(Long Pond, PA) – April 4, 2011 – Pocono Raceway, home to NASCAR’s Pocono 500 and Pennsylvania 500 is proud to announce its partnership with Premiere Sports Travel, one of the nation’s leading sports travel and hospitality providers, as their preferred travel provider. The partnership will include travel accommodations to all of Pocono Raceway events including the 30th Annual Pocono 500 set for June 12th, 2011 as well as the 38th Annual Pennsylvania 500 set for August 7th, 2011.
The relationship with Premiere Sports Travel will now offer NASCAR fans customized travel and hospitality packages like never before. Premiere Sports Travel’s packages will include tickets, hotel accommodations, deluxe motorcoach transportation to and from the track, pit tour passes, a welcome gift as well as twenty-four hour customer service.
Premiere Sports Travel will also provide travel packages from New York City to all Pocono events. “We are especially excited to give our NYC fans an opportunity to attend the Pocono and Pennsylvania 500,” said Brandon Igdalsky, President of Pocono Raceway. “Our fans in the City are going to love these packages and the service Premiere provides.”
“We are excited to partner with such a top notch facility and team,” said Brian Wilder, Executive Vice President of Premiere Global Sports. “No place in racing has more of a family feel than Pocono, thanks to the Mattioli family. This is a fantastic facility for racing.”
Pocono Raceway is a fan favorite because of its unique triangular design. There are only three turns, each distinctly different and connected by straight-aways of varying lengths. The track is designed to excite fans and challenge the world’s best drivers. During races drivers reach high speeds down a 3,055-foot straight-away which connects to the “tunnel turn,” an 8-degree turn over the tunnel leading into the track’s infield that is widely considered one of the most difficult in NASCAR. With its combined family atmosphere and unique racing challenges, it’s no wonder Pocono Raceway has been a fan destination since 1974.
“Premiere Sports Travel is a proven leader in the industry and are well known for their first-rate service,” said Igdalsky. “This partnership will show NASCAR fans that we appreciate their support and want their travel experience to be extremely positive.”
