Next week will be a busy time for area racing fans. NASCAR will be making one of two visits to the track, and to many, the summer race is the most popular event for two reasons. First, it includes NASCAR’s top series, the Sprint Cup. Second, these July races take place during a relatively quiet time of the sports calendar.

Next Thursday the Trucks race at the Kentucky Speedway. The XFinity drivers run on Friday July 10th with the Sprint Cuppers going on Saturday night July 11th.
