#1 Pocono Raceway
Known as the "Tricky Triangle" for its three distinct turns, the Pocono Raceway began welcoming fans in 1968. Nowadays, Pocono Raceway hosts a handful of NASCAR races every summer, while a variety of other car-related experiences are available when races are not taking place. Visitors can ride in or drive a stock car, bring their own car for a spin on the famous track, choose from a selection of exotic cars to take for a test drive and more.
Past travelers praised the stock car ride-along experience, saying that the G-force going around the track's iconic corners provides an adrenaline rush. The park's clean atmosphere, from the restrooms to the vendors, also impresses most recent visitors. Still, those who are not racing fans expressed disappointment with NASCAR in general, and diehard NASCAR fans couldn't help comparing the Pocono Raceway to its more impressive counterparts.
