Kyle Busch's dominant victory at the 1.5-mile oval on Saturday night was overshadowed by massive traffic woes that left fans fuming, drivers concerned and track officials promising to address the issue before the circuit comes back next summer.
Cars were still trickling into the venue halfway through the 400-mile race, with some still stuck in the gridlock ordered to turn around so the track could begin it's exit strategy.
Smith knew the speedway's somewhat remote location would be an issue, calling nearby Interstate 71 a ``disaster'' in the days before the race. It turned out to be even worse than he imagined.
