Additional Information:
New Hampshire Motor Speedway installed SAFER (Steel and Foam Energy Reduction system) barriers in 2004.

Widely known for its 1 mile oval, on which several well-publicized NASCAR events are held each year, NHMS also features a tight, challenging 1.6 mile multi-configuration road course. This course combines some of the oval's wide banked surface with narrower sections including tight esses, two relatively fast sweepers, several dramatic changes in elevation, and a steeply banked, down-and-up hairpin turn called "the bowl". At NHIS, you never stop turning!

NHMS's packed schedule includes a NASCAR Winston Cup race, two NASCAR Busch Grand National North races, several SCCA and vintage events, frequent club events hosted by organizations like COMSCC, Northeast Replica Challenge, and BMW Car Club of America, and numerous motorcycle and kart races.

The two Nextel Cup Series races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway are largest spectator sporting events in New England with 101,000 guests in attendance at each race. NHMS is located one hour from Boston, two hours from Portland, Maine, and Providence, R.I., and is easily accessible from Vermont and Canada..

NHMS also holds several open track sessions throughout the year, typically using the North Chicane/South Oval configuration.

Helpful Hints

  • There are two well-stocked fuel/convenience stores about 1 mile south of the track on Route 106.

  • Make sure your brakes and brake lines are in good shape - Turn 3 is utterly unforgiving of brake failure.

  • Racing gas & Methanol are available. Call the track for flavors and prices.

  • There are used oil and antifreeze collection tanks in the paddock.

  • There is an air conditioned restaurant, (The Checkered Flag), which serves all sorts of usual track food.

  • The bathrooms are very clean. The showers are hot and there are plenty of them.

Vintage Celebration
("Vic Yerardi Memorial") is the largest on track vintage racing car event in the US. Eligible vintage racing cars include: Midgets, Sprints, Champ cars, Indy cars and Stock cars. The event was the brainchild of Bob Bahre, New Hampshire Motor Speedway owner, and the late Vic Yerardi, a huge supporter of the Vintage Race Car movement.

Cars travel from as far away as California and Florida to participate in the event. Each year a Grand Marshall is named for the celebration. In past years, notables like Roger Ward, A.J. Watson, Buster Werke, Ron Bouchard & Ken Squier were honored.
