Kentucky Speedway's "Quaker State 400" Road Tour visited the Boone National Guard Center in Frankfort, Ky., where track General Manager Mark Simendinger issued a special invitation to personnel to attend the venue's June 28-30 NASCAR tripleheader weekend.

"It's always special when we can visit with the men and women who serve our great nation. We simply wanted to let them know we're ready to roll out the red carpet when they visit to watch their driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., race for our NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title," Simendinger said.

This season's "Quaker State 400" anchors a NASCAR tripleheader that opens Thursday, June 28 with the Camping World Truck Series "UNOH 225" and continues Friday, June 29 with the Nationwide Series "Feed The Children 300."

Tickets, campsites and daily infield Fan Zone passes for all events can be purchased through the Tickets page of this Web site, by calling 859-578-2300 or visiting the Kentucky Speedway corporate offices at 1 Speedway Drive, Sparta, Ky., 41086 just off of Interstate 71 Exit 57 and the newly-expanded, seven-lane Kentucky Highway 35.
