LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Speedway has paid an overdue bill of nearly $300,000 to Kentucky State Police for providing security on the track’s grounds during four major race weeks in 2012 and 2013.

According to The Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1ltsWg0 ), State Police Commissioner Rodney Brewer says Speedway Motorsports sent a check for $299,125.86 by express mail from its corporate headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. Speedway Motorsports owns the track in Gallatin County.

The payment was received after The Courier-Journal reported that the state police had been pressing the track since last August for payment for races in 2012 and last year.

The track has had agreements with the state police to provide security during major events, and the track made timely payments under those agreements through 2011.
