    It's my local track, so I can't be too harsh, but I feel some of the changes they have made/are making leave a little uncertainty on how I'll enjoy the experience going forward. I've always enjoyed the freedom to carve out my own spot, by myself or with a group of friends in the unreserved camping lots. I was informed at this years spring race that unreserved camping would be eliminated going forward and everyone would have to reserve their 25' x 50' spot ahead of time. I feel like a small piece of what made this track so enjoyable and unique is now lost.

    Surprisingly not crowded. Good views from the bleachers. Good fireworks show. Too bad the concession stands were running out of AZ necessities such as water and Gatorade earlier than they should have, even with the light crowds. Parking was free but takes awhile to get out, so bring extra parking lot snack and drinks. Still a good place to watch the races!

    NASCAR racing here is awesome. Lots of space to park. You can really feel the race cars here as they fly by. Tons of RV areas as well.

    Love this raceway. You can bring your own food in but also have option of buying food if needed. Everyone is friendly. Camping is awesome. Have been coming here for years and have made some great friendships.

    PIR is a very nice facility. It's surrounded by the hills and has a great look to it. Awesome place to watch a race. Only word of warning is be prepared to do a lot of walking and climbing.
