Kentucky Speedway Releases Additional Statement About NASCAR Traffic

Kentucky Speedway has released an additional statement on the traffic situation surrounding Saturday night's inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. The statement expands on the track's initial comments about the gridlock.

Here's the latest from Kentucky Speedway general manager Mark Simendinger:

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 fans@kentuckyspeedway.com. We thank all our fans for giving the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series such a great welcome to our venue.
