Beshear Pledges Traffic Fix in Sparta

Gov. Steve Beshear said Sunday he will work with officials at Kentucky Speedway to address the traffic flow and parking problems that plagued Saturday's Quaker State 400. A bottleneck traffic jam at Interstate 71's Exit 57 onto Ky. 35, the road that runs past the track, left thousands stuck in traffic for six hours in many cases and ultimately too late to see the race.
