Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - This weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup comes to the Kentucky Speedway for the first time ever.
 

Racing starts Thursday and already the stars of the sport are flocking to the Bluegrass.
 

Some of the semi's that carry the cars, also known as haulers, are parked at Fourth Street Live!
 

One of the cars at Fourth Street is David Ragan's.
 

He drives the UPS car and won the Coke Zero 400 at the Daytona International Speedway last weekend.
 

Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., driver Denny Hamlin will join Fed-Ex and the Red Cross at the Portland Community Center to teach kids about preparing for natural disasters.
