Kids get free gate admission at Pocono next year

LONG POND, Pa. (September 4, 2018) - Children, ages 12 and under, will receive free gate admission for Sunday Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and Verizon IndyCar Series races at Pocono Raceway in 2019. This new initiative will start today as part of the 2019 Pocono Raceway Ticket Renewal Program. All remaining tickets for next season's events at 'The Tricky Triangle' are scheduled to go on sale to the public in early October.

Kids, ages 12 and under, will now receive free admission to 100 and 200 levels of the Grandstand, as well as Fan Fair, for all Friday, Saturday and Sunday events during NASCAR and INDYCAR event weekends. Children will have the chance to watch all the racing action from the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series and ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards at 'The Tricky Triangle' free of charge next summer. All children must be accompanied by an adult with a gate admission ticket. For more information, please visit www.poconoraceway.com/kidsfree.

"The 2019 season marks our 50th year of racing," said Nick Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway CEO. "To celebrate this milestone, we wanted to do something extraordinary for the fans. One of my grandparents' visions was for Pocono to become one of the most beloved, family-friendly motorsports and entertainment facilities. Today's announcement embodies our family's core values, which have remained unchanged since we first opened our gates to the public in 1968. Hopefully, this kids free on Sunday initiative will provide more families the opportunity to create lasting memories, much like the ones I have and continue to experience with my own family, at the track for generations to come."

Individuals who purchased tickets through Pocono Raceway in 2018 can renew their tickets for next season. These customers have the opportunity to save 20% on select 2019 tickets by renewing before the November 15, 2018 deadline. Renewal customers will also gain automatic entry for a chance to win* Tricky's custom-built golf cart, crafted and designed by our partners at Jake's Golf Carts. Email communications regarding the renewal program are in the process of being delivered to these fans.
