Phoenix Raceway and across the entire community for this NASCAR season and what is to come between now and November 8,” said Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese. “I’m incredibly proud that our facility, and the State of Arizona, will be hosting this year’s NASCAR Championship Weekend.”
Fans attending will continue to benefit from Phoenix Raceway’s modernization project, which will continue to allow fans to get closer to the championship action than ever before. As part of NASCAR Championship Weekend , fans will have the opportunity to take in the midway experience, featuring merchandise haulers and interactive displays from sponsors and vendors. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase the INfield Experience, providing unprecedented access to their favorite drivers and teams throughout the entire weekend.
A $178 million project designed to make the fan and race experience even better first launched in 2018. The most visible change from afar was the repositioning of the start/finish line in Turn 2 just before the dog leg, which makes those late-race restarts and passing opportunities all the more important.
Flat screen TVs are located throughout common areas, and WiFi is available throughout the facility — even in-seat.
Other structural changes included a new ticket and guest services building, a new garage experience, new fan zone bar and more.

Steeped in NASCAR history, Phoenix has plenty of incredible moments in its history. Alan Kulwicki turned a “Polish Victory Lane” after his first NASCAR Cup Series win in 1988 (which came at the track’s first Cup Series race), Kevin Harvick earned the facility’s first sweep in 2006 and Clint Bowyer attempted to chase down Jeff Gordon after a memorable on-track incident between the two in 2012.
More recently, in the playoff-elimination era, we’ve seen clutch walk-off wins by Harvick and Denny Hamlin and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s final win in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2015.
Expect a new memorable moment to join that list.
