New Hampshire Motor Speedway

New Hampshire road course360xOn 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 (NHMS).

The speedway, which opened in 1990 and hosts two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events each year, is located about one hour north of Boston in Loudon, N.H. According to the latest census numbers, the population within 200 miles of the speedway is more than 18 million people. The venue is easily accessible via Interstate highways from all metro areas in the northeastern United States and eastern Canada.

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.

The speedway hosts the only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and Global RallyCross Championship events held in the six-state New England region.  Both NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races regularly sell out and exceed the NFL Super Bowl in attendance.

In addition to the major NASCAR races, the track hosts several regional professional racing series, including the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, and the American-Canadian Tour. It also features a monthly race weekends with the Loudon Road Race Series and Granite State Legends Cars and the Gifford's Famous Ice Cream Bandolero Series a part of U.S. Legend Cars International.  Amateur series events include the Sports Car Club of America, Vintage Racer Group, U.S. Classic Racing Association, and the World Karting Association.  Racing schools are conducted throughout the year by the Richard Petty Driving Experience and Penguin School (motorcycles), among others.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway offers many opportunities for racing organizations or individuals to fulfill their need for speed at New England's largest sporting facility. We entertain many forms of racing on our 1,180-acre property, including the Magic Mile (1.058-mile oval) and our 1.6-mile Road Course, which contains the fastest, high-speed banked corner in New England.

Our property allows racing enthusiasts to enjoy not only the premier oval or road course, but also multiple paved and unpaved parking lots which host a multitude of events. Another great asset that NHMS offers is the Gil Rogers Highway, a five-lane, 2.6-mile long perimeter road utilized for things such as safe driving clinics and automotive product testing.

We are well prepared to host your event and look forward to hearing from you so we can meet your need for speed. For pricing and scheduling information, please contact NHMS Operations at (603) 513-5724.
