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.
