For the second consecutive year, NASCAR is coming to Philadelphia!
Pocono Raceway, Dover International Speedway and Comcast have all partnered together for the NASCAR Xfinity Philadelphia Takeover, which will bring 12 drivers across seven teams and eight cars to the streets of Philadelphia for an all-day affair on Tuesday, May 9.
Things will kick off with a fan experience, including a driver meet and greet, at 10:00 a.m. and will close with a special first pitch at the Phillies game against the Seattle Mariners at Citizens Bank Park.
The series of events will also include a parade through downtown Philadelphia, a pit stop at City Hall, a”burnout” on Market Street and much, much more.
Drivers slated to take part in the day’s activities include Justin Allgaier, Michael Annett, William Byron, Cole Custer, Spencer Gallagher, Daniel Hemric, Brandon Jones, Ben Kennedy, Blake Koch, Brennan Poole, Ryan Reed and Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr.
