For years, there have been rumblings of Pocono Raceway losing a date on the annual Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series schedule. After all, since 1984, the first year the track had two events, the races have been no more than two months apart from each other.

The last time the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series visited Daytona International Speedway, the season-opening Daytona 500 turned into a game of Survivor. A series of late-race wrecks eliminated major contenders, including a surprising Matt DiBenedetto, and left the race sitting in Denny Hamlin's hands. Hamlin's second Daytona 500 victory came in his first race with new crew chief Chris Gabehart; it was also part of a 1-2-3 Joe Gibbs Racing finish.

The name Chicagoland Speedway has always been a stretch. The much-maligned 1.5-mile oval, the site of Sunday's Camping World 400 is actually an hour's drive and some 45-plus miles from the center of Chicago. That’s like putting a stadium in Stamford, Connecticut, and calling it part of New York City.

The second half of NASCAR's regular season kicks off Sunday in the Pocono mountains with one of the most unique tracks on the circuit. Nicknamed the Tricky Triangle, 2.5-mile Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., has a unique style where all three of its turns have different bankings and lengths. The transitions are so different drivers sometimes feel like it's a mini road course.
