On Thursday’s edition of NASCAR America, our Jeff Burton broke down how the rough terrain, worn-in track and grooves of Kentucky Speedway separate it from other 1.5 mile tracks.
Saturday marks only the fourth time that Sprint Cup cars have raced on the tri-oval there (Kyle Busch won the first Cup race there in 2011, followed by Brad Keselowski in 2012 and Matt Kenseth in last year’s race).
However, Kentucky Speedway has hosted the Camping World Truck Series since 2000 (first winner: current Sprint Cup star Greg Biffle) and Nationwide Series since 2001 (first winner: also a present-day Sprint Cup star, Kevin Harvick).
