SPARTA, KY (FOX19) -

NASCAR is racing into the Kentucky Speedway for the NASCAR race weekend.

Campers are also flooding into the racetrack grounds for a weekend of fun and speed. The excitement kicks off Thursday with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series “Buckle Up In Your Truck 225.”

On Friday, the NASCAR XFINITY Series “Alsco 300” will take the track.

The weekend will wrap up with the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series “Quaker State 400 presented by Advanced Auto Parts.”

Racegoers can expected to see their favorite racers roar down the track and watch in suspense as the cars round turn 3, which is considered the most difficult turn in all of NASCAR.
