Amenities

For all of the events hosted at the park, guests will find top-notch accommodations and amenities. Guests can sit in the grandstands, enjoying perfect views of the courses and a high-quality sound system while feeling the rumble of trucks and hearing the crunch of earth underneath tires. A broad assortment of food and beverage options are typically available for purchase to keep you fueled up for a day at the races.

For a private luxury experience and to get out of the heat and into the air-conditioning, the park offers VIP suites with exciting views from tiered seating just above the starting line. With VIP parking, closed-circuit TVs, and food and beverage catering options, grabbing a suite for the race is a sure way to impress your friends, employees, or clients.

There are also two beautiful and functional covered pavilions with large lawns on site that are available for rent. One overlooks the lake adjacent to the upper pits, and one is behind the grandstands at the drag strip right near the main entrance.

And, of course, if you’re in town for races and need somewhere to stay, the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass and Gila River Hotels & Casinos - Wild Horse Pass are both conveniently located within the same destination as the Motorsports Park.
