Kentucky grandstands sell out
Friday, Jul. 01, 2011
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.
