SPARTA, Ky. – The Kentucky Speedway says it has sold out of grandstand tickets for its inaugural Sprint Cup race on July 9.

Speedway officials said in a statement that infield pit and standing-room-only tickets are all that's left for the Quaker State 400.

Kentucky Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger says selling all 107,000 grandstand tickets more than a week before the race "is a great testament to this market and our fans."

The 400-mile race will conclude a tripleheader NASCAR weekend that opens with a 225-mile Camping World Truck Series battle on July 7 and spotlights a 300-mile NASCAR Nationwide Series event on July 8.
