Phoenix International Raceway has been a part of the motor sports scene since 1964. From its genesis as an open-wheel destination through its present-day status as a stock car haven, the one-mile desert oval has built a reputation as a unique challenge for drivers and as a memory maker for all who have visited over the last 50 years.

To celebrate and acknowledge the track’s golden anniversary, PIR president Bryan R. Sperber announced the release of a limited-edition commemorative book documenting the past 50 years. “Phoenix At 50: A Half-Century of Racing” is a comprehensive journey through the last five decades of racing in the Valley of the Sun.

Comprised of a collection of work by writers from varying backgrounds that have shared their talents to bring these stories together — including a foreword from “The King,” Richard Petty — the book tells the stories and the secrets of the track’s fifty years.

The book will be available for purchase at the PIR ticket window and on Amazon.com.
