Racing begins Thursday, July 8 with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) UNOH 225 and continues July 10 with a jam-packed Liftmaster Pole Day made up of NASCAR Sprint Cup and NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) qualifying followed by 300 miles of NXS racing spotlighting Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s first series start on one NASCAR's most challenging tri-ovals.

The speedway's fifth NSCS Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts will provide the weekend finale July 11. Team Penske's Brad Keselowski will take aim at his second straight and third event title, but will have to battle the series' best such as previous track winners Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch along with Jeff Gordon, who needs a Kentucky title to own a victory at every series venue at which he's competed during his Hall of Fame career.

The multi-faceted race day will deliver country music star Jerrod Niemann in concert, a performance and flyover from the AeroShell Aerobatic Team in addition to a bustling concourse loaded with interactive displays and live entertainment.
