Racecar fans have been headed to Sparta for the weekend races. Just in time, the 'Fan Zone' opened on Thursday, enabling enthusiasts to get a true NASCAR experience.
The infield passes give fans access to pit road during specific times and an area surrounding Victory Lane on race days.
Attendees can participate in many skill-testing events, including changing a tire like the pros and a racecar simulator.
With the heat rolling into the Tri-state, it's also important that fans keep cool. One organization called Kentucky Raceway Ministries works to do just that.
The ministry provides free water as well as handicap transportation for fans. With about sixty churches across the nation, members have been providing help for fans for thirteen years.
According to the Kentucky Speedway's website, Fan Zone passes must be purchased with a corresponding race day ticket for admission.
