Pocono Raceway

About this event

Pocono S/E & Double Infield map

Join us for a weekend on the Pocono Southeast (Friday) and Double Infield courses (Sat-Sun). At this high-performance driver’s education event, the only speed limit is your own talent. Novice and intermediate drivers will have a volunteer in-car instructor to help you develop your car-handling skills – making you a better, safer driver on- and off-track. Never been on a racetrack before? This event includes Intro to DE on Friday.

About these tracks
The Double Infield course at Pocono Raceway has a little bit of everything: two twisty infield roads, NASCAR Turn 2, and a long stretch of the grandstand straight. The Southeast course at Pocono Raceway is autocross without all those confusing cones. This is the perfect place to practice or perfect your turn ins, apexes, and track outs. Located, as you might expect, in the Pocono Mountains, this track is convenient to both Philadelphia and New York City.

Event basics:

  • Run groups:
    • Intro to DE: For drivers who have never been on track before. This one-day event lets you experience every aspect of DE without committing to a full weekend.
    • Green: An instructed run group for drivers with little or no track experience. If you have not done at least 3 weekends at 3 different tracks, this is the run group for you.
    • Blue: An instructed run group for drivers with a full season or more of track experience.
    • White: For drivers with several seasons of experience. You can choose to have an instructor-mentor assigned to give you pointers on how to continue improving your skills and advancing to black.
    • Black: Advanced run group with extended passing. Sometimes combined with red. Placement at the discretion of our chief instructors. Includes new (and new-to-us) instructors.
