LONG POND, PA (June 20, 2013) – Pocono Raceway, through their existing partnership with Fuzzy’s Ultra Premium Vodka, will host a two-week tour, from June 21 – July 5, featuring the Fuzzy’s Triple Crown Trophy. This one-of-a-kind trophy will be on display on various locations throughout the Allentown, Philadelphia, Pocono Mountains, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton areas in advance of Pocono INDYCAR 400 Fueled by Sunoco on July 7.
The Fuzzy’s Triple Crown trophy was created to recognize a driver who wins the Indianapolis 500, the Pocono INDYCAR 400 and the MAVTV 500 at Auto Club Speedway, in the same year. The “Clubhouse Leader” is currently Tony Kanaan, who has the chance to accomplish a feat only one driver in IZOD IndyCar Series history has ever done in winning all three legs of the Triple Crown in one season. Al Unser, Sr., won the original three Triple Crown races in 1978 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Pocono Raceway and the now defunct Ontario Motor Speedway.
The “Fuzzy’s Triple Crown Trophy Tour” kicks off, with the help from the band Blues Traveler following their concert at the Sherman Theater Summer Stage at Mount Airy, on Friday, June 21. The tour revs up on Saturday, June 22, as the trophy stops at the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders game from 11 am – 1 pm ET, Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark from 2 – 3 pm ET, the Great Tastes of Pennsylvania Food & Wine Festival at Split Rock Resort from 4 – 5 pm and Barley Creek Brewing Company’s Summerfest celebration from 7 – 9 pm ET.
