Rutledge Wood takes hike around Phoenix Raceway to show changes to come


NBC’s Rutledge Wood on Sunday took a pre-race hike around the area surrounding Phoenix Raceway.

Not only did he show viewers the beauty of the area, especially Rattlesnake Hill, but also gave viewers a vision of what Phoenix Raceway will look like once a nearly $200 million renovation program ends more than a year from now.

Work has already begun on the renovation, but the heavy work begins tomorrow after everyone clears out.

Check out Rutledge’s video above to get an idea of what the “new” Phoenix Raceway will do for fans and the racing.
