    I didn’t go to the inaugural Sprint Race at the Kentucky Speedway Saturday night though I am a fan of NASCAR.   I wish I could have gone even though I wouldn’t have liked the traffic even if it went smoothly and especially not the way it was on this race day. Traffic around the two NASCAR events that I have personally attended was bad though not impossible or horrendous like it must have been Saturday. I have been to Bristol and Talladega but we went early and stayed late each time so the traffic though heavy was bearable.
