6 crazy things you didn't know about NHMS on NASCAR race weekend
Sponsored by NHMS
LOUDON – New Hampshire Motor Speedway brings in some serious cash flow to the local economy as the largest entertainment event venue in New England.
But did you know…
It’s bigger than a city
During race weeks, NHMS turns its home of Loudon into the biggest city in the state in terms of people on its 1,200 acres of land.
Lots of dollars
Each race week brings in about $250 million into New Hampshire through people’s purchases of food, dining, hotel rooms, camping and tax-free shopping.
NHMS also employs thousands of local charities and non-profit organizations for race weekends as a fundraising opportunity.
Last year alone they awarded almost $300,000 through these charities and non-profits and plan on raising that amount again this race season.
NHMS is big - really big
New Hampshire Motor Speedway is large enough to fit both Gillette Stadium and Fenway Park inside of it.
Owns the highway – literally
NHMS owns the longest, privately-owned 5-lane highway in the country to help with traffic flow during race weeks.
Free parking and more!
At New Hampshire Motor Speedway, parking is free, coolers are always welcome in the stands (no glass containers) and tickets start as low as $35 with children’s tickets half priced.
