"We are thrilled to partner with BRP to present the Can-Am 500 next November," said PIR President Bryan R. Sperber. "There is a tremendous affinity for outdoor powersports among NASCAR fans, particularly in the desert southwest, that makes this a fantastic fit. The passion, energy and excitement synonymous with the Can-Am brand will be on full display throughout the Can-Am 500 race weekend as the Chase for the Sprint Cup comes to Phoenix."

Under the new Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup format, PIR's semifinal race in the Chase is the last of the Eliminator round and will determine the final four drivers that will fight for the championship the following weekend.

The Phoenix International Raceway has been maintaining its strong presence among other racing tracks since 1964, the year when it was first opened as a desert oasis for American open-wheel racing. Since then the Phoenix International Raceway has been through many changes. This raceway is a one mile paved oval on a 650 acre facility that attracts NASCAR betting action every year. Motor sports racing fans know the significance of Phoenix, as it is one of the biggest NASCAR Sprint Cup stock car races around.
