Vote for the Fan Driven 400 Race Name

As some of you remember from last month, Pocono Raceway is allowing fans to design certain aspects of the June Sprint Cup Series race (all the details can be found here)The first portion of this design was to submit a name for the race and 1,697 unique names were submitted through the My Local Walmart App on Facebook.

This means that beginning March 11 fans can vote for one of three race name options: 
  • Race More. Live Better. 400
  • Pocono for the People 400
  • Party in the Poconos 400
Before you vote, you can see the Facebook user's name along with their submission.  Voting will end on Monday, April 8 and the race name will be announced shortly after.  To vote, please go to, and remember, if you want your favorite race name to win, you need to vote!

What Pocono and Walmart have partnered to do for the June race is truly a great experience for the fans - at what other track do you, the fans, get to have such a say in the race?  For more information on this venture, go to or  Even though this is a great experience for race fansit's about to get better; 16,000 Concourse Grandstand tickets to the "Fan Driven 400" will be $25 each at or through Pocono Raceway at
