The unique triangle-shaped Pocono Raceway is next on the schedule for the Chevrolet IndyCar V6 teams and drivers. On the strength of five victories, Chevrolet heads to the 200-lap/500-mile Pocono 500 on the 2.5-mile tri-oval leading the Verizon IndyCar Series Manufacturer standings.

"We are eager to get back to Pocono," said Chris Berube, Chevrolet Racing Program Manager Verizon IndyCar Series. "We feel Team Chevy can really get it done there this year. Our speedway performance is solid and with double points and 500 miles to race, there is a lot on the line. Our Chevrolet IndyCar V6 engines will be in the sweet spot as most have mileaged out recently which has bolstered our lead in the manufacturer championship."

Team Chevy driver Will Power, No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, brings a 39 point lead over his teammate Helio Castroneves, No. 3 Hitachi Chevrolet, in the 2014 IndyCar driver standings. Power scored the first victory in 2014, bringing the Chevrolet 2.2 liter direct injected twin turbocharged powered race car to Victory Lane at the Streets of St. Petersburg. His second victory of the year that propelled him to the lead in the point standings was race one of the Chevrolet Dual at Detroit. A total of six top-five finishes and eight top-10 runs thus far this season has kept him on top of the standings.

The first oval was the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Three time Indy 500 winner, Castroneves, came within just six one-hundredths of a second from claiming his fourth victory in the iconic track. Castroneves took the momentum to Detroit and scored a top-five finish in race one in the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit, and a dominating victory in Sunday’s race two of Chevrolet sponsored weekend.

Team Penske’s third driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, No. 2 PPG Chevrolet, sits fifth in the driver standings in his first season returning to IndyCar competition.

Scott Dixon, No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Chevrolet, is the defending race champion at Pocono. The 2013 Verizon IndyCar Series champion sits ninth in the standings, and is looking to repeat at Pocono, and score his first win of the 2014 season.

Sebastien Bourdais, No. 11Hydroxycut KVSH Racing Chevrolet, heads to Pocono eighth in the standings, and fueled by the momentum of two top-five finishes in the doubleheader Grand Prix of Houston.

The Chevrolet Racing Display will be onsite for fans at Pocono Raceway to enjoy. Hours of operation of the display located behind the main grandstand will be Saturday, July 5th: 10:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, July 6th: 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. - all ET In addition to many of the great vehicles in the Chevrolet line—up, there are interactive activities to entertain the entire family.
