Voting continues for Fan Driven 400

April 01, 2013, Staff report,

Fans have until April 8 to pick the name for June race at Pocono

There’s one week to go before polls close for fans to name the June 9 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. 

That means there are more chances to think about whether the event should be called “Race More. Live Better 400,” “Pocono for the People 400” or “Party in the Poconos 400.” But hurry up and let your voice be heard.

Walmart and Pocono Raceway have teamed up to give fans options like naming the race, and they can do so by visiting on Facebook. Go there and find out which name is leading the pack, and share the vote with friends to ensure your choice gets noticed.

On April 8 the polls will close for voting for the race’s name, but voting or other fan-driven choices for the event continues. From April 8-May 6 fans get to vote on a concession item that will be available during the race, choosing from three different recipies for pierogies. Then, from May 6-May 27 fans can vote on the design for the race’s pace car. 

It all culminates on June 9, when fans will get to enjoy an event that they had a say in developing. And Walmart is offering affordable options for the race, offering 16,000 Concourse Grandstand tickets at $25 apiece. Fans can purchase those tickets by visiting or
