Pocono Raceway confirmed Monday that IndyCar and NASCAR Sprint Cup events will again play on its “Tricky Triangle” in 2014. The IndyCar Series, which returned to the Pennsylvania tri-oval this year after a 24-year absence will return to the track on July 5-6. The track also confirmed its two NASCAR Sprint Cup dates the June 6-8 Pocono 400 and the Aug. 1-3 GoBowling.com 400 race weekends.
“The past year was incredible,” stated Brandon Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway President and CEO. “Five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, Jimmie Johnson, dominated and took the checkers in our June race. Local favorite Marco Andretti set a new track record as he earned the pole for the IndyCar race in July, but during the race, Scott Dixon came out of nowhere to capture the first open-wheel victory at Pocono since 1989. Then the thrilling duel, at the end of the GoBowling.com 400 in August, between teammates Jeff Gordon and eventual race winner Kasey Kahne, capped off our exciting 2013 racing season.”
