Pocono Raceway has long been recognized as one of NASCAR's most competitive speedways. Pocono's unique 2.5-mile tri-oval features three turns, each with a different degree of banking, and three straights, each with a different length.

This combination produces fender-to-fender action in the turns, 200 mph slingshots on the long straights and photo-finish endings. The combination of the track's own challenges and the fact that the three turns each have their own, individual characteristics has resulted in a unique description; Pocono is often defined as the "superspeedway that drives like a road course."

NASCAR racing at Pocono is what great stock car racing is all about. Its great racing and location, in the heart of the Pocono Mountain resort area, have made Pocono Raceway a favorite destination for race fans and vacationers alike. For more information on the track, visit www.poconoraceway.com

Location: Three miles south of exit 43 off I-80 on Pennsylvania Route 115. For hotel, motel and campground accommodations, call toll-free 1-800-POCONOS.
