Cup Drivers to Double in NHMS' Nationwide
When the stars of NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series race into New Hampshire Motor Speedway next weekend there is a good chance they may not just visit Victory Lane during the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday.
The NASCAR Nationwide Series New England 200 on Saturday, July 16, will feature some of NASCAR’s best. Sprint Cup Series drivers scheduled to pull double duty include; Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards and Kasey Kahne.
Although the Nationwide Series is a developmental program for the drivers of tomorrow, it gives the Sprint Cup Series regulars of today an opportunity to sharpen their racing skills and simply have some fun without all of the Sunday business.
Kyle Busch dominated the New England 200 last year becoming the first ever repeat winner in the NASCAR Nationwide Series at NHMS.
Keselowski, Logano, Harvick and Busch all have started on the pole position during the Saturday 200-lap event at “The Magic Mile.”
New Hampshire Motor Speedway has seen Sprint Cup regulars take the checkered flag for the past seven NASCAR Nationwide Series races.
The July NASCAR weekend features an action-packed schedule that includes the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LENOX Industrial Tools 301, the NASCAR Nationwide Series New England 200, the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East New England 125 and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour F.W. Webb 100. To purchase tickets call the NHMS ticket hotline at (603) 783-4931 or by visiting www.nhms.com.
