 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The long-awaited NASCAR Sprint Cup event at Kentucky Speedway has veered into state politics after the massive traffic jam left some fans stuck in their cars listening to the race on radio.
Two days after the race, Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams called the traffic gridlock a national embarrassment. On Monday he called for legislative hearings to review the traffic situation at the northern Kentucky track.
The backups stretched for miles at the Saturday night event. Frustrated ticketholders lit up social networks to vent their anger at missing all or part of the race.
Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear, who is being challenged by Williams in the November election, has touted Kentucky landing the race. Beshear says he is putting together a team of state and local officials to make improvements.
