KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Speedway will host two NASCAR
Sprint Cup races in 2011.
The track announced Tuesday that it will welcome stock car's top
series June 5 and Oct. 9 of next year.
International Speedway Corp. CEO Lesa France Kennedy says the
region is "more than capable" of hosting two Cup events and the
second race will generate $100 million in economic impact.
The second Cup date is part of a restructured 2011 Cup schedule
that will include a new race at Kentucky Speedway in July.
Phoenix International Raceway also announced Tuesday it will
continue to have two Cup races in 2011. The first race will follow
the Daytona 500 in February.
AutoClub Speedway, which has hosted two Cup races, will host
just one race next season.
