Phoenix Int’l Raceway Fails To Sell Out For NASCAR Semifinal Race

For the "first time in several years, NASCAR’s Cup championship semifinal didn’t fill" Phoenix Int'l Raceway's 50,000 grandstand seats, as there were "about 3,000 empty seats." Weather conditions "were near-ideal." But PIR President Bryan Sperber said that there was a "carry-over effect from last year’s rain-delayed and shortened event."

Sperber said, "Clearly the rainout from last year is having an impact," Sperber And Dale Jr. not being here (racing). And (retired) Jeff Gordon. Those are big factors." Arizona Republic
