Jun 26, 2014

NASCAR fans could get a taste of Kentucky honey this weekend. Honey produced in Letcher County will be part of the Kentucky Proud display on Saturday during the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta.

In collaboration with the state agriculture department, Kentucky Proud products will be served at the Sparta track for the remainder of the racing season.  

Ted Ratliff has been producing honey in eastern Kentucky for three years. Ratliff says he was approached by the state agriculture department about using his honey at the northern Kentucky track.
