With the debut of the new ISM Raceway rapidly approaching as part of the Can-Am 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Semi-Final Playoff Race in November, the Raceway is sharing updates as the construction ramps up on the $178 million ISM Raceway Project Powered by DC Solar.

About ISM Raceway: Since 1964, ISM Raceway has been the premier motorsports venue in the Southwest.
As part of a $178 million modernization project, the track officially became ISM Raceway in January 2018 as a result of a naming rights partnership with ISM Connect, a pioneer in smart venue technology bringing the digital fan engagement experience to Phoenix. Phoenix hosts two Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series weekends each year, beginning with the TicketGuardian 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race weekend on March 9, 10 and 11.
The schedule is anchored by the Opening Weekend, on Nov. 9, 10 and 11, with the Can-Am 500, the semifinal race in NASCAR’s Playoffs after which the field is reduced to the final four championship contenders. For more information, visit www.ISMRaceway.com.
