The Kentucky Motor Speedway is hoping it is them. Last season, thousands of fans never even made it into the track to see the first cup race there. So the state of Kentucky and Bruton Smith threw millions at increased lanes, a pedestrian tunnel and more parking. We will find out on Saturday night if it will actually work.
As for actually racing, Kyle Busch was the winner last year the one and only cup race at Kentucky.
"It was a great race for us last year," said Busch I remember just being pretty quick right off the track and being able to have a fast car during the test that we had and during the practice session. Qualifying got rained out and then we still got to start up front because of the practice speeds. Feel good about it again this year."
Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards and and Ryan Newman could also be contenders Saturday night under the lights. Those three were all in the top five one year ago.
