NASCAR | Kentucky Speedway prepared for three prime time races

06/30/2016 06:30 AM

July 7 through July 9, the Kentucky Speeway will be open for business as Nascar comes to the Bluegrass. The Speedway will host three prime time races under the lights in Sparta, and it will be one of the more exciting weekends for the track in a long time. Recent renovations to the track surface and banking increases have given the Speedway a new identity that is yet to be raced on.

Speedway General Manager, Mark Simendinger was on the show to talk about the major storylines to watch next weekend.
