Yeah, and how many people who had tickets ended up sitting on I-71 for the entire race??? Yes, the State of Ohio benefitted from this race. By all the people who had to buy extra gas. And the Speedway is located in a dry county. Can you imagine 120,000 hillbilles being told that there is no alcohol for sale, and that they couldn't bring in their own booze either.

About 20,000 missed the race because of the traffic jam. They won't be back next year!

Bruton and the State of Kentucky will have to spend some large money to solve this problem. It's a simple problem actually, access to the interstate. more specifically the lack of access. With the financial woes facing the state, I'm not able to see much help from them in the immediate future. Bruton is going to have his work cut for himself reworking the traffic within the track grounds to expidite the movement of traffic. Regardless of how much the people of Kentucky want a Cup race, they won't sit in traffic and miss but ONE race before they turn on Old Bruton.
