On Wednesday Morning, CRCIndustries.com and Pocono Raceway officially unveiled their partnership for the track’s upcoming race weekend at the end of June, which includes the title sponsorship of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on Saturday, June 26, which will be known as the CRC Brakleen 150.
CRC, an industry-leading global supplier of specialty products and formulatons, is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its flagship brand, Brakleen®, the No. 1 selling brake parts cleaner worldwide.
The partnership will come together for Pocono Raceway’s annual race weekend, which this year, will feature a total of five NASCAR and ARCA events over the three-day weekend. The green flag for the CRC Brakleen 150 will wave at noon on Saturday, June 26th.
“The timing of Brakleen’s 50th anniversary with Pocono Raceway’s 50th anniversary made this a great year to partner together,” noted Perry Cozzone, CEO of CRC Industries. “Both companies have such a rich history in the state of Pennsylvania, serving the passions of people who love products that work fast, and vehicles that run fast. CRC is thrilled to be a part of this historic event.”
Nestled in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, “The Tricky Triangle” is a staple on the NASCAR circuit, located merely 80 miles from CRC headquarters in Horsham, Pennsylvania. Also celebrating the 50th year of racing on the 2.5-mile facility, the landmark is known for its unique configuration and has the longest frontstretch in motorsports.
“We are thrilled to welcome CRC Industries and Brakleen to the Pocono Raceway family,” said Pocono Raceway President Ben May. “CRC is a well-recognized name in the motorsports and automotive world. Having them as part of our 2021 NASCAR Doubleheader Weekend is special, especially as partners on Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. Saturday ticket holders will get to see two races for the price of one – the CRC Brakleen 150 and the weekend’s first of two NASCAR Cup Series races.”
Set to operate at full capacity, Pocono Raceway’s jam-packed doubleheader weekend will include an ARCA Menards Series event on Friday, June 25, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series CRC Brakleen 150 and a NASCAR Cup Series race on Saturday, June 26, followed up by the NASCAR Xfinity Series and the second of two NASCAR Cup Series events on Sunday, June 27.
