Who says there’s not a connection between bowling and auto racing?
How about spare tires and rolling a spare? Both sports feature lanes. Try telling a NASCAR driver to go for the 7-10 split and see what happens.
Bowling and racing collide on May 6-7 at Kansas Speedway, when the green flag drops on the NASCAR Trucks Toyota Tundra 250 on Friday night and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Go Bowling 400 on Saturday night.
If you want to test your bowling skills, bowl for free at the two lanes set up at the Go Bowling booth. Baseball fans will also get to see Royals legend George Brett on Saturday, when he attends the driver’s meeting and serves as grand marshal for the Sprint Cup race.
