Kentucky Speedway Pleased With This Year's Sprint Cup Race After Past Struggles
Published June 30, 2014
BUMPS IN THE ROAD: NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. said of Kentucky Speedway's track surface, "It just sucks, man. God almighty. It's so brutal. It's just terrible, man. And I hate it for the speedway, because they just got their date. But man, it's the most miserable thing out there. Ain't nothing about that I want to do over again. I'm glad it's over." Driver Kyle Busch added, "If you fix the start-finish line, just pave the straightaway there where it's the roughest, I think we'd all be very grateful." Simendinger said, "We will evaluate the track at the end of the season. I'm not sure when or if we're going to repave the track. It's one of those deals where you will know when it has to happen" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 6/30).
