Heading to NASCAR @ PIR?
The Subway Fresh Fit 600 is this Saturday night at Phoenix International Raceway. But, the festivites begin TODAY! If you’re planning to pay a visit to Avondale, you need to know how the traffic routes will work. That’s why I’m here! Click more for details.
MCDOT suggests using park and ride shuttle-buses from 10am to 10 pm Saturday. The buses start at Cricket Wireless Pavilion. Use the 83rd Ave entrance. Those buses will get you to Gate 7 at PIR. Parking and shuttle services cost $7 per car, unless you have a PIR-issued parking pass. YOU ride for free!
Expect the Avondale Blvd exit on I-10 to close a bit between 7:30 and 10:30 Saturday night. If you don’t have a parking pass, you need to use Litchfield Road or Estrella Parkway. Special passes and permits require you to use Avondale Boulevard. Also, El Mirage Road is closed south of Southern Avenue due to flooding. Don’t go there!
Bring your cell and call 511 for traffic updates! Just press *7 when the line answers. There will also be Twitter updates: www.twitter.com/PhoenixRaceway.
Good luck, and may the force be with you!
