tarar@herald-mail.com Washington County Commissioner John C. Munson thinks a stock car racetrack would be a good fit here, and he wants his fellow board members to support the idea. Munson suggested on Tuesday that the board write a letter to the owner of Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa., asking him to build a track in Washington County. Munson said he got the idea after he heard that the owner of Pocono Raceway wanted to upgrade a dirt track in Cumberland, Md., to possibly attract national stock car racing.
