LONG POND, PA (May 29, 2013) – Brandon Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway President and CEO, just made the bold prediction that Jeff Gordon would win the June 9, Party in the Poconos 400 Presented by Walmart NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race at Pocono. He is so sure that Gordon will win; he is willing to give away $10,000 each, to 10 lucky race fans.
Last year, Brandon made a similar ‘Presidential’ prediction. He would write a $100,000 check to one lucky fan if his pick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., won the 2012 June Pocono 400. Unfortunately for that fan, Earnhardt Jr. ran strong, but finished 8th.
“I made my prediction last year on a gut instinct that Dale Jr. would win the race,” stated Igdalsky. “He was near the top of the Sprint Cup point standings and was due for a win at Pocono. This year I am using a different, sounder approach in my prediction. Jeff has won six times here at Pocono, the most of any driver, and has run well when he didn’t win. This is as much a ‘sure thing’ as there is in any prediction.
Our fans are the greatest fans in all of motorsports. Without them, nothing we do would be possible. It is time to give back to our fans! We will all be watching anxiously on June 9th to see if Jeff Gordon can win. If he does, I will gladly cut $10,000 checks for 10 lucky fans.”
Fans can enter the “Pocono President’s Pick for $100,000” by visiting select Official Pocono Raceway souvenir trailers, stands or tents in the Paddock area and near Gate 8 during the Party in the Poconos 400 Presented by Walmart race weekend.

At lap 80, ten winning names will be selected and immediately contacted to participate in the Post Race celebration should Gordon win! If the No. 24 Chevrolet SS, piloted by Jeff Gordon takes the checkered flag, each will win $10,000! Additionally, each of the 10 fans chosen will receive two Terrace Club tickets to a 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race of their choice at Pocono Raceway, regardless of the outcome of the June 9th race.
