I went to this race because, living in Virginia, this is the closest IndyCar gets to me. My friend and I bought tickets that were right behind the start finish line and were as close as you could get to the track. We went up and stayed in a hotel about 45 minutes from the track and drove the rest... More

Really easy to get in and out of there. Adequate choise of food. Additional big screens is really needed.

First and foremost - BRING SUN SCREEN! Always a great time - most recently saw the Indy cars and it was great. Decided to sit in the Terrace section - which allowed us to see the whole track. Honestly, if it was a really hot day, and you can swing the price, the shaded seats may be worth it if... More

Customer Service for the Stock Car racing experiencing is horrible. I purchased a video and photo package, and they tell me the video isn't functioning properly and refused a refund. Yet, I drove 3+ hours for this as a surprise for my boyfriend. I do not recommend going here, there's better experiences and customer service elsewhere.

We go there every year for 10 yrs or more. It is great. We have our same seats. The best this year was our best driver won the race. First time since we have been going. It made it real great. But we do love it.

Unique Triangular shaped track with great site lines from the upper seats. The straightaway in front of the stands is not banked, so the view of the cars is not as obscured as it is in some other tracks. Friendly service and good facilities round out this as a great track to watch a NASCAR race.

We sat right behind the start finish line on the upper deck, we couldn't see anything besides the front stretch and the turns, the screens dont help either because you need binoculars to see them, trying to get out of the parking lot is a total nightmare, we were standstill for 45 minutes and moved 2 inches literally, don't get...

First of all, a BIG complaint: I have never experienced less helpful staff anywhere I have ever been in my life. NO ONE knew the answer to "where do I go to pick up pit passes?", which I would think is a really common question, and one which they should be trained to know the answer to. Their lack of... More

So you've never been to auto races? Don't be scared! Pocono Raceway (aka The Tricky Triangle) was my first Nascar race experience & it was really FUN! This venue has lots of heart, character & history. Here's a few tips (that I learned) to hopefully make your race day visit better & more comfortable: * Coolers of goodies! Lots of... More

Ive done a few different tracks on the NASCAR circuit but did Pocono yesterday for the first time with my father. Getting into the lot wasnt so bad on Long Pond RD. It's not until you get onto track property then things turn to chaos. 15 minute wait to be directed into our parking spot in the middle of a... More
