Pocono Raceway History
Pocono International Raceway has been recognized as one of NASCAR's most
competitive speedways. Pocono's unique 2.5-mile trioval features three
turns, each with a different radius and different degree of banking, and
three straights, each with a different length. This combination produces
fender-to-fender action in the turns, 200 mile-per-hour slingshots on
the long straights, and photo-finish endings. NASCAR Winston Cup racing
at Pocono is what great stock car racing is all about. The combination
of great racing and its location, in the heart of the Pocono Mountains
resort area, has made Pocono Raceway a favorite destination for race
fans and vacationers alike.
2.8 mile road course variant.
