Single-race tickets for this summer's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway will go on sale Feb. 8, the track announced Wednesday.
Tickets for the Quaker State 400, as well as for the track's four other NASCAR events this year, go on sale that day beginning at 9 a.m.
Kentucky Speedway officials also said Wednesday that customers will be allowed to carry coolers in to all events for the first time.
"I know our fans will be excited by the new cooler policy," Kentucky Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger said in a news release. "We will support the change by increasing the number of access points and personnel to assure a smooth entry."

Coolers will be limited in size to 14 inches by 14 inches by 14 inches. Customers will be able to carry in snacks, unopened soft drinks and water. Kentucky law prohibits alcoholic beverages of any kind to be carried through the speedway gates.
