LONG POND, PA (April 4, 2014) – Pocono Raceway and their official mascot, Tricky, announced today they will start a Kids Club for younger race fans, ages 14 and under. This membership will feature an exclusive welcome package, at-track benefits, two member-only events during the year and automatic entry into a drawing where one lucky member will be selected to wave the green flag to start one of Pocono Raceway’s ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards or Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tire races in 2014.
“One of my favorite things is the look on younger fans’ faces when they watch a race live at Pocono,” said Pocono Raceway President/CEO, Brandon Igdalsky. “Over the last few years, we have made a conscious effort to not only improve, but also to add to our kids-centric programs. Our annual Bowlopolis Kids Day (taking place Saturday, June 7) has grown each year, the introduction of Tricky and his Kit Kamp was greeted with rave reviews and the creation of the Kids Club is another piece to the ever-evolving kid initiatives we are putting in motion.”
After becoming a member, kids will receive a welcome bag containing their membership card, two-pocket folder, writing utensils, Tricky the Fox hero card, stuffed Tricky animal and more. A lucky kids club member will have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be the Honorary Starter for either the June 7 Pocono 200, July 5 Pocono Indy Lights race or the August 1 ModSpace 125. Kids Club members will also receive free admission, with ticketed adult, to all Friday and Saturday race weekend events at “The Tricky Triangle.”
“We hope to add more to the Kids Club, not only this year, but moving forward” said Igdalsky. “We think kids, and their parents, are really going to enjoy the benefits which come with being a Pocono Raceway Kids Club member. As a father of twin, nine year old girls, I can personally tell you the membership perks are ‘kid’ approved.”
