Doug Demmons at The Birmingham News believes that Atlanta is the city most likely to lose a race if Kentucky gets a Sprint Cup date in 2010. ESPN’s David Newton concurs. This news would surely disappoint the people of Atlanta, if they knew there were two Sprint Cup stops in their city.
If the move does, indeed, happen, the Sprint Cup would lose half of its presence in a major media market. On the plus side, the series would welcome sophisticated Kentucky sports fans — like these gentlemen who attended the Kentucky Derby — into the fold.
