Slugger factory makes NASCAR bats

NASCAR drivers coming to Kentucky next week will be hit with a Louisville tradition. Friday morning, more than 300 special-edition NASCAR Louisville Slugger bats were rolled out of the Slugger factory. They feature the logo for the inaugural Sprint Cup race at the Kentucky Speedway, which takes place July 9. The bats have the names of the drivers they'll be given to engraved on the side. "The Sprint Cup series is really like the big league of auto racing," said Anne Jewell, executive director of the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.

"What better gift for the folks associated with this race than the official bat of the major leagues, and it's such an important event coming to Kentucky as well."

Along with drivers, official team members and executives will be given the special bats. They will not be sold to the public. Fox 41
