Pennsylvania Governor says NASCAR may be allowed to compete at Ponoco


UPDATE: Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf said Monday that NASCAR would be allowed to compete at Pocono Raceway at the end of June if Monroe County moves into the yellow phase prior to the race weekend.

ORIGINAL POST 5-14-2020: NASCAR has yet to receive the green light to race in Pennsylvania.

Gov. Tom Wolf says he spoke to NASCAR officials about the status of the June 27 and 28 races at Pocono Raceway. The stock car series announced this week it will stick to Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, Florida and Alabama for June races – all of them without fans.

"We actually had conversations with NASCAR and I told them Pennsylvania is not ready to make a decision," Wolf said. "The area that they want to have this gathering in is actually in the red right now, red zone, red phase, so I told them Pennsylvania is not ready to make a decision."
