Kentucky Speedway to start installing tunnel On Tuesday, February 14th, construction crews will begin installing sections of a 42-foot-wide tunnel beneath Kentucky Highway 35 that will connect new Kentucky Speedway parking fields to the facility's original property. A crane will install the tunnel in 25 sections that are 42-feet wide and approximately 11 feet high. The tunnel and parking fields are elements of ongoing projects that will ultimately expand parking while improving automotive and pedestrian traffic flows during Kentucky Speedway events. Additional elements include widening the I-71 ramp at Exit 57 and widening Ky. 35.
The first of two 2012 Kentucky Speedway event weekends will feature the June 30 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series "Quaker State 400," the June 29 NASCAR Nationwide Series "Feed The Children 300" and June 28 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series "UNOH 225."
The second weekend will spotlight the Sept. 21 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series "Kentucky 201" and Sept. 22 NASCAR Nationwide Series "Kentucky 300."
