IndyCar racing returns in July to Pocono

Posted: October 02, 2012

Pocono Raceway announced Monday that open-wheel racing will return to the "Tricky Triangle" on July 7 after a 23-year hiatus with a 400-mile Izod IndyCar Series event. Tickets for the 2013 Pocono IndyCar 400 went on sale Monday.

Pocono Raceway's 400-mile event will join the 2013 Izod IndyCar Triple Crown with a $1 million bonus awarded to a driver who wins at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Pocono Raceway, and the 2013 IndyCar Series season finale at Auto Club Speedway in California. A driver who wins two of the three races will be awarded a $250,000 bonus.

IndyCars were commonplace at the Long Pond, Pa., track annually from 1971 to 1989.

Pocono will continue to host NASCAR's Pennsylvania 400 race.
