Great news for NASCAR and country music fans: The best of both worlds will collide on July 9 when Clay Walker headlines the Quaker State 400. The country singer will entertain more than 106,000 die hard racing fans before NASCAR veterans Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Tony Stewart compete to cross the finish line first at the Sprint Cup Series inaugural race.

The premiere race will cap off a triple-header weekend of NASCAR events, including a 225-mile Camping World Truck Series battle on July 7 and the National Series Feed The Children 300 on July 8. Tickets, campsites and Fan Zone Pit Road passes, including Fan Zone pre-race concert and driver introduction passes for Kentucky Speedway's first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend, can be reserved online at www.kentuckyspeedway.com, or by phone at 888-652-7223.
