The first of this year's two Sprint Cup Series visits to Pocono Raceway headlines the racing calendar this weekend which includes the Camping World Truck Series, Whelen Modified Tour, World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.

The 2.5-mile "Tricky Triangle" is ready to host the Sprint Cup Series for Sunday’s Pocono 400.  The race marks the start of the regular season’s second half with 10 different drivers reaching Victory Lane in the opening 13 races.  Jimmie Johnson is the defending winner and will be gunning for his third consecutive victory after taking the checkered flag in Charlotte and Dover.

Motor Racing Network will kick off exclusive radio coverage of the Pocono weekend on Friday with Cup Series qualifying at 4:30 p.m. (ET).  Then on Sunday, MRN will begin its Pocono broadcasting day at 12 p.m.

At Texas Motor Speedway, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will tackle the 1.5-mile Fort Worth oval in tonight's WinStar World Casino & Resort 400.  Timothy Peters leads Matt Crafton and Johnny Sauter by a single point heading into the first of two stops in Texas this year.  MRN’s live coverage of Friday's race begins at 8:30 p.m.
