Okland Construction is teaming up with special-events contractor Barton Malow to complete the $178 million renovation of Phoenix International Raceway (PIR). This partnership combines Okland’s experience in the Phoenix market with Barton Malow’s expertise renovating motor speedway facilities.

The renovation will include the following upgrades.
  • Relocating the start/finish line
  • Expanding the grandstand to 45,000 seats all with unobstructed views
  • Adding two new gate entrances
  • Installing new concessions, restrooms, elevators, and escalators
According to Raceway President Brian Sperber, “Nowhere on the NASCAR circuit will fans be able to get closer than what we’ll be able to provide.”

The project starts in February and will be completed in November 2018.
