Kentucky Speedway is a 1.5 mile (2.4 km) tri-oval speedway in Sparta, Kentucky, which has hosted ARCA, NASCAR and Indy Racing League racing annually since it opened in 2000. The track is currently owned and operated by Speedway Motorsports, Inc. and Jerry Carroll, who, along with four other investors, owned Kentucky Speedway until 2008. The speedway has a grandstand capacity of 107,000.

Construction of the speedway began in 1998 and was completed in mid 2000. In 2005, Kentucky Speedway filed a lawsuit against NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation (ISC). The lawsuit ended in 2009 after Judge William O. Bertelsman dismissed it with NASCAR and ISC winning the suit. The speedway has hosted the Camping World Truck Series, Nationwide Series, IndyCar Series, and the Firestone Indy Lights Series since the track opened, but the track didn't receive a Sprint Cup Series event until 2011.
