As one of the newest events in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the Quaker State 400 has managed to make a great deal of impact in its very short history. The race, which is set to be an annual event, is held at the Kentucky Speedway in Sparta Kentucky and is 400.5 miles in length and is a total of 267 laps around the track. The race faced a number of setbacks after legal issues between the Kentucky Speedway and NASCAR which started in 2005. After the speedway was sold to Burton Smith, the track began working towards starting a new race and in August of 2010 NASCAR made the official announcement that the track would be holding a Spring Cup Series event in 2011.
