And, the 1.5-mile track became a destination stop on the schedule as the area around the Speedway grew into a mini city of its own, complete with retail shopping, dining, the Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway, a minor league baseball stadium and an MLS soccer stadium. In August 2010, Kansas Speedway was awarded a second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race beginning in 2011. In 2012, Kansas Speedway added variable banking of 17-20 degrees in each of the turns and an infi eld road course to the facility between the April and October race events.
