Pocono Raceway issued a statement Tuesday afternoon outlining race details for its 2020 doubleheader event in late June.
The first of the weekend’s two races will be 325 miles, while the second will come in at 350 miles.
Pennsylvania’s Tricky Triangle will host NASCAR action from June 25-28, featuring all three of the sport’s top series alongside the ARCA Menards division.
1,250 miles of racing make up the main events, not including practice and qualifying for all of the races.
The ARCA drivers will race in the General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible 200 and the Xfinity Series in the Pocono Green 225 Recycled by J.P. Mascaro & Sons, but race sponsors for the lone Gander Outdoors Truck Series event and both NASCAR Cup Series events have yet to be named.
First on track will be the ARCA cars on Thursday, June 25, taking the green flag shortly after 4:15 p.m.
No races will take place Friday, but Truck practice and qualifying, as well as Cup Series practice, will be held.
The 150-mile truck race will get underway around noon on Saturday, June 27, and the first of the weekend’s two Cup races starts at 3 p.m., running 325 miles. Sunday, June 28 will showcase the Xfinity Series, hitting the track at noon, while the slightly longer second Cup Series race, at 350 miles, will start at 3:30 p.m.
