KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The new road course at Kansas Speedway finally got its test drive.
Sports cars turned laps on the new, 2.36-mile course Wednesday morning. The course was built on the infield during a resurfacing of the outer oval that was completed in time for NASCAR testing a couple of weeks ago. The first Sprint Cup race on the new surface is Oct. 21.
There is no date yet for the first sports car race at Kansas Speedway, but track President Pat Warren said it should be a night race next summer.
Drivers from the Rolex and Continental Tires series took part in testing one week after Grand-Am and American Le Mans announced a merger that will join them as one series beginning in 2014.
