  • Kentucky Speedway fails to impress

    The race started at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Leaving Elizabethtown at 1 p.m. should provide plenty of time to reach the Kentucky Speedway and NASCAR’s Sprint Cup debut in the Bluegrass State.

    At 2:15 p.m., we were 19 miles from the track on Interstate 71.

    That’s more than five hours before the white flag.

    At 8:45 p.m. — 75 minutes after the race began — we pulled into the main road leading to the track, still three miles away. That’s 16 miles in 6 1/2 hours. That’s a snail’s pace, not a NASCAR race.
