June Pocono NASCAR Race Tips

We shall coming to Pennsylvania from Phoenix and staying in Phildelphia and Allentown for the June Pocono NASCAR race. We will rent a car in Phildelphia and traveling to Allentown to stay for the weekend as it appears to be convenient to highways to the track and then return to Philly for the balance of our trip.

Any comments or recommendations for the best travel route to take for the race would be appreciated as well as tips on eats or drinks in Allentown. We shall be staying at Wingate on Hamilton Blvd based upon reviews, pricing and looks like a decent place to stay.

Looking forward to seeing your beautiful part of the country and thank you in advance for your comments!

Give yourself plenty of time to get there. There is only 1, 2 lane road into the track off of I80. There will be significant backups. Also plan to take a long time getting out. Have a picnic lunch after the race and give traffic some time to somewhat clear out.

Thanks DavefromColMD on the traffic. Yes, we expect that at every track we visit and shall be heading out early and then taking our time before heading back out after the race. Odd positive, but sad for the economy, we have found traffic lighter at tracks the past couple of years. I do hope all the fans keep coming back to NASCAR enjoying the great sport and we look forward to seeing the beautiful Pocono area. It's one of our bucklist things - visit all NASCAR tracks! Yes, we need to get a better imagination at times on life goals! LOL!

Thanks again and enjoy!

Since you mentioned in your other post you like local places, you might try Werts Cafe in Allentown. Old time restaurant, Their onion rin(more like onion straws)are the best I have had. They are also known for their burgers.

It is located very close to the Allentown Farmers Market (which is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays), and is also worth a visit.

Thank you brookquarry for the tip on Werts Cafe. I found it on the web and looks like exactly the type of place we enjoy trying. It's on the list!
