Pocono solar farm powers NASCAR green plans
Racing relies on tens of thousands of gallons of fuel each year to power cars, but when Pocono Raceway flipped the switch on its 25-acre solar farm last week for the Pennsylvania 500, a NASCAR track became the world's largest solar-powered sports facility.

Really not impressed that it was solar power that put the spotlight on Elliott Sadler almost being killed because of POCONO's neglect in finishing the safety barriers ALL the way around the track on both sides. Steve Park and Jr. had a bad crash into that same kind of barrier in 2001. Seems like 9 years would have been time to get this corrected. Green doesn't really impress me. Life and Death does.
