LACETT | Rain keeps Sprint Cup drivers off Kentucky Speedway

Posted: Updated:

SPARTA, KY. (WDRB) – It’s been a wet and rough couple of days at Kentucky Speedway. For the second straight day, Sprint Cup teams were unable to practice due to rain.   

“I think most of us wanted yesterday and not just yesterday but a day to think about it and come up with other ideas,” said Jamie McMurray.

Drivers had hoped to use their practice time to adjust to the new rules package put in place by NASCAR for this Saturday’s Quaker State 400.

“It would have been nice to do some testing in,” added Greg Biffle. “But at the same time, it’s fair for everyone.”  

NASCAR officials hope to have Sprint Cup drivers practice for at least 90 minutes prior to Saturday’s race.

Biffle said his team needs just an hour.

“I think these teams and the technology that we have are so smart, and I think everybody has had this package in the wind tunnel.”

Saturday’s Quaker State 400 is scheduled to start at 7:30.
