The ABC Supply 500 IndyCar Series race is held at the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA. Sunday, August 23rd, defending champ, Juan Pablo Montoya, will battle it out for the checkered flag along with Graham Rahal, Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves, Will Power, Josef Newgarden, and all of the IndyCar stars. As part of the opening ceremony, Team Fastrax™ will be performing an amazing and patriotic aerial display with their 2,500 sq. ft. and three 1,100 sq. ft. American Flags.

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and member of Team Fastrax™, said, “We are honored to be performing our patriotic American Flag skydive at such a thrilling event. The ABC Supply 500 is a very competitive race, and it’s sure to be an exciting weekend.”

According to the raceway website, Pocono is in the Magic Triangle – New York, Philadelphia and Pocono Raceway are all 90 miles away from each other – with New York as the #1 TV market and Philadelphia as the #4 TV market. Pocono is within 200 miles of 60 million people and when you consider that the average race fan travels 300 miles, they are in the highest population density of any other race track. Their unusual triangular configuration is conducive to many lead changes especially with the longest straightaway and the widest main straight with the longest and widest Pit Road. All of these features give Pocono uniqueness – a very enjoyable difference.
