Pocono Raceway is expecting more fans for its doubleheader weekend following Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s executive order on March 15, it announced today.

Originally, outdoor spectator attendance was limited to 20% on March 1. However, following the new order, outdoor capacity has been increased to 50%.

Pocono Raceway holds a seating capacity of 76,812 seats.

“Following today’s announcement by Gov. Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania outdoor events will be able to operate at 50% capacity starting April 4, 2021,” a Pocono Raceway statement read. “This is incredible news for our beloved fans and we cannot wait to see fans back at ‘The Tricky Triangle’ this summer.

“The health and safety of our guests remains a top priority. We will work with the Wolf administration, health officials and NASCAR to ensure the necessary recommendations and protocols are met prior to our June 25-27 race weekend.”

The Long Pond, Pa., track will host all three NASCAR series from June 25-27, as well as the ARCA Menards Series. The NASCAR Cup Series doubleheader will take place on June 26-27.
