The Overton's 150 is a 150-mile-long (241 km) annual race on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Pocono Raceway. The inaugural race was run on July 31, 2010. The race was most notable for its new qualifying procedure, with more than two cars running at the same time on the track. The inaugural winner was Elliott Sadler who became the 21st NASCAR driver to win in all three series.[2] The race was 125 miles (201.168 km) in length from 2010 to 2013; in 2014 it was extended to 150 miles (241.402 km).[3] The event marked the first time that the Truck Series raced in the state of Pennsylvania since 2001 at the now defunct Nazareth Speedway, and the first time that two of the three major NASCAR divisions now raced at Pocono since from 1974 to 2009 it was only the Cup Series that raced there.
