Date: May 5, 2014

 

This Past Friday Snydersville Raceway would have one the most famous tracks on the NASCAR circuit make a stop at Snydersville Raceway. Snydersville welcomed Pocono International Speedway with Tammy Gower, Representative of Pocono Intl. Raceway, would bring the famous Go Bowling Chevy Camaro Pace Car and 500 tickets to the ARCA race on Saturday, June 7. We had a great time with Pocono Raceway as they got to see a go kart track in action on a Friday Night. Not only did the Tricky Triangle bring the Pace Car for looks but had it Pace, with lights flashing, the Sr. Clone Feature event as a little surprise for the drivers. We were glad to have Pocono Raceway, and Tammy Gower make a stop at Snydersville Raceway as the first of 2 stops at Snydersville. Pocono Raceway will be back on May 30 with the Pace Car and Tricky the Fox and more chances to win tickets to Pocono Raceway! Thanks Pocono Intl. Raceway for recognizing the small tracks and glad to have you as one of Sponsors!
