The XM Satellite Radio Indy 200 was an IndyCar race held at the Phoenix International Raceway in Avondale, Arizona. The event began in 1915 on a dirt oval at the Arizona State Fairgrounds. The race was revived in 1950 by the American Automobile Association, and then passed to the United States Auto Club in 1956. USAC moved the race to the newly built Phoenix International Raceway in 1964. The race became a CART event in 1979, and joined the Indy Racing League in 1996. It was last run in 2005.

In 2007, the Grand Prix Arizona, an attempt to run a Champ Car street race in downtown Phoenix, was aborted four months before the event due to lack of sponsorship funding.[1]
