Blakeway Worldwide Panoramas
Minnetonka, MN 55343 USA
Perhaps the most uniquely shaped and designed tracks in NASCAR can be seen in aerial panoramic pictures of Pocono Raceway, a superspeedway located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Fans of motor sports are sure to love images from this track, as the site is not only the location of many NASCAR races throughout the year (such as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series), but is also used by the Sports Car Club of America, motorcycle clubs, and auto racing schools. Because of its configuration and design, multiple events can be held at the site on the same day, with each club using different sections of the track.
The track design seen in Pocono Raceway panoramas is modeled after three different current and former NASCAR facilities. The 14 degree banking of Turn One is modeled after the former Trenton Speedway, the "Tunnel Turn" of Turn Two's design was inspired by the 9 degree banking of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the 6 degree banking of Turn 3 is similar to the track design of The Milwaukee Mile. The shape of the track seen in Pocono Raceway panoramic pictures really is almost a true triangle, making the speeds at its races much slower than at straighter-designed tracks. With some of the most exciting events in NASCAR because of its well-earned "tricky" moniker, these Pocono Raceway panoramas will be loved by any fan of NASCAR.
