On the coming weekend, the Xfinity Series and the Nascar Cup will be heading to the Valley of the Sun in Avondale, Arizona. The single-mile Phoenix Raceway will be the venue for the final race of the West Coast Swing. The drivers still start their cars for the Ruoff Mortgage 500 on the afternoon of Sunday, March 13, for a Nascar Cup series race that is more than three hundred laps. The defending champion of the Ruoff Mortgage 500 is Martin Tuex Jr. He was the victor in the race held last year while driving a Toyota vehicle with an average speed of more than a hundred miles per hour. Kevin Harvick has won the race the most number of times. Kyle Busch Motorsports is the team to watch out for in the Ruoff Mortgage 500. They have put more than five drivers in the victor's seat. Their most recent win in the race came only three years ago.

History of Ruoff Mortgage 500

The race is held at the Phoenix Raceway. It is presently managed by Nascar itself. The racetrack gets a few races every year. It got another spring race nearly two decades ago. The raceway was constructed around Estrella Mountain nearly half a century ago. The landscape led the designers of the racetrack to create a dogleg into the backstretch along with the inclusion of a drag strip and a road course. The initial road course ran both outside and inside the oval track nearly three miles in length. The hillsides run along the tracks and give a special vantage point to watch the Ruoff Mortgage 500. A few years ago, Nascar had announced that the Phoenix Raceway would be the host of its championship weekend events.

 

Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese said, "Phoenix Raceway is home away from home for thousands of NASCAR fans across The Valley, and we can't wait to welcome them back for two exciting weekends next season. And we're more than pleased that Ruoff Mortgage is rolling out the welcome mat for our opening NASCAR weekend next season, making the home sweet home even sweeter for our fans in the Spring." 

 

Ruoff Mortgage chief administrative officer Kim Murphy said, "The Ruoff Mortgage 500 is a celebration of racing, its fans, and the iconic track at Phoenix Raceway. Just like in racing, speed is essential when it comes to purchasing a home, and for nearly 40 years, we've been getting people' clear to close' fast and stress-free. We are excited to connect with and welcome home race fans in Arizona and across the country with this partnership."
