Phoenix Raceway supported the LGBTQ+ community at the recent 2022 Phoenix Pride with its wrapped 2022 Toyota Camry TRD pace car driven during the parade. This is the first time Phoenix Raceway has participated in Phoenix Pride.
“It was an honor for Phoenix Raceway to participate in Phoenix Pride this year,” said Phoenix Raceway President Julie Giese. “We support its mission to promote unity, visibility, and self-esteem within the LGBTQ+ community. It aligns with our vision for a more inclusive and equitable world for all of our race fans.”
Phoenix Pride, founded in 1981, was established primarily for charitable, educational and social purposes. The main purpose of Phoenix Pride is to promote unity, visibility, and self-esteem among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer persons; and to promote a positive image in the Valley of the Sun and throughout Arizona through community activities and services. – Phoenix Pride
