Fans Invited to Choose Kentucky Speedway's Top Moments
Kentucky Speedway's 11-year history has been filled with many memorable moments from Dario Franchitti's IndyCar Series machine flying inverted down the frontstretch to the ultra-tight NASCAR Nationwide Series race finish between Todd Bodine and Greg Biffle to Carl Edwards' first major NASCAR victory to Sarah Fisher's historic pole award win.
Before the track opens its Sprint Cup Series era, it's inviting fans for their help in ranking the top speedway moments.
Fans can be a part of NASCAR and Kentucky Speedway history July 9 when the Sprint Cup Series makes its first appearance at the 106,000 capacity facility. The race concludes a 2011 season-sopening weekend which also features a 225-mile NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race July 7 and a 300-mile NASCAR Nationwide Series event July 8.
The season continues Oct. 1 with a return engagement with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and an Oct. 2 open-wheel doubleheader featuring a 300-mile IZOD IndyCar Series battle and 100-mile Firestone Indy Lights sprint.
