Story By: KEVIN HEANEY / POCONO RACEWAY – LONG POND, PA – Pocono Raceway will host 1,250 miles of racing as part of the 2020 NASCAR Doubleheader Week from June 25-28, 2020.
This historic motorsport event will feature five NASCAR and ARCA races in four days, including two NASCAR Cup Series races taking place on back-to-back days – a first in NASCAR history.
The 2020 NASCAR Doubleheader week will open with ARCA Menards Series practice, qualifying and the General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200 race on Thursday.
On-track action on Friday will include NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (Gander Trucks) practice and qualifying, along with two scheduled NASCAR Cup Series practice sessions.
Saturday’s events will feature NASCAR Xfinity Series (Xfinity Series) practice, NASCAR Cup Series qualifying to set the field for that day’s race, a 150-mile Gander Trucks race and a 325-mile NASCAR Cup Series race.
Xfinity Series Qualifying, the Pocono Green 225 Recycled by J.P. Mascaro & Sons Xfinity Series race and a 350-mile NASCAR Cup Series race rounds out the bucket-list motorsports event on Sunday.
(Note: The field for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race will be set by inverting the lead-lap finishers from Saturday’s NASCAR Cup Series race. Race length for Gander Trucks adjusted to allow for more access to Pit/Paddock Pass holders between the day’s events.)
