New Hampshire Motor Speedway isa 1.058 mile (1.703 km) oval speedway located in Loudon, New Hampshire, USA. Just over a mile in length, NHMS’ oval is a classic “paper-clip” design with long straightaways and tight, flat turns. Not surprisingly, the track rewards cars that have plenty of “grunt” off the corners and brakes capable of getting things slowed-down at the end of the front straightaway and the backstretch… not to mention driver who can baby those brakes from start to finish in races lasting three hours or more while making their cars work high and low in the turns.
There’s more to NHMS than the one mile oval. In keeping with a heritage dating back to 1965 when the site was home to twisty Bryar Motorsports Park, NHMS offers top-flight road racing. Although the configurations incorporate different portions of the oval and twisting infield roads, they all utilize a breathtaking loop that climbs into the countryside beyond the backstretch to a 180 degree bowl of a turn before plunging back down to the oval.
