Usually NASCAR drivers and fans are talking about Pocono Raceway’s “Tricky Triangle”, but this year it’s the NASCAR Doubleheader and Kids Free at the Raceway Weekend.
In an unprecedented move, racing fans get to witness two NASCAR Cup Series Races (taking place on consecutive days), a NASCAR Xfinity Series race, a NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series and an ARCA Menards Series race all in the same week. Also, kids 12 and under get into the raceway for free. It doesn’t get any better than five races in four days!
The countdown to the green flag at Pocono has begun… fans are scheduling time off and preparing to bring their RVs, tents, tailgating gear, cars, family, pets, friends and coworkers to the 2020 NASCAR Doubleheader taking place on June 25 – 28, 2020. Start your weekend on Thursday, June 25 with the ARCA Menards Series race. Be sure to purchase your raceway tickets, reserve your camping space, or book your hotel room now. Don’t wait, reserved camping space is almost completely sold out. Camping fans can arrive at 2 p.m. on Wednesday and stay until Monday. Feel free to bring your pets along for their own adventure. Pocono has a first-class dog park in the infield guaranteed to keep your pet entertained while burning off energy.
The Mattioli and Igdalsky families work hard to make everything a fan-based experience. When you think of Pocono Raceway hopefully great family fun and adventures comes to mind. As a family owned track for over 57 years, Pocono has mastered creating a family-friendly atmosphere and events geared to keep even the youngest fans engaged and entertained. Watching the drivers navigate their race cars through the fast, tricky track is a fan favorite. However, while you’re waiting for your favorite driver to start racing, adults and kids can enjoy animal wranglers, carnival rides, zip lines, go karts, jousting, a soft play area for kids with sensory issues, disabilities and more in the Fan Zone and Kids Zone. Young fans under 42” can climb, crawl and slide on various camping themed playground equipment in the soft play area at Tricky’s Kit Camp.
While visiting the track be on the lookout for a red fox dressed in a fire suit. He answers to the name of Tricky. Tricky is the fun, loving, and mischievous fox who lives at Pocono in the Kids Zone. Young fans can join Team Tricky’s adventures through the Kids Club. In addition to having the opportunity to interact with Tricky and race car drivers, members get their own welcome bag filled with track goodies including a lanyard and track card. Warning… your kids probably won’t want to leave the raceway!
