This summer, harness tracks across the country are celebrating Back to the Track, which is a way for new fans to be introduced to harness racing, and to welcome back old fans who have been away for a while.
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is joining the celebration with activities planned for Saturday evening, June 21st,  which is also the eliminations for the prestigious Sun Stakes Saturday the following week.
Starting at 5:00pm, Pocono racing fans can sign up for a tour of the beautiful, state-of-the-art Paddock, by stopping by the Racing Rewards booth.  Tours are scheduled every 20 minutes until Post Time of 6:30pm.  There will also be a registration box for a chance to ride in the Starting Gate, with the winning entry drawn by George Anthony on The Fast Track show after the second race. 
Harness Racing Bingo cards will be available for Racing Rewards guests, and cards can be picked up between from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., where they play along during the races, checking such activities as  “a photo finish”; “a winning driver with green colors”; or “a $2 Exacta paying over $100”.  The first ten fans who have checked the activities and formed an “X” on the card will earn a $50 live racing voucher!
Souvenir Back to the Track weekend t-shirts will be given out on Saturday from 8:00pm until 9:00pm, while supplies last, at the Trackside Concession Stand in the lower Grandstand.  The shirt features all participating tracks’ logos on the back; a collectible item for sure!
Post Time for racing at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is 6:30 p.m., and race nights are Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday.
