  4. What is the track like?
    Pocono Raceway has long been recognized as one of NASCAR's most competitive tracks in the NASCAR circuit, featuring two NASCAR Cup races each year. The 2.5-mile tri-oval superspeedway has a unique design, with each of its 3 turns modeled after a different track in the US. Turn 1: (14-degree banking) is modeled after the former Trenton Speedway. Turn 2: (sometimes referred to as "The Tunnel Turn") reflects the 8-degree banking of the infamous Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Turn 3: (6-degree banking) features aspects of the renowned Milwaukee Mile. Although referred to as a tri-oval track style, the Pocono Raceway's turns are more similar to a triangle shape, as its turns are much sharper than other typical tri-oval tracks (such as Daytona).
