Pocono Raceway is Pennsylvania's hot spot for horsepower. Nicknamed the "Tricky Triangle," this 2.5-mile track in Long Pond boasts three unique turns, each one modeled after a different track: Indianapolis Motor Speedway, The Milwaukee Mile, and the late Trenton Speedway. Its fascinating shape presents NASCAR and IndyCar racing competitors with the unusual dynamic of shifting gears as they zip along the asphalt, primarily between the track's slowest curve and fastest straightaway. In addition to the outer tri-oval, Pocono Raceway also features three infield road courses, typically used by sports car racing and motorcycle clubs.
Get in on Delaware's best race car driving at Dover International Speedway! Known as the "Monster Mile," this one-mile loop of concrete is home to a number of stock car racing events. Its turns feature cozy 24-degree banking, while the straightaways sit at nine degrees. The track serves as a reputable destination for the professional NASCAR circuits, but that's not its only draw! Spectators and competitors alike are also quick to recognize Miles, the stadium's biggest (46-foot) fan!
Ready to rev an engine at New Jersey Motorsports Park? Here's what to expect. Conveniently located near Philadelphia and NYC, this 500-acre racing complex offers two top-notch road courses for race car driving: the Thunderbolt (also known as "The Jersey Devil") and the Lightning. Both runs promise drivers elevation changes, thrilling turns, and lengthy straightaways and deliver just that over their 2.25 and 1.9 miles, respectively.
From drag racing and motocross, to karting events and monster truck shows — Raceway Park is a sought-after spot for Philadelphia folks looking for all sorts of race car driving fun! Its famous dragstrips come as 1/8- and 1/4-mile stretches, perfect for smoky burnouts and burnin' rubber. The Park also boasts a 1.35-mile road course. With features like a 1,400-foot straightaway, turns and mini corkscrew, there's no better place to put the pedal to the metal with a performance sports car!
And then there's Maple Grove Raceway. This 1/4-mile concrete strip hosts events for competitors of all ages and skill levels, ranging from local racers and juniors to professional circuits.
