Known as the Tricky Triangle, the Pocono Raceway hosts NASCAR Cup Series events during the year, including the Overton’s 400 race held July 30.

The weekend began with the Fan Fest Friday, featuring various activities with nine drivers scheduled to participate: Joe Gibbs Racing’s Daniel Suarez, Hendrick Motorsports’ Dale Earnhardt Jr., Leavine Family Racing’s Michael McDowell, Chip Ganassi Racing’s Kyle Larson, Roush Fenway Racing’s Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Front Row Motorsports’ Landon Cassill, Stewart-Haas Racing’s Kurt Busch, Furniture Row’s Martin Truex Jr., and Wood Brothers Racing’s Ryan Blaney.
