A person familiar with the 2011 NASCAR schedule says Kansas Speedway will get a second race next year.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Friday on condition of anonymity because the schedule hasn't been released. A formal announcement regarding a second Sprint Cup date at Kansas Speedway may come as soon as next week.

A public schedule released Friday for Kansas Lt. Gov. Troy Findley notes that he plans to give remarks regarding a second race during a media event Tuesday at the speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

A spokeswoman for the governor's office declined to give more details about Tuesday's event.

Speedway President Pat Warren said the track was still working with NASCAR officials but that no media events were planned regarding a second date.
