    Where can we find pictures that were taken on the track today before the race? I know there were several photographer. I was wondering if they would be posting pictures.

      Yes. There will be a shuttle bus, located at Gate 3 that will transport you to the infield for the Pocono Concert Stage and Block Party on Friday and Saturday evening. Upon your arrival to the track, you will receive a welcome bag. Inside the tote bag is a booklet discussing times and locations for the shuttle bus. Enjoy the GoBowling.com 400 race weekend and we’ll see you soon!

    I paid for a FAN VISION for Sunday, but then saw months ago that the schedule doesn’t show it active for Sunday…are they in effect on Sunday? If not, how do I get a refund?
