Sprint Cup Series In Kentucky

NASCAR’s top series is in Kentucky for the weekend.  Starting tonight, the Kentucky Motor Speedway will host the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

This weekend’s race ends a decade long struggle to get a major NASCAR race into the eleven-year-old track in Sparta, Kentucky.

The one-and-a-half-mile track is hosting three national series races this weekend starting with the Nationwide series for trucks today  and tomorrow  and ending with the Quaker State 400 on Saturday night.
