Kansas Speedway Announces Start Time for 2010 Kansas 400
As Kansas Speedway celebrates its 10th season in 2010, race fans can celebrate an earlier start time for the 2010 Kansas 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
“Race fans have continually asked for consistent start times and NASCAR and the TV partners have done a great job working with everyone for these new times,” said Kansas Speedway President Jeff Boerger. “I know our fans will appreciate the new start time for the 2010 Kansas 400.”
The Oct. 3, 2010 race, which is a part of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, will start at Noon CT/1 PM ET, an hour earlier than the 2009 start time for the Price Chopper 400 presented by Kraft Foods.
Tony Stewart captured his second win at Kansas Speedway in this year’s Price Chopper 400 presented by Kraft Foods, becoming only the second Sprint Cup Series driver to win two races at Kansas Speedway (Jeff Gordon, 2001-02).
Start times for other Kansas Speedway races will be announced at a later date.
Beginning in 2010, Kansas Speedway is offering fans several ticket options, including the opportunity to purchase a weekend-only ticket for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kansas 400 and the NASCAR Nationwide Series Kansas Lottery 300 Oct. 2-3, 2010. Tickets for the IndyCar Series Road Runner Turbo Indy 300 on May 1, 2010 and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series O’Reilly Auto Parts 250 on May 2, 2010 will be sold as individual races. Fans will still have the opportunity to purchase a season ticket that includes all four of these great races and will include a Track Pass for access to the Kansas Speedway infield for each Sunday race.
