Pocono Raceway Puts $ 100,000 on Gordon to Win June 9th Race
Brandon Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway President and CEO, made the bold prediction that Jeff Gordon would win the June 9, Party in the Poconos 400.
And he is willing to give away $ 10,000 each to 10 lucky race fans if Gordon wins.
Last year, Igdalsky made a similar 'Presidential' prediction. He would write a $ 100,000 check to one lucky fan if his pick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., won the 2012 June Pocono 400. Unfortunately for that fan, Earnhardt Jr. ran strong, but finished 8th.
"I made my prediction last year on a gut instinct that Dale Jr. would win the race," Igdalsky said. "He was near the top of the Sprint Cup point standings and was due for a win at Pocono. This year I am using a different, sounder approach in my prediction. Jeff has won six times here at Pocono, the most of any driver, and has run well when he didn't win. This is as much a 'sure thing' as there is in any prediction."
Fans can enter the "Pocono President's Pick for $ 100,000" by visiting select Official Pocono Raceway souvenir trailers, stands or tents in the Paddock area and near Gate 8 during the Party in the Poconos 400 race weekend. Once there, they will be required to fill out a simple entry blank to become automatically entered.
At lap 80, 10 winning names will be selected and immediately contacted to participate in the post race celebration should Gordon win. If the No. 24 Chevrolet SS, piloted by Gordon takes the checkered flag, each will win $ 10,000!
Additionally, each of the 10 fans chosen will receive two Terrace Club tickets to a 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race of their choice at Pocono Raceway, regardless of the outcome of the June 9 race.
