Over the Weekend: Fast Cars and Fabulous Times

By Jonathan McNamara

The Phoenix International Raceway was buzzing with activity this weekend as not one, not two, but three races delighted race fans and extreme noise enthusiasts. The Subway Fresh Fit 500 on Saturday drew a colossal crowd that was quick to slam over-priced beers while trying to talk to each other with ear plugs in.

Downtown got a little freaky this weekend thanks to the 12th Annual Phoenix Pride event. The event featured a parade on Saturday and a few celebrity music guests including Sheena Easton.
