LONG POND, Pa. - The IndyCar Series will return to Pocono Raceway in 2013 and host doubleheaders at Detroit, Toronto and new venue Houston for a 19-race schedule.

The July 7 race at Pocono will be a 400-miler and be included in a Triple Crown challenge by IndyCar. A $1 million bonus will go to the driver who can win the Indianapolis 500, Pocono and the Oct. 19 finale at Fontana.

A $250,000 bonus will be awarded if a driver wins two of the three Triple Crown events.

The season will open March 24 at St. Petersburg and return to 14 of the 15 venues it visited in 2012. Off the schedule is Edmonton, and Pocono and Houston are the new additions.

Pocono Raceway last hosted an IndyCar race in 1989.

Tickets for the July 7 race are available on the Pocono Raceway's website.
