It’s been nearly 41 years since NASCAR made its de­but at Po­cono Race­way in Penn­syl­va­nia. Richard Petty won that race, the 1974 Puro­la­tor 500, af­ter lead­ing 152 laps. Since then, the track has hosted only Sprint Cup and Camp­ing World Truck Se­ries events. But that changes Satur­day when the XFIN­ITY Se­ries makes its de­but at the 2.5-mile tri­an­gle with the Po­cono Green 250. Forty cars are en­tered in the event that pro­vides some­what of a home race for se­ries spon­sor XFIN­ITY, based in Philadel­phia.
