Race fans get to take in night racing at PIR (Phoenix International Raceway) tonight. the track, actually located in Avondale, has access routes through Avondale and Goodyear. (Until the Gadsden Purchase in 1853, the site was 1/2 mile into Mexico!) The race is the Subway Fresh Fit 500 tonight which is 312 miles under the lights. race starts at 5:30.Another event for Avondale and neighbor Goodyear!Over 100,000 are expected to see the race; any doubters can just look at the traffic tonight at around 10pm (til midnight). Drive carefully when you leave. the streets aren't the track!
