No NASCAR fans at Pocono Raceway hurting nearby business

LONG POND, Pa. — Per Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s guidelines for live sporting events, no fans are allowed to attend NASCAR’s doubleheader at Pocono Raceway.

No fans meant the tables aren’t filling up at restaurants near the race track, including at Woody’s Country House.

I mean we just go into green, and people are staying away,” said Susan White, Wood’s Country House owner.

Manager Kim McKee said race weekend or not, people always love ice cream and will stop in.

“Kind of hard on both sides and then the construction on top of it is like everything all the way around is a little bit rough,” added White.

White said like the lack of fans there are no food services at the track for those allowed inside, so they have been getting some of the teams in to eat or for takeout and that’s helped.
