The Pocono Raceway

race flag with text The Pocono Raceway, also known as the “Tricky Triangle,” was first constructed in 1968. Over the years, it has come to enjoy a reputation as a unique track. It is one of the few NASCAR courses not owned by Speedway Motorsports, Inc. or the National Speedway Corporation.

The Track

The Pocono Raceway has the racetrack plus three separate infield sections that connect to the main track, allowing for more lap options during non-race weekends. Each turn on the main track is modeled after turns on other tracks throughout the U.S., making these turns difficult since they are all different from each other. The stretches between the turns also differ in length, which compounds the challenge.

Other Events

In addition to the races it hosts from the IndyCar Series and NASCAR, the Pocono Raceway is home to other kinds of entertainment.

Various sports car companies enjoy the use of this track, like Signature Car Collection from whom you can rent a sports car. 

You have a choice of riding along as a professional commandeers the car for a heart-racing experience similar to the real thing, or you can take the wheel yourself. If you’d prefer something smaller-scale, consider go-kart racing!

The Poconos Raceway hosts exciting races every year, and this year is no different. See below for a schedule of upcoming 2019 Pocono Raceway Events!
