It's been a year of adding an extra 100 laps, Phoenix International Raceway has returned to the good ‘ol days, as the GOOD SAM 500 is back in action.
This year the Phoenix International Raceway offers you even more racing, as the Subway Fresh Fit 600 is again the Good Sam 500. As there was already a race sponsored by Subway on the schedule (the now TUMS Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville), the name "Subway Fresh 600" was devised to reduce confusion. Subway later added the word "Fit" to the sponsorship to promote its Fresh Fit combo choices.
The race formerly known as the Subway 500
and GOOD SAM 500 , is now known as the Subway
Fresh Fit 500. The GOOD SAM 500 is a NASCAR
Sprint Cup Series stock car race held annually at
Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, Arizona. The
race, a 312 lap event that actually is one of only three
NASCAR series events measured in kilometers rather than
miles or laps. Phoenix International Raceway facilities
have been used not only for NASCAR but also for events
including IRL (Indy Racing League), Rolex Sports Car
Series, and the prestigious 'Copper World Classic.
Phoenix International Speedway. Although the track is
new to the NASCAR Sprint Cup series, Phoenix
International Speedway is known for its unusual tri-oval
shape and has been used by the Indy Racing League. At
one mile, Phoenix is a mid-length track in a “D” shaped
tri-oval. While Phoenix is a relatively flat track, with
a mere 11 degree banking, the action is still very
intense, and you will see drivers pushing their cars to
the limits and getting sideways coming out of turns two
and four. This lets you know that every driver means
business, and every driver wants to get to that finish
line quicker than the rest.
The past few years have been a who’s who of NASCAR, with
Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, Jeff Gordon, and Kevin
Harvick all notching wins at Phoenix International.
In 2009, Martin became the oldest driver to win in the
series since Morgan Shepherd won at age 51 on March 20,
1993 at Atlanta. Martin's victory was his first since
October 9, 2005 at Kansas Speedway and his first since
joining Hendrick Motorsports to start the 2009 season.
