This weekend NASCAR heads to the Bluegrass State. The Sprint Cup Series makes its second annual trip to Kentucky Speedway. All three series are back on track at the 1.5-mile speedway.

After last year's "Carmageddon" disaster, here's hoping Kentucky makes the most of its second chance.

Last year's inaugural Cup race winner Kyle Busch returns to Kentucky after four weeks of bad luck. Can the younger Busch brother turn his luck around this weekend?

The Nationwide Series goes back to ovals after an eventful race at Road America. The Camping World Truck Series returns after a three-week hiatus for a rare Thursday night appearance.
