LOUDON, N.H. -- New Hampshire Motor Speedway will continue to host a pair of NASCAR Sprint Cup dates in 2013, including the second event in the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship, track officials announced Friday.
The 1.058-mile oval in Loudon, N.H. will host its first race July 14 and the second Sept. 22.
“We are full steam ahead for our race this Sunday, but we’re also tremendously honored to have the opportunity to do this all over again next year,” said Jerry Gappens, NHMS executive vice president and general manager, in a released statement. “This has been an extremely exciting season and we are privileged to be an integral part in determining NASCAR’s champion. It’s going to be a long winter, but I think I can speak for everyone here at ‘The Magic Mile’ when I say we can’t wait for the 2013 season to begin.”
NHMS has hosted a pair of Sprint Cup races, NASCAR's premier touring series, since 1997 and has hosted a Chase race since the inception of the new playoff format in 2004.
“The main reason why we have both races again next year is because of the enthusiastic support of our race fans in New England,” said Gappens. “The drivers know this is a great place to compete and the fans know it's an amazing place to watch a race.”
