Kentucky Speedway general manager Mark Simendinger said there’s no excuse for last year’s traffic blunders at the inaugural Sprint Cup Series race at the track in Sparta.

“I want to say one more time how sorry I am that that whole thing occurred,” Simendinger said Tuesday. “… We just weren’t as ready as we thought we were.”

While 107,000-plus fans clogged access roads and many missed the race, those who attended didn’t see much of the anticipated show either.
