“As a member of the Greater Cincinnati business community, we’re excited Kentucky Speedway is here,” ABP Vice President and General Manager Mark Purtilar said. “We’re one of the numerous companies that make up ŒAuto Alley‚ in the I-75 corridor, so our involvement with Kentucky Speedway is a nice fit geographically because we reach a lot of local race fans. Fans previously had to travel to Bristol, Tenn., Indianapolis or Michigan to see the best in auto racing, so we’re happy Kentucky Speedway is here and to be a part of its 2002 season.”
