A team of doctors from UK will be at the Kentucky Speedway this weekend just to treat heat-related illnesses.
Doctors treated more than 300 cases due to the heat during Sprint Cup weekend last year.
They expect that number to be higher this year.
"It's very hot and that infield gets up to 120 to 130 degrees, there's a lot of asphalt and a lot of time. I really believe they've fixed that traffic problem, so there's a lot of people there early, they're going to spend a lot of time in the heat, and they're going to have a great chance to get dehydrated," said Dr. Ryan Stanton with UK HealthCare.
The team of doctors will arrive at the Speedway Thursday and will be there through Saturday at the first aid clinics on the concourse and in the infield.
