Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan Sperber was the in-studio Newsmaker guest on Wednesday night's The Race Reporters on PowerUp Channel. PIR is one of the few tracks to increase its race distance, up to 600k for the April 10 Subway Fresh Fit 600k, due to NASCAR's new, earlier starting times. More laps mean the race will still end at night. Mark Armijo and Bob Pockrass joined me for the journalists roundtable.
