NASCAR RACE PREVIEW #17: Quaker State 400 at KY Speedway tonight, 7:30 P.M. on TNT

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series moves to the Bluegrass State  for the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. Sparta is 30 miles from Cincinnati and 60 miles from Louisville on Interstate 71.

The Quaker State 400 will start at 7:30 p.m. and be televised by TNT.

The expected crowd of 104,000 will see the 400-mile race encompass 267 laps on the 1.5-mile oval.

The asphalt track features a 70-foot wide racing surface with a 12-foot apron banking in the 4 turns. Turn 4 is used by the drivers to gain momentum or hold race position.

The 2011 race was bittersweet for Speedway Motorsports Inc. The track finally was able to land a Cup race but not everyone was able to see it. The traffic and parking debacle saw miles-on-mile long backups on all roads leading to the track (I-71, Highway 35, US Route 42) and patrons had to be turned away by the thousands.

The track purchased land surrounding their land and converted it into parking lots/fields and the state of Kentucky widened Highway 35 and built a pedestrian tunnel.

RECAPPING THE 2011 QUAKER STATE 400:

While most fans had to listen to the race on the radio due to being turned away, the race went on and was very exciting. Kyle Busch was the pole-sitter and led 125 of the 267 laps and held off David Reutimann for his third win of the season. Busch’s win at the time, allowed him to take over the points lead in the Cup Series.

Danica Patrick has been guaranteed a spot in the upcoming Daytona 500 race due to a partnership with Tommy Baldwin Racing.

She will drive the #10 Chevrolet in 10 Sprint Cup Series races in 2012. The # 10 car will start the season with the points Dave Blaney earned in 2011 in the number-36 car.

Teams can transfer or sell points to another team if they want and Tony Stewart of Stewart-Haas Racing acquired them for Patrick to run in the Daytona 500 race which will take place on February 26. It is the season-opening race for NASCAR.

With Blaney finishing 33rd in points in 2011, his car was guaranteed a spot in the starting field in the first five races of this season.

When Patrick is not racing, the #10 car will be driven by David Reutimann in 26 races.

NASCAR Quaker State 400, Kentucky Speedway: Kyle Busch earns 99th career win

Kyle Busch getting ready to talk about career win #99

The most historic day in Kentucky Speedway history, was the culmination of 11 years of hard work and effort by founder Jerry Carroll, current track owner Bruton Smith and the KYS administration, workers and fans.

Saturday’s race under ideal weather conditions and sunny skies and an air temperature in the mid 80′s.

The inaugural Sprint Cup Series Quaker State 400 being held in Sparta, Kentucky during the week inspired Steve Beshear, the Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, to declare the period from July 4-10 as NASCAR Week in the Commonwealth. Beshear served as the Grand Marshal of the race.

Kentucky Speedway, now 12 years old, is located in the Northern Kentucky hills on Interstate 71 South halfway between Cincinnati, Ohio and Louisville, Kentucky.

Kentucky is the first venue added to the Sprint Cup schedule since Chicago and Kansas in 2001.

The inaugural winner of the Quaker State 400 is Kyle Busch, who dominated the race leading 125 of the 267 laps on the 1.5-mile oval track.

Busch pulled away from Jimmie Johnson on a restart with 3 laps to go to win his third race of the year.

With the win, Busch jumps into the points lead at the halfway point of the Sprint Cup series.

The win was the 99th of his career across three NASCAR Series, Sprint Cup, Camping World Trucks and the Nationwide Series.

David Reutimann finished second followed by Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Newman and Carl Edwards rounding out the top five.

Busch, driving the #18 M&M’s Toyota, snapped a string of 18 straight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races where the pole-sitter did not post a victory. Carl Edwards in the #99 Aflac Ford was the most recent driver to go from the pole to Victory Lane at Phoenix International Raceway on November 14, 2010. No cup season has ever been completed without at least one pole-sitter driving to a victory, dating back to Bob Flock’s pole to checker win at Hillsboro, North Carolina’s Occoneechee Speedway on August 7, 1949.

Greg Biffle was fifth, Matt Kenseth was sixth and teammate David Ragan was eighth.

Denny Hamlin finished seventh, Kevin Harvick was ninth and Ryan Newman was 10th.
