Pocono Raceway will host a double-header race weekend in 2020, featuring two NASCAR Cup races on back-to-back days, on Saturday, June 27 and Sunday, June 28. Camping and Cup race ticket prices will not increase for the 2020 NASCAR race weekend.

While tickets for the 2020 NASCAR race weekend will not be available for sale until later this year, there are no plans to increase any NASCAR Cup race ticket in 2020. Fans will be able to purchase June 27 and/or June 28 tickets at the same price currently being offered for the Raceway’s Pocono 400 (June) and Gander RV 400 (July) Cup events this summer. Additionally, there will be no changes to camping prices next year. The Raceway’s Kids Free Initiative and Worry-Free Weather Guarantee Presented by AccuWeather will be offered in 2020.

Fans are encouraged to visit www.poconoraceway.com/2020 for additional details.

“Pocono Raceway will be a marquee, bucket-list event next year," said Pocono Raceway CEO, Nick Igdalsky. “We will be the first track to host two, points-paying Cup races in consecutive dates in NASCAR’s modern era (1972-present.) Our family and staff remain committed to ensuring fans see the same value for their tickets as they have in years past. Kids, ages 12 and under, will still receive free gate admission to both of these races next summer. Fans can still purchase every ticket in advance with confidence because of our Worry Free Weather Guarantee. We guarantee that if a Cup race is postponed due to weather, we will offer you an automatic refund on unused tickets! The best way for a fan to ensure they can attend our 2020 race weekend is to have a 2019 ticket."

Fans can purchase their 2019 tickets by visiting www.poconoraceway.com/tickets. All 2019 Camping and Sunday ticket holders will have priority to purchase 2020 tickets before they go on sale the public. As part of the Raceway’s annual renewal program, these 2019 ticket holders will also have the opportunity to save up to 20% on select 2020 tickets. More information regarding the 2020 ticket renewal, as well as the public on-sale date, will be announced later this summer.

“Nowhere else will fans be able to enjoy this volume of quality NASCAR racing in one weekend," said Pocono Raceway President, Ben May. “Our commitment to our guests, partners and community will remain second to none as we consolidate into one marquee, bucket-list weekend. The Pocono Mountains are a beautiful place to vacation and this date perfectly aligns with our mission to create lifelong memories and provide a magical weekend of racing and the value to match."
