From the Kentucky Speedway
SPARTA, Ky. (February 2008) Kentucky Speedway has adjusted its 2008 schedule and will now play host to its ARCA RE/MAX Series Kentucky 150 and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Built Ford Tough 225 Presented by the Greater Cincinnati Ford Dealers events July 18-19.
The events were originally scheduled July 11-12. Dates were changed to best accommodate NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series broadcast agreements with SPEED Channel.
This adjustment provides us a great opportunity to place our July ARCA RE/MAX Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events in an even stronger national spotlight as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will not compete that weekend. We thank Ford, the Greater Cincinnati Ford Dealers, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, ARCA RE/MAX Series and SPEED Channel officials for partnering with us to help gain the maximum exposure for our July race events, Kentucky Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager Mark F. Cassis said.
All single-event and season tickets previously sold for both July races will be honored on the new dates. The ARCA RE/MAX Series Kentucky 150 will take the green flag at 8 p.m. on July 18. The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Built Ford Tough 225 Presented by the Greater Cincinnati Ford Dealers will begin at 7 p.m. on July 19.
"We're pleased to cooperate with Kentucky Speedway, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and Speed Channel in moving our event date to July 18," said ARCA President Ron Drager. "We have great relationships with all three entities and this kind of lead time allows everyone associated with the ARCA RE/MAX Series to plan for July 18."
