KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - The first road race at Kansas Speedway is scheduled for next August.
The Rolex Sports Car Series and Continental Sports Car Challenge Series will take to the new road course built inside the speedway under the lights on Aug. 16-17, 2013. The course was built this summer during an extensive renovation to Kansas Speedway.
The two NASCAR races scheduled for the tri-oval next year are April 19-21 and Oct. 4-6. The road race gives the speedway a third date of racing on the calendar.
