We've had an overwhelming response to our inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quaker State 400. We know we had challenges related to traffic. We're already planning improvements and looking forward to a much better situation for next year's event.
Now, track officials have added more to their original statement concerning the many fans who were displeased about the traffic situations on Saturday night, as well as the fans who did not make it in time to view the race.
The following is the new statement by Kentucky Speedway:
“Kentucky Speedway regrets the traffic conditions surrounding the Quaker State 400. We’re committed to working with NASCAR, state and local officials and traffic experts to assure that this never happens again. The details of these improvements will be announced over time as they are formulated.
We also recognize the traffic problems resulted in some fans not being able to attend the Quaker State 400. We are gathering information on this and will announce a policy for these affected fans within seven days.
Our Quaker State 400 ticket holders are invited to share their experiences with us through firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank all our fans for giving the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series such a great welcome to our venue.”
