SPARTA, KY - NASCAR Winston Cup Driver's Ricky Craven and Andy Houston tested for the last two days at Kentucky Speedway". The #32 Tide Ford and the #96 McDonald's Ford of PPI Motorsports worked on chassis and aerodynamic set-ups for future races. Both cars turned laps on Tuesday and Wednesday. The session, Wednesday though, was delayed until the afternoon because of overnight showers.

It was Craven's first trip to the $152 million super speedway, which is situated just outside of Cincinnati, OH, the home base of his primary sponsor Procter and Gamble's Tide Laundry Detergent. "I had heard a lot about the track and how good it was to run on, but I had no idea just how nice it was until I pulled in, " said Craven. "It is definitely a fast track. I would love to have the Winston Cup dates include Kentucky!"

Houston drove in the inaugural "Kroger 225" NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race June 17, 2000 at Kentucky, finishing ninth. Houston said Tuesday, "I like the track a lot. Not only is it like Las Vegas, but it's also a very fast track and that makes for a great place to test different set ups for other super speedways."

Evernham Motorsports postponed its scheduled Wednesday test with the #19 Dodge Car, driven by Casey Atwood.
