SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Simmering drivers in overheating cars, all vying for an open lane and struggling to get out of heavy traffic - and that was just the fans on the way to Kentucky Speedway a year ago.
Designed to be a showcase of big-time racing in the commonwealth, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race instead was a fiasco. Some may remember that Kyle Busch won. But almost everybody recalls the long lines of angry drivers who sat for hours in traffic, many eventually forced to turn around and go home.
Now the stock cars have returned. Officials have taken major steps to make sure the problems have been alleviated. And the drivers vow that they'll do their part to help the fans forget all that went wrong off from the track.
