Race Your Own Car At Pocono Raceway This Weekend

Need for speed? Like to move fast, but do not like getting a ticket? Pocono Raceway has the event for you.

On August 1, 2022, at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA, you will be able to experience what it is like to become a NASCAR driver. You can use your car to race down the track unfettered with no speed limit. It is time for you to strap your seatbelt on and put the pedal to the metal. The event includes no speed limits, driver coaching, and two 15-min driving sessions on the 2.5-mile Superspeedway at Pocono Raceway.

To be eligible for this Bring Your Car event, you must complete or have completed a Stock Car Driving Experience at Pocono Raceway within the last three years. If you haven’t participated in one of Pocono Raceway’s Stock Car Driving Experiences, you can combine their 10-Mile or 20-Mile Drive Experience on the same day as the Bring Your Car event. The stock car 10, or 20-mile driving course is of limited availability and 10% currently. Don’t worry if you haven’t taken part in their Stock Car Driving Experience. If you miss out on this event, there are still a few more to come on September 16 and October 3, 2022. If you don’t want to drive but still want to experience the adrenaline-fueled atmosphere, you can watch locals burn rubber in a high-octane fashion though passengers are not allowed.
