NASCAR plans to make a pitstop in the Pocono Mountains for the 2021 season for two Cup Series races on back-to-back days, Pocono Raceway announced Wednesday.

The doubleheader at “The Tricky Triangle” is scheduled for June 26-27, 2021. Tickets are on sale now. Racefans in the Poconos will be the only fans to experience a NASCAR doubleheader next season as Pocono Raceway is the only track to host such an event.

“This is phenomenal news for Pocono Raceway and the Poconos region,” said Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau President/CEO Chris Barrett. “The sheer amount of excitement we all have for welcoming the drivers and their teams as well as the racefans cannot be understated. It’s great for small businesses and for our psyche.”

Kids, ages 12 and under, can attend all NASCAR races at ‘The Tricky Triangle’ for free next summer, according to an announcement from the raceway. Additionally, parking will remain free for all 2021 NASCAR events. For more information about Pocono Raceway’s Kids Free initiative, please visit
