The Pocono 400 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race held annually at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania; it is the first of two Sprint Cup races at Pocono Raceway, with the other being the Gobowling.com 400. The Pocono 400 replaced a 400-mile race at Texas World Speedway on NASCAR's schedule beginning with the 1982 season. It was moved to the former USAC Marlboro Championship Trail date in June, displacing the Indy cars to August. The Pocono 400 will air on NASCAR on FOX in 2015.
The race was a 500 mile event from its inception in 1982, through the 2011 race. Both Pocono races were shortened to 400 miles in 2012, and presently run at that length.
