Pocono Raceway has long been recognized as one of NASCAR's most competitive speedways. Pocono's unique 2.5-mile track features three turns, each with its own degree of banking (Turn 1 - 675 ft., 14 degrees, Turn 2 - 750 ft., 8 degrees, Turn 3 - 800 ft., 6 degrees) and three straights (Main Straight - 3,740 ft., Long Pond Straight-3,055 ft. and the North Straight - 1,780 ft.). This combination produces fender-to-fender action in the turns and 200 mph slingshots on the long straights with photo finishes. The combination of the track's own challenges and the fact that the three turns each have their own characteristics, has resulted in a unique description: "the superspeedway that drives like a road course". NASCAR NEXTEL Cup racing at Pocono is what great stock car racing is all about. Its great racing and location, in the heart of the Pocono Mountain resort area has made Pocono Raceway a favorite destination of race fans and vacationers.
