- Pocono Raceway reserves the right to change or modify rules and policies. Illegal activities or activities that violate the rules and policies of Pocono Raceway are considered grounds for immediate removal from the premises.

Alcohol-impaired, belligerent, and obnoxious guests will be escorted from the facility by track security. To report any incidents, please contact track security at 570-643-7184
Continuing inappropriate behavior may result in the guest having his/her tickets revoked, being ejected from Pocono Raceway or arrested by police. All Ticket Holders are responsible for their conduct as well as the conduct of their guests and/or persons using their tickets. If individuals or members of a group are removed from the camping facilities by track security for violation of any Raceway rule, individuals and group members may lose the right to renew or purchase sites for future events. Vehicles may be removed at owner’s expense. Pocono Raceway reserves the right to revoke all rights and privileges pertaining to pass purchase.
Camping Guests should follow these guidelines to prevent this colorless, odorless gas from poisoning them and their family:
- Do not use portable heaters or lanterns while sleeping in enclosed areas such as tents, campers, and other vehicles. This is especially important at high altitudes, where the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning is increased.
- Vent RV generators and heater system exhaust away from or above their unit and their neighbors’ sites.
- Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, sleepiness, and confusion. Carbon monoxide reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen. Low blood oxygen levels can result in loss of consciousness and death.
- Seek medical attention if you or a member of your family develop cold or flu-like symptoms while camping. Carbon monoxide poisoning, which can easily be mistaken for a cold or flu, is often detected too late.
- Alcohol consumption and drug use increase the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.
- Carbon monoxide is especially toxic to a mother and child during pregnancy, infants, the elderly, smokers, and people with blood or circulatory system problems, such as anemia, or heart disease.
Generally speaking, once infield camping guests enter the property through RV registration and Gate #1 they cannot leave and re-enter the Pocono Raceway property unless approved by a member of Raceway management. To allow guests to leave and re-enter, Pocono Raceway provides an opportunity to purchase a Dash Pass.
- The Dash Pass identifies the vehicle as having valid access to go in and out. Every person in the vehicle must have on and show their Infield Guest Camping wristband at the gate in order to leave and re-enter.
DASH PASS SALES:
- Price: $25 (Cannot be purchased in advance)
- Will be sold at RV Registration and Infield Fan Center on Earnhardt Road during normal Infield Fan Center Hours throughout the weekend.
Note for Late Arriving Camping Guests: All guests are encouraged to arrive with their party at the time of check-in. Late arriving guests must stop at RV/Camping registration to exchange their guest camping pass for a camping wristband. A Dash pass will also be required to purchase in order to enter the infield to meet your party. For more information see Late Arriving Camping Guests below.
