Pocono Raceway & Marco Andretti at LVGP May 8th
Lehigh Valley Grand Prix, the regions premiere indoor karting venue has been granted the unique opportunity to host the Media Launch event for Pocono Raceway’s IndyCar 400 race on July 7th. IndyCar has selected Marco Andretti as the driver promoting the event. The driver selection makes complete sense due to the fact that Marco resides in Nazareth, Pa.
The Media Launch event will take place on May 8th at 1:30 pm. Marco will be racing and interviewing with the media until approximately 3:30pm. At 3:30pm he will be available for pictures and autographs with fans.
The IndyCar 400 is the first IndyCar race held at Pocono Raceway since 1989. The raceway has undertaken major changes in the past two years after the passing of the famous Doc Mattioli. Doc’s grandson’s Brandon and Nick Igdalsky have taken the reins and have been aggressive with renovating the track and adding races to the 2 famous NASCAR events. The tri oval was resurfaced in 2012 leading the way for hosting this major IndyCar event.
