Pocono Raceway announced Wednesday it will hold a pair of 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races next season instead of its traditional 500-mile race lengths.

Shout-out to Pocono Raceway president Brandon Igdalsky for making the move. With Dr. Joseph Mattioli announcing his retirement last weekend at the track, Igdalsky's first big play was to shorten the races.
"The 400 mile distance will make NASCAR racing at Pocono even more exciting," Igdalsky said. "Race strategies will change, fuel mileage calculations will be altered and I firmly believe that our fans will be treated to outstanding racing at the 400 mile distance."
