Nazareth's Marco Andretti was in Long Pond Thursday getting a feel for the track before next month's IndyCar Pocono 500.

The Verizon IndyCar series returned to Long Pond last year for the first time since 1989. Nazareth's own Marco Andretti won the pole for the race, and had the best car on raceday. Unfortunately he ran out of fuel as the race was ending and limped over the start/finish line.  He's trying to put that setback behind him as he approaches next month's race which will be 100 miles longer than last year's event.
