Auto Club Speedway announced that it will shorten its 2011 Sprint Cup Series race from 500 miles to 400 miles, citing a successful experience last October, when the race was 400 miles instead of 500.
ACS president Gillian Zucker said:
It’s impossible to ignore the on track excitement we experienced at Auto Club Speedway in October, as a result of NASCAR reducing the Chase race from 500 to 400 miles. We’re confident the newly [shortened] Auto Club 400 will continue the momentum we have been experiencing and that March’s race will be the most exciting ever at Auto Club Speedway.
