Phoenix International Raceway

Phoenix International Raceway, also known as PIR, is a one-mile, low-banked tri-oval race track located in Avondale, Arizona, USA. The track opened in 1964 and is built around the Estrella Mountains outside of Avondale. Because of the terrain and incorporation of a road course and drag strip, designers had to build a “dogleg” into the backstretch.

In 2011 PIR announced plans to repave the track for the first time since 1990. The plans also included a reconfiguration of the track. The reconfiguration of the track made the width of the front stretch 62 feet, changed the pit stalls from asphalt to concrete, moved the dogleg (backstretch) outward by 95 feet, as well as making the radius of the dogleg 500 feet.

News, Updates and Rumors

Phoenix International Raceway: This track was resurfaced and reconfigured in 2011. No word if iRacing plans to rescan/reproduce this track anytime soon.
UPDATE: iRacing has scanned this track and is in the build queue. No word yet as to when we could see this update released. Many members are speculating the update will include all of the new track surface and a night version as well. 12/27
