Not just home to a certain fried chicken chain, the Bluegrass State also houses the Kentucky Speedway – a host of annual NASCAR, ARCA and Indy Racing League events since 2000. Get in gear by booking your Kentucky stay on Culture Trip.

Start your engines – or let the pilot fire up the plane – and get ready for a high-octane weekend at the Kentucky Speedway. Just a little south of the border Kentucky shares with Ohio’s Queen City, the Kentucky Speedway has played host to all manner of motorsports and local races. Don’t let the fun pass you by when you stay at one of these quick and easy hotels nearby.

Stay at Ramada by Wyndham and you’ll be at the Kentucky Speedway before you pull your car out of first gear. You’ll need nothing more than free breakfast, the indoor pool and clean queen rooms to feel at home – and as Ramada has all three. With race day already on the books, use your remaining time wisely to taste how 11 generations of bootleg moonshining gave the Neeley Family Distillery overnight fame – once they started pouring right by the law.

Red Roof Inn is napping quietly on Slumber Lane, so it’s stating the obvious to say that you’ll get more than a few solid winks of sleep. When you’re ready and rested, you’ll skid into the Kentucky Speedway within a 15-minute drive from Red Roof Inn, but you need not drive as far for an enjoyable evening. The riverside town of Carrollton is half the distance from the hotel – and the homemade peanut butter silk pie at Welch’s Riverside Restaurant cannot be missed.
