The triangular oval-shaped also has three unaccompanied batter's box, sections of racetrack – North Course, East Course and South Course.

Pocono Raceway has a incomparable design. Each swerve is sculptured after swerve at 3 antithetic tracks. Turn One 14 immoderation finance was sculptured after the now dead Trenton Speedway
Pocono Raceway
, Turn Two as well well-known as "The Tunnel Turn" is enjoy Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Pocono Raceway
(9 immoderation banking), and Turn 3 6 immoderation finance is sympathetic to The Milwaukee Mile

, but the swerve are to a greater extent large to a greater extent intense large those of a to a greater extent veritable tri-oval much as Daytona
Pocono Raceway
and the inside track is actually about a triangle
Pocono Raceway
. They have old person likened slightly to the hairpin-style swerve of road courses. An additional complication is that the three swerve are not identical, nor are any of the three straights identical in length. The banking of from each one turn is considerably less than on many different long ovals. Although the track is long 2.5 miles, the sharp nature of the swerve and low banking tends to do the overall speeds more than depress than at different tracks of sympathetic lengths, thus restrictor plates

are not needful here. For its incomparable characteristics, Pocono is sometimes critique to as a roval
Pocono Raceway
an oval inside track that lose it enjoy a cutoff course. Others think of to Pocono as a modified cutoff shop due to the use of shifting mid-sixties to administered the purview between the slowest crenation and the fastest straightaway.
The odd map makes the setup of the car and the crew's ability to make chassis advance even to a greater extent polar here large at many different tracks.

The method bush a better RPM range around the track, built general lap times. By 1993, the total lawn was variable at Pocono, and using a specific transmission (manufactured by Jerico
