Pocono Raceway to Host “Drive the Triangle”

LONG POND, PA (September 4, 2013) – Pocono Raceway announced today they will host the “Drive the Triangle” event, benefitting the United Way of Monroe County. Donors will have the opportunity to take their personal vehicles, for a $10 donation, per lap, around the 2.5-mile Raceway between the hours of 1 pm – 7 pm on Wednesday, September 18 and Thursday, September 19.

“We are very excited about this year’s ‘Drive the Triangle’ event to benefit a great cause in the Pocono community,” said Brandon Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway’s President and CEO. “This is the second-straight year we have partnered with the United Way of Monroe County and we are hoping, by making this a two-day event, we will exceed the amount of money raised last year.

The “Drive the Triangle” event will begin inside the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Garage area, inside Pocono Raceway. Attendees will enter through the Gate 1 Tunnel, located off Long Pond Road. Signs inside the facility will guide individuals to the Garage area. Cash and checks, made out to The United Way of Monroe County, will be accepted. There is no limit on the amount of times a vehicle can go through the process, but each lap will require a $10 donation. All adults inside the vehicle will be required to sign a waiver, for insurance purposes. This event is rain or shine.

Staffing the event will be members of the Pocono Raceway staff and community volunteers associated with the United Way of Monroe County.

      Tony – Last year, we hosted an event similar to this one in the middle of the summer. Several dates became available, as our track is leased out to various clients, on our event lease calender that allowed us to host these track drives. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to host such an event as this next year, as well.
