Busch, Keselowski to race full Ky. Speedway Tripleheader

Posted: Updated:

The Kentucky Speedway's only two NASCAR Spring Cup Series race winners, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, plan to race head-to-head during the track's tripleheader weekend.

The two will race three times during the June 27-29 tripleheader weekend, as the compete for the checkered flags in the Quaker State 400.

"Having two of our most successful drivers square off for all three of our races certainly ratchets up the intensity for our weekend. Both Kyle and Brad won't be satisfied unless they win them all," Kentucky Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger said.

Both will race a full Kentucky NASCAR tripleheader for the second time in their career. Busch dod so in 2011 and Keselowski in 2012. 

Busch's record at the track features four different victories in four different titles. Overall, the 28-year-old has won six top-five and nine top-10 finishes, while leading 762 of the 2,086 Kentucky Speedway laps he's raced through 11 career starts in four series.

Keselowski, the reigning NSCS champion, will defend his 2012 Quaker State 400. He claimed a 2011 Feed The Children 300 victory and earned his NCWTS track-best second-place finish in last season's UNOH 225. 

Race tickets and infield Fan Zone passes can be purchased at www.KentuckySpeedway.com, (859) 578-2300 and at the speedway ticket office.
