Kentucky Speedway's 2016 season schedule is finalized with the return of a Sept. 23 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards 150-mile event for the 23rd time in the tracks series history.

"We are proud of our association with the ARCA Racing Series and excited to host them again in 2016. Past ARCA winners at Kentucky include Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. It has been a notable starting point for some great careers," said General Manager Mark Simendinger.

Last year's ARCA Racing Series Crosley 150, postponed a day due to rain, and had its share of excitement when leader Austin Cindric blew a left front tire with 20 laps remaining in the racing handing the lead to NASCAR XFINITY Series regular Ryan Reed. It was Reed's first ARCA Racing Series victory at Kentucky taking home the much anticipated Crosley jukebox that now sits in his living room.

"My Crosley Brands jukebox is the centerpiece of my living room and definitely a conversation starter," said Reed. "I think my Daytona win trophy is pretty cool but the jukebox definitely rivals that as my coolest trophy."

Kentucky Speedway's 2016 season will begin in July with the return of a NASCAR tripleheader weekend that is anchored by the July 9 Sprint Cup Series Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts for the sixth time in series track history. The Camping World Truck Series will get the tripleheader started with a 225-mile event Thursday, July 7 and the NXS Series 300-mile event is Friday, July 8.

The NASCAR XFINITY Series will make its second appearance at the track next season Saturday, Sept. 24 with the ARS to conclude a September weekend of racing at the track 1.5-mile tri-oval.
