Packed parking lots, gridlock and no view of the race left many NASCAR fans upset.
People are still sounding off, frustrated that they waited in lines for hours this weekend at the Kentucky Speedway.
Some drivers trying to get to the Quaker State 400 were stuck in traffic and didn't make it to the race.
Some didn't have a place to park.
"They weren't prepared. Clearly, they weren't prepared. I'm sitting here with four tickets, $458 tickets in my purse..no good," says Yvonne Nice, who drove from Ohio, and missed the race due to traffic.
"We never even got into the race because my sister and I are both handicapped and they had no place for us to go, so we spend $300 worth on tickets that just flew out the window," says Rosa Hockenberry, who traveled from Breckinridge County.
The Kentucky Speedway released this statement from Kentucky Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger on Sunday evening:
"Kentucky Speedway regrets the traffic conditions surrounding the ‘Quaker State 400.' We're committed to working with NASCAR, state and local officials and traffic experts to assure that this never happens again. The details of these improvements will be announced over time as they are formulated.
"We also recognize the traffic problems resulted in some fans not being able to attend the ‘Quaker State 400.' We are gathering information on this and will announce a policy for these affected fans within seven days."
Fan should learn this week, what the Kentucky Speedway plans to do.
While this is what some fans were hoping to hear, for others, it's an experience they don't plan on trying again.
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway sent out a Twitter message on Sunday afternoon encouraging people to hold on to their tickets.
They say they will have a special announcement on Monday regarding those tickets and the Brickyard 400.
