Track promoters like to call Pocono Raceway the “Tricky Triangle.” But with all of its different challenges, teams and drivers can often feel like they’re in the Bermuda Triangle.

Boasting three turns with different levels of banking plus three straightaways of different length, Pocono can be incredibly difficult to master for even the best.

Kyle Petty was able to win at Pocono in 1993, and in today’s NASCAR AMERICA Minute, he explains how the 2.5-mile Pennsylvania oval is unlike anything else that the Sprint Cup contingent sees all year long.

For more on this weekend’s 400 at Pocono, tune in for today’s episode of NASCAR AMERICA at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra.

As Lewis Hamilton took another step towards his fourth Formula 1 World Championship Sunday at the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas, plenty of other topics of discussion emerged in the wake of Round 17 of the season from Austin.

Hamilton’s win came as his Mercedes AMG Petronas team claimed its fourth consecutive Constructor’s Championship, Scuderia Ferrari came up short once again despite a valiant effort in second and third, and Max Verstappen’s penalty after the race was the major talking point.

Elsewhere Valtteri Bottas struggled again, the Sahara Force India twins continued to pick up points, Carlos Sainz Jr. made a major positive impact in his first start with Renault, Brendon Hartley impressed on debut at Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean and Haas F1 Team endured a tough weekend on Haas’ home soil.
