While our main focus will always be all the things that make our Commonwealth so great, we will be posting articles that feature things we see and do within our travels outside our home.

    The Monster Energy NASCAR Series Invade The Kentucky Speedway For The Quaker State 400

After a Friday night rain-out of the Xfinity Series, Saturday became…
