ISM Raceway

Paved oval
1 mile
  • ISM Raceway has been a part of the motorsports scene since 1964. From it's genesis as an open-wheel destination through its present-day status as a stock car haven, the one-mile desert oval has built a reputation both on the way it challenges drivers and as a memory maker for all who step across its threshold.
  • Construction on Phoenix Raceway was completed in January of 1964. Scottsdale builder Richard Hogue, an amateur sports car racer, designs the track at the foothills of the Estrella Mountains to be known as the “Indianapolis of the West” as it is the only one of its kind outside of Daytona Beach and the only road racing course between the Mississippi and California. The new track includes a uniquely-shaped one-mile oval, a quarter-mile drag strip and a meandering 2.5-mile road course.
  • In his first start at Phoenix Raceway in 2015, Todd Gilliland became the youngest winner of a professional race in the track's 52-year history when he took the lead after a blown right front tire ended J.J. Haley's dominating run with six laps to go in the Casino Arizona 100, the championship race for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West title.
  • The K&N Pro Series West will close their 2019 season and crown the champion at ISM Raceway.
