The Kentucky Speedway is gearing up for what they expect to be a big three-day race weekend, but the speedometers won't be the only thing over 100.
"Make sure you've got the sunscreen because it will be warm," said Tim Bray of the Kentucky Speedway.
This year the drivers will race under the lights on Saturday night, which the track hopes will make things bearable, but that's only a small part of the problem.
"We are concerned about the Friday and Saturday (races) during the day. Friday is going to be a warm one," explained Bray.
"Hopefully we'll stay cool," said Jenna Cox, who along with other NASCAR fans knew the mercury would be rising, so they came prepared.
"We brought a bunch of fans, about twenty bags of ice," answered Cox, with her brother chiming in, "and a lot of pop!"
"(We're going) to find as shady of a spot as we can and as many of the cooling stations, if they've got them," added race fan, Steve Chaney.
The Speedway is also doing its part to help fans stay cool inside the racetrack.
"We've got plenty of water, we've got shade under the two big grand stands, and we'll have misting stations and cool zones stationed around the property so fans can take advantage," described Bray, adding that there are also first aid stations set up on the concourse and in the infield.
Another thing the track has done to help keep fans cool is to allow 14x14x14 coolers into the stands. Bray said this is the first year that will be allowed.
While all of these measures are being put in place to combat the high temperatures this weekend, these race fans know if you want to see the race, you have to face the heat.
"It's all part of racing," stated Chaney.
"We're not too worried, we're used to it being hot," chimed Cox.
