NASCAR Championship Weekend

Visit Arizona for the race and then stay to experience all the excitement and adventure the state has to offer!

Twice a year, NASCAR fans race to Phoenix to see their favorite drivers take to the track and compete for glory.

The three-day Championship Weekend, November 4-6, 2022, ends the season with a series of races, concerts and pre-race activities as drivers vie for the crown in the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the ARCA Menards Series West.

In spring, spend the weekend at Phoenix Raceway as the season kicks off with the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and ARCA Menards Series.

Beyond the raceway, explore all that the greater Phoenix area has to offer. We're talking outdoors, nightlife, family activities and so much more.
