Kentucky Speedway’s bumpy surface can not only lead to a few chipped teeth. During a test session earlier this week on the 1.5-mile oval outside Cincinnati, Nationwide Series driver Ryan Blaney disclosed that the rough track caused him to suffer a nose bleed in the car.
Tearing around Kentucky certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. But while the track hasn’t been repaved in more than a decade, that’s also led to multiple grooves for drivers to race with.
And that’s why some of them are emphatically against the idea of a repave. Today on NASCAR AMERICA, Sprint Cup veteran Jeff Burton brought forward some alternate solutions to smoothing out Kentucky – and retaining its high level of racing.
