New Hampshire Motor Speedway


 
 
New Hampshire Motor Speedway opened as “New Hampshire International Speedway” on June 5, 1990.  Located on approximately 1,200 acres, the multi-use complex is the largest sports facility in New England and features a 1.058-mile oval speedway, with a total capacity for 105,491 spectators, and a 1.6-mile road course.


It hosted its first NASCAR race in the form of the Busch Series race on July 15, 1990.  Three years later on July 11, 1993, Rusty Wallace won the inaugural Cup race at the track and it has entertained NASCAR’s premier series every year since.  In 1997, NHMS was awarded a second Cup race, which became a historic event on Sept. 19, 2004, when the track hosted the first Chase for the Nextel Cup race in history.


On November 2, 2007, O. Bruton Smith, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Speedway Motorsports, Inc., agreed to purchase New Hampshire International Speedway from Bob and Gary Bahre. Closing documents were completed on January 11, 2008, finalizing the purchase of the newly renamed New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

In addition to the major NASCAR races, the track hosts several regional racing series, including the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and American-Canadian Tour.  It also features monthly race weekends with the Loudon Road Race Series and Granite State Legends Cars.  Aside from the racing series, the track is regularly in use during the summer months with various car clubs, racing schools and driving experiences.
