The biggest topic during Kentucky Speedway's inaugural Sprint Cup Series event has been the nightmarish traffic that has plagued the track all day long.
Traffic was already backed up on I-71, the main route to NASCAR's newest venue, more than eight hours before the race. Things only got worse as the day went on, with fans reporting 20-plus mile backups.
Cars were still lined up and trying to get into the speedway entrance halfway through the race, but fans on Twitter reported being turned away due to a lack of parking spaces.
The post-race traffic jam is feared to be even worse.
With 100 laps remaining in the race, Kentucky Speedway general manager Mark Simendinger released a statement:
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.
