Do you have what it takes to be Tricky at Pocono?


Pocono Raceway is on the hunt for the next Tricky The Fox.

Raceway officials are holding an open tryout on Saturday, May 21, for the track’s next mascot – aka Tricky.

Per a media release, here’s what the track is looking for in its next mascot: “Are you fun, respectful and high energy with a flair for entertainment? Do you think you have what it takes to represent Pocono Raceway as its mascot, Tricky The Fox?”

The tryout will be at 10 a.m. ET in Victory Lane at the track. If weather becomes an issue, the tryouts will be held indoors at the Mint Julep Club.

“Those interested in the position will be asked to simulate driver introductions as part of the audition and then participate in a brief interview,” the track release said. “Finalists will then perform at a local elementary school before a winner is chosen.

“Tricky The Fox represents Pocono Raceway not only on race weekends but also at a bevy of community events.”
