Kentucky Speedway ticket wait almost over
For fans who have wanted to buy tickets for the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway but didn't want to commit to a season ticket package, the wait is almost over.

The track will put individual race tickets on sale at 9 a.m. Jan. 12.

The hottest ticket of the six races at the speedway this year is certain to be the inaugural Cup race on July 9. Ticket prices for the 400-mile Saturday night race will range from $70-$110 depending on seat location.

"I can guarantee you that there are people that have just been waiting, because I hear from them," general manager Mark Simendinger said. "I would certainly suspect (the response) is going to be pretty significant."

The Cup race will cap a tripleheader weekend that includes a Camping World Truck Series race July 7 and a Nationwide Series race July 8. A second tripleheader weekend is scheduled in October. The truck series will return Oct. 1 and the IZOD IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights will race Oct. 2.

Tickets for the Nationwide Series race will range from $40-$75. Tickets for the IndyCar Series and Indy Lights doubleheader will run from $45-$80. General admission tickets for the Truck Series races are $30 or $40. Premium seating in the Bluegrass Club and Kentucky Club will be priced separately.

"I don't think price is going to keep people from coming to the track," Simendinger said. "That's a reflection of the economy and it's also a reflection that we've got a lot of seats."

Tickets will be sold at www.kentucky-speedway.com, by phone at 888-652-7223 and at the speedway's offices in Fort Mitchell and Sparta. Cincinnati.com
