Pocono Raceway
Social:
The track was founded by the late Dr. Joseph "Doc" Mattioli and his wife, Dr. Rose in 1957. The first racing events at Pocono Raceway were held on a former three quarter-mile oval. Upon completion of the 2.5-mile Superspeedway, the Raceway's first 500-mile Indy race was held in 1971. The first NASCAR Cup Series event was held in 1974.

Most people don’t realize all of the unusual facets that Pocono has concerning its location and its structure. Pocono is in the Magic Triangle – New York, Philadelphia and Pocono Raceway are all 90 miles away from each other – with New York as the #1 TV market and Philadelphia as the #4 TV market. Pocono is within 200 miles of 60 million people, and when you consider that the average Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series or Verizon IndyCar Series fan travels 300 miles, we are in the highest population density of any other NASCAR/INDYCAR track. Our unusual triangular configuration is conducive to many lead changes especially with the longest straightaway and the widest main straight with the longest and widest Pit Road. All of these features give Pocono uniqueness – a very enjoyable difference.
