NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES DRIVERS LOOKING FORWARD TO NIGHT RACE AT KANSAS SPEEDWAY
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (April 15, 2014) – Night racing.
Just saying the words got several NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers excited during today’s Goodyear Tire Test at Kansas Speedway.
“I love night races and racing at Kansas Speedway,” said Roush Fenway Racing’s Ricky Stenhouse. “I think racing at this place at night is going to be a lot of fun and fans are really going to enjoy it. With everything going at Kansas Speedway outside the racetrack, it is probably one of favorites of the drivers.”
“We’re racing at night?” asked Furniture Row Racing’s Martin Truex, as local media answered a resounding yes. “I think Kansas at night is going to be fun, there is just something about the way it feels. It will be exciting and fun, Kansas has put on some great races over the years and one that I’ve had success at. There is just something special about night racing.”
“I love night racing, too,” said Chip Ganassi Racing’s Kyle Larson, who will be racing in his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway on May 10. “The racing is more exciting, I don’t know if it is the sparks or what, but the intensity level is up on a night race.”
