KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Kansas Speedway is preparing for its busy season. 

On Wednesday, rookie driver Erik Jones hit the lanes with Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren in anticipation of the Go Bowling 400. 

The Go Bowling 400 will be the first NASCAR race weekend of the air at Kansas Speedway. 

“It’s actually a pretty racey track," Jones said. "Last year, we’ve really seen the groove widen out, from a lot of the times in the past. We’ve really been riding on the bottom to now we are moving around, running up higher, we make passes on the top, passes on the bottom. It’s a really neat thing that has happened over the past couple of years."

Warren says the Speedway is preparing to get in prime shape for race weekend. 

“If you think about our suites that are seven stories up," Warren said. "Those don’t operate in the winter, so unlike at Arrowhead where everything has to operate year round or in cold weather, we don’t have to do that. We pump antifreeze into lines and all sorts of things. We are getting out of that winter mode and back into our race mode, so we are really excited about it.”

Jones, who resides in Colorado, says his team looks as Kansas Speedway as their home track.
