There’s no other track in the US like Pocono Raceway—which, in part, is due to the fact it’s a Franken-track of three different famous turns at racetracks around the country.
And it’s got even more little idiosyncrasies that, over the years, have endeared the speedway with gearheads and racing fans alike.
So on the occasion that our esteemed colleagues at UrbanDaddy Perks are giving you an incredibly well-priced opportunity to race supercars (you’ll drive Ferraris, Lambos, Audis and/ or Maseratis) at Pocono Raceway, we’re taking a closer look at “The Tricky Triangle” and breaking down all of its unique traits by the numbers:
UrbanDaddy Perks is giving you an incredible opportunity to race supercars
2.5: Length of the tri-oval-angular track, in miles.
14: Degree of the banking at Turn One (modeled after the now-defunct Trenton Speedway).
9: Degree of banking at Turn Two (the “Tunnel Turn” modeled after the Indianapolis Motor Speedway).
6: Degree of banking at Turn Three (modeled after the Milwaukee Mile track).
67: Number of seconds you’ll need to watch this video before being totally convinced:
42: Number of years the track has been in operation.
76,819: Size of a capacity crowd.
42.5: Number of seconds the fasted lap was recorded (by Emerson Fittipaldi, in an IndyCar at speeds up to 211 mph).
40,000: Number of solar modules powering the track in an adjacent 25-acre “solar farm” (making it the largest solar-powered facility on earth and easily the greenest track in NASCAR).
You’ll drive Ferraris, Lambos, Maseratis and Audis on the racetrack
9,884: Number of laps completed by Terry Labonte (the current leader in said stat).
400: The length, in miles, of the marquee races in both the IndyCar and NASCAR circuit held at the Pocono Raceway each year.
4: Number of laps you can drive in your choice of a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, an Audi R8 V10 Spyder, a Ferrari 360 Spider or a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale with this Perk.
9: Number of laps you can drive in (of the aforementioned supercar variety mentioned above) with this fully charged Perk.
0: Number of reasons you have to say “no” to this magnificent opportunity. Obviously….
