Pocono 500 Race Talk

Pocono 500 Race Talk
I wonder why... the races at the Pocono Raceway, the June race is self titled... all the other races have sponsors attached to them, but I wonder why... It is called the "Pocono 500".

I hope to get some good photos this weekend, but no guarantees since I don't have any VIP passes or anything, lol. Although I wish I did, hehe. Big Grin But then again, doesn't everyone? hehe

RE: Pocono 500 Race Talk
There still could be a sponsor with the pocano race. Remember the southern 500 was sponsored by go daddy. It might be something like "Huggies diapers presents The Pocano 500" lol
Joey will be in the arca race on Saturday at 4pm on speed tuning up for Sunday's race.

Haha. Somehow I highly doubt Huggies will be sponsoring the race on Saturday.
Though, that would be a riot :]

Well there was a butt paste car lol
I think Joey will be fine, Pocano is not the difficult of a track compared to most and there seems to be a lot of room to pass..at least there is for me when i play it on Nascar 09.

RE: Pocono 500 Race Talk
Pocono is a difficult race track to drive because all three corners are different, this makes for a unique challenge in setting up the car for the crew chief and driver. And what happens is you have to setup the car to be be able to drive well in one corner, but you are giving up on another corner. So while the car may be tight in one corner... it may be loose in the other corner. So it's a fine line setup wise.

Just letting everyone know that the race is at 1 according to ARCA's website http://www.arcaracing.com/news.cfm?contentid=8081 but idk if speed will show it taped at 4. But thanks "Canadian Joey Fan" for pointing out that he will be racing then.

Hey Jean.
I don't know if you've seen this web page yet or not, but I think it might have some useful information for you. I know you had some questions on the VIP zone.

RE: Pocono 500 Race Talk
Looks like Joey just can't get his car working today! He got that break to get on the lead lap, but can't seem to stay up with the rest of the field.
