Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren says fans who are planning to attend this coming weekend’s Sprint Cup-Camping World Truck Series doubleheader should expect slightly longer waits for security checks in the wake of Monday’s bombings in Boston.


Warren told ESPN-dot-com that the track treats the safety and security of its fans seriously, and that “Probably, it’s a good idea for people to plan on a little more time getting through the gates, having their backpacks checked, their coolers checked, those kind of things.”

Warren added that the ultimate goal, despite inconveniences, is to provide fan safety for Saturday’s S-F-P 250 Truck Series race and Sunday’s S-T-P 400 Sprint Cup Series event. Kansas Speedway’s security policies and procedures are the same now as those put in place following the September 2001 terrorist attacks.
