Pocono Raceway (formerly Pocono International Raceway), also known as The Tricky Triangle, is a superspeedway located in the Pocono Mountains in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. It is the site of four NASCAR national series races and an ARCA Menards Series event in June: a NASCAR Cup Series doubleheader with support events by the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. From 1971 to 1989, and from 2013 to 2019, the track also hosted an Indy Car race, currently sanctioned by the IndyCar Series.

Pocono is one of only a few NASCAR tracks not owned by either NASCAR or Speedway Motorsports, the dominant track owners in NASCAR. Pocono CEO Nick Igdalsky and president Ben May are members of the family-owned Mattco Inc, started by Joseph II and Rose Mattioli. Mattco also owns South Boston Speedway in South Boston, Virginia.

Outside NASCAR and IndyCar Series races, Pocono is used throughout the year by the Stock Car Experience, Bertil Roos Driving School, Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) as well as many other clubs and organizations. The triangular track also has three separate infield sections of racetrack – the north course, east course and south course. Each of these infield sections use separate portions of the track or can be combined for longer and more technical course configurations. In total Pocono Raceway has offers 22 different road course configurations ranging from .5 miles to 3.65 miles in length. During regular non-race weekends, multiple clubs or driving schools can use the track simultaneously by running on different infield sections. All of the infield sections can also be run in either clockwise or counter clockwise direction which doubles the 22 course configuration to 44 total course options.

  • Great race weekend for the entire family. I take 1 star away because on Saturday i was told the umbrellas i had in my bag could not be brought in and that was after a 2 mile walk to the gate. So they said we could leave them with the gate personnel and the umbrellas were not still there when i left. But on Sunday i definitely saw at least 200-300 people with umbrellas inside the track. They should have more consistent and enforced policies. Great races. Great time. Friendly staff. Food was a little pricey. But a major plus is you can bring in your own cooler with food and drink items. Major, major plus on conserving funds for other activities for a wonderful family experience.
  • So much fun. My husband did a stock car drive. A lot of instruction before his drive. The raceway was beautiful and clean. Fun had by all.
  • I love Pocono Raceway out of NASCAR and ARCA series excellent Raceway. Be prepared for possible delays due to rain or serious crashes into barricades. Traffic on race day is slowed to a halt entering the Raceway so advance early like around five am to enjoy the day more and most. Coolers are allowed no glass bottles though.
  • Had a great time at Pocono raceway! Can't wait to go back next race. They also have the yearly airshow which my family and I will be checking out this upcoming year!
  • Awesome experience and great staff and will always go back let's go nascar racing
