According to a Facebook post, the Lake Cumberland Speedway was hit by a possible tornado due to storms in Kentucky. The track was hit sometime on Friday.
At this time, racing is on hold.
“We are heartbroken the tornado hit the speedway,” the track said in a post. “Ticket buildings, light poles, scoreboard, signs, fences, bleachers — everything all destroyed that we’ve worked so hard on. However, we will get thru this and get prepared for (the) May 14th event someway somehow. Just thankful no one was hurt.”

Lake Cumberland Speedway is celebrating its 40th season in 2022.
While the track officials believe that they were hit by a tornado, the weather professionals will confirm if they did in the coming days. The track could have potentially suffered damage from the strong winds of the storm.

“It is just devastating,” track owner Brandon Hardgrove said to WYMT. “We have put so much into the Lake Cumberland Speedway after we opened back up after we closed down for a few years. We have built it into something that I had a vision for. To walk out and see our dreams just crushed.”
