Kentucky Cup NASCAR debut marred by traffic snarl

SPARTA, Ky. - Speedway Motor Bruton Smith was kidding when he said he expected most fans to return home from the track's inaugural NASCAR Sprint Cup race on Saturday night "by Tuesday." Considering how difficult it was for people to get into the track, Tuesday may have been a bit generous.

It doesn't take a genius to understand that traffic is going to be unmanagable when there is one road into a facility with only 2 exits and over 50,000 vehicles. The politicans paid Smith a lot of money to move the race to Ky. If they don't make improvements it will be gone in 3 years because people will not go.

NHS is just as bad as far as access goes, there is enough parking though. I've had it take longer to get out of the parking lot than it did to run the race.
