The framework for the creation of Pocono Raceway began in the late 1950s, when a group of investors formed Racing Incorporated. In 1962, a spinach farm near Long Pond, Pennsylvania, was chosen as the site for the multifaceted racing complex. Construction on the track began in 1965, but progress moved very slowly. The three-quarter-mile oval portion of the facility was completed in 1968, but it was not until 1971 that the two-and-a-half-mile superspeedway was ready for competition. From its humble beginnings, Pocono Raceway has grown to attract great numbers of enthusiastic spectators to both of its NASCAR® events each year.
