LONG POND – Pocono Raceway President and CEO, Brandon Igdalsky released a statement Tuesday regarding the race traffic before and after the Pocono IndyCar 400 Fueled by Sunoco this past Sunday.


“The entire staff at Pocono Raceway thanks everyone in attendance at the Pocono IndyCar 400 Fueled by Sunoco on Sunday, July 7. The number of race fans who witnessed the historic return of the IZOD IndyCar Series to ‘The Tricky Triangle’ exceeded our expectations and we truly appreciated being able to share the experience with all of them. We would also like to express our gratitude to the IndyCar teams, drivers and officials for putting on an amazing race.


“Before and after the 400-mile open-wheel event, there was a large amount of traffic as fans tried to enter and exit our facility. After one of the most competitive races the raceway has seen in years, fans expressed their disappointment, almost immediately, via social media posts, phone calls and through e-mails.


“This week, we have meetings with state and local officials to find the exact reason for the breakdown and ensure these issues are resolved moving forward.


“We sincerely apologize for the woes faced by dedicated race fans. As President and CEO of Pocono Raceway, I am making a solemn promise, to every race fan, we will do everything in our power to make the traffic situations better in the future.”
