Pocono Raceway (formerly Pocono International Raceway), also known as the Tricky Triangle, is a triangular shaped superspeedway located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Built in 1968, the track has changed very little since then with the exception of improvements to the facilities. The circuit hosts two annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races which are held a few weeks apart in June and August, as well as some smaller events on the infield circuits. Pocono is one of the few ovals on the NASCAR calendar which is independently owned and operated. One of the main reasons for the triangular layout is that the circuit designers took inspiration from corners at three other circuits, including Indianapolis. A super quote from their website sums the circuit up – "We have no illusion of becoming the biggest or the richest or the most famous racetrack in the world, we just want three things. Pocono PFC – Pocono Pretty, Friendly, Clean"
