Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Phoenix Raceway Project breaks ground

Phoenix Raceway has officially broken ground on the Phoenix Raceway Project Powered by DC Solar.

“To officially have this project underway is a tremendous feeling for our organization, fans, community and the entire state of Arizona,” said Phoenix Raceway president Bryan R Sperber.

“This has been the culmination of years of hard work by so many individuals, and to see this day finally here gives us all great pride. Phoenix Raceway has been the home for so many great moments in motorsports – and this day is the first of many more to come.”

On hand to ring in the occasion alongside Sperber were Helio Castroneves, driver of the No. 3 Chevrolet for Team Penske in the Verizon IndyCar Series; president of competition and operations for IndyCar Jay Frye; Maricopa County supervisor Steve Gallardo; Arizona senator Lupe Contreras; and City of Avondale Mayor Kenn Weise, as well as former IndyCar legends Tom Sneva, Lyn St James and Dick Simon.

“We are certainly very proud to be part of this and proud to be back here,” Frye said. “Especially with what they are doing with the facility. It’s already a great facility, great setting, great area and great history. Now it is going to have spectacular amenities and be great for the fans. It’s a great time to be back.”

The Phoenix Raceway Project will include grandstand seating of 45,000, upgraded club and suite facilities, new fan zone amenities, improvements to the escalator and elevator infrastructure, and technology upgrades throughout. The project will also include a completely redesigned infield, featuring a first-of-its-kind garage viewing experience, placing fans face-to-face with the superstars of the sport. Phoenix Raceway’s start/finish line will also be repositioned in Turn 2 just before the track’s well-known dog leg.
