The “Tricky Triangle”, which Pocono is known as, presents three very different corners and three straightaways of varying degrees. This track is a real challenge for drivers and their crew chiefs.

The Sprint Cup races for 2012 have been reduced from 500 to 400 miles.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which was built in 1909, is now an asphalt track with flat straightaways.

IMS has the claim as the world’s largest spectator sporting venue with permanent seating reaching 250,000 or more.

The track was paved in 1909 with 3.2 million bricks. A “yard of bricks” is at the starting-finish line.

RECAPPING THE 2011 BRICKYARD 400:

Paul Menard earned his first Sprint Cup win, holding off crowd-favorite, Jeff Gordon by 0.7 seconds. His crew chief’s pit strategy helped Menard lead 11 of the final 16 laps.

Jamie McMurray, the last driver to surrender the lead, finished fourth in the race. Kasey Kahne started the race second and led a high of 48 laps but finished a disappointing 18th.

Menard’s dad, John, has been a car owner for many drivers in the Indy 500.

The top 10 starting lineup with their qualifying speed for this year’s race includes:

Keselowski wins Quaker State 400 race at Kentucky Speedway

SPARTA, KENTUCKY — Driving his backup car, Brad Keselowski raced to his third win of the year, grabbing the lead with 55 laps to go and held off all challengers Saturday night in the NASCAR Quaker State 400 race at Kentucky Speedway.

Brad Keselowski's winning car

This year’s race went smooth as silk after track and Kentucky government officials spent the 365 days widening ramps, roads and highways and added 20,000 parking spaces. The initial Cup race in 2011 was marred by severe traffic jams and congestion which resulted in thousands of angry fans that got turned away due to no parking spaces being available.

The 28-year-old Keselowski, who is from the Detroit suburb of Rochester Hills, Michigan, won his seventh win in his five years in the Sprint Cup Series. He has two other wins this season at Bristol and Talladega.

The always-energetic and humorous Keselowski, was driving his backup car after wrecking the right side of his top car into the wall in a collision with Juan Pablo Montoya during practice earlier in the week during practice sessions. That accident occured on his first lap on the track.

Kasey Kahne came through with a late surge to finish second; Denny Hamlin was third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. came in fourth and Jeff Gordon was fifth.

2011 race champion Kurt Busch had the dominant car early in the first half of the race before he was bumped into a wall and had to battle suspension problems and a shock absorber which dropped into a non-contention state.

Tony Stewart was never a factor as he fell to the back of the pack with fuel-injection problems.
