LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - NASCAR President Mike Helton says the traffic gridlock at the inaugural Sprint Cup Series at Kentucky is a ``very serious issue'' that must be corrected.
Speaking Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Helton says NASCAR is working with Kentucky Speedway officials to find out why fans were stuck in traffic for hours as they tried to get into Saturday night's race at the track in Sparta, Ky.
Helton says NASCAR ``won't rest'' until it figures out what went wrong and how to correct the problems. Many fans say once they got to the gate, they were turned away by police because the track had run out of parking spaces.
