What’s Happening?

NASCAR heads to New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend for the circuit’s annual trek to New England. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming weekend.

  • New Hampshire Motor Speedway, in its current form, was built in 1990 after Bob Bahre bought and renovated the Bryar Motorsports Park Road Course. The Cup Series has been at the track since 1993, hosting two races per year from 1997 through 2017 before scaling back to one race per season.
  • The Xfinity Series and Whelen Modified Tour join for the weekend. Both Series have raced at the track since it opened in 1990. NHMS has become a huge race for the Modifieds, as most Modified Tour races occur in the Northeast.
  • Fans love seeing NASCAR in New Hampshire. Now that the track has only one date per year, it’s become a must-see event for race fans in the Northeast.

What to Watch For

Whelen Modified Tour

New Hampshire is routinely one of the most entertaining modified races of the season. The relatively large size of the track compared to other tracks the series races on means that there is a big draft effect. This leads to a lot of slingshot passes, and the cars tend to stay very close together.

Xfinity Series

The 2023 race was all John Hunter Nemechek as the Joe Gibbs Racing driver led an astounding 137 of 206 laps to beat polesitter Chandler Smith. Sam Mayer won at Iowa last week to break the JGR stranglehold on short tracks. Can JGR drivers like Chandler Smith or Sheldon Creed reclaim that dominance?

Cup Series

The Cup Series race at New Hampshire in 2023 was postponed to Monday due to rain, and Martin Truex Jr. dominated, leading 254 laps. Just like the Xfinity Series, JGR previously had a stranglehold on short-track races this season before Iowa, where Ryan Blaney won. Chevy has not won at the track since 2016, and that’s the only win since 2012. It could be Ford vs Toyota this weekend.

This article will be updated as more news about the race this week comes out.
