Towering over Turn 4 at Phoenix International Raceway is a breathtaking view from Rattlesnake Hill, littered with passionate – and sunburnt – race fans.

Grab your lawn chairs and a few cold ones, pay the old fellow sitting hunched over at the toll booth (kids are free) and begin your ascent to the top of Rattlesnake Hill.

Find a spot, set up shop and raise a 3 for Dale Sr.
