NASCAR Racing Notes - June 5


The tricky triangle known as the Pocono Raceway got a major facelift in the off-season with new asphalt. If drivers thought the old pavement with its ruts, slick spots and potholes was bad, the new surface may be just as difficult to figure out.

NASCAR is so aware of the new challenges for the three-turn, 2. 5-mile raceway, it will allow two extra days of testing before the track officially opens for practice, qualifying and Sunday’s Pocono 400.
