Road racing set for debut this weekend at Kansas Speedway

Kansas Speedway’s new road course debuts Friday and Saturday with the inaugural SFP Grand-Am Road Racing weekend featuring the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series and second-tier Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. Practice and qualifying for the two races will be on Friday. The Continental racing event starts at 3 p.m. Saturday, followed by the Rolex race at 7. A crowd of about 15,000 is expected, and it will be an educational process for Midwest racing fans accustomed to watching NASCAR Sprint Cup races on the Kansas Speedway tri-oval.
