Pocono race to be a 500-mile event in 2014

INDYCAR fans in the northeast will get more racing on July 4 weekend.
Pocono Raceway announced its IndyCar Series event will be called the Pocono INDYCAR 500 fueled by Sunoco, and add 100 miles (50 laps) to the series’ return to the “Tricky Triangle.”

“I’m very excited about these changes for 2014,” said Brandon Igdalsky, Pocono Raceway President and CEO. “After last year’s IndyCar Series race, droves of open-wheel fans immediately took to our social media channels, sent emails, called us to let us know they wanted more.
