LOUDON - More than 100,000 spectators and 37,700 vehicles are expected to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at the Loudon racetrack on Sunday -- and area roads and highways will be reconfigured to deal with all that traffic.
New traffic patterns will be implemented along Route 106 and Interstate-93 starting Sunday morning, with bigger changes in the afternoon when the race lets out.
On race day morning, Route 106 will be two lanes northbound and one lane southbound from Interstate-393 to the intersection of Shaker Road. On I-93 northbound, the on-ramp at Exit 14 (Loudon Road) will be closed from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
After the race, Route 106 will be closed to northbound traffic from I-393 in Concord to the speedway, and three southbound lanes will be provided on I-93 from just north of Exit 15 in Concord, south to just beyond the junction of Interstate-89 in Bow.
Check here for more detailed information from the N.H. Department of Transportation about ramp and lane closures on Sunday.
Please note the race starts at 1:45 p.m., with maximum traffic congestion expected in the late afternoon and early evening hours.
