It's All About the Fans at NHMS
There are plenty of good reasons why New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a unique sporting venue compared to other stadiums and entertainment centers in New England. Is it the food and souvenirs? Is it Milo the Moose? Or is it the community of NASCAR fans that travel from far and wide to attend the Camping World RV Sales 301 Sprint Cup Series race weekend?
The Magic Mile has provided a number of fan amenities for fans' convenience during race weekends.
Not only does NHMS provide free parking, but fans are able to camp out on the property with campers and RV's to provide an excellent atmosphere for NASCAR fans all over the country to come together before, during and after the races.
Don't want to leave the pup at home? Dog and pet stations are provided on the property. Unless the pet is a service animal, all other pets are permitted in the camping areas only with a leash. The speedway loves our pets, we only ask that fans remember to bring plenty of food and water for your loved one and remember to be mindful of your neighbors and clean up after it. Also, as the summer progresses and the temperatures rise, RV's should be closely monitored to ensure that any animals inside are left comfortable with plenty of food and water during the hot race days.
Another reason why NHMS differs from other venues is that fans are allowed to bring in their own personal coolers filled with food and beverages to ensure that fans don't miss a second of their favorite drivers speeding passed the grandstands. Coolers can be 14 inches and under and must not be locked. Glass bottles and containers are also not permitted.
Because NHMS is such a large property, (the infield is bigger than Gillette Stadium and Fenway Park combined), scheduled trams, buses and handicap golf carts are provided during race weekends. There are 14 stops along three different routes - each labeled red, blue and yellow - and 16 running trams, including two handicapped trams.
On Thursday, July 10 the tram will start up at 9 a.m. sharp. Friday, Saturday and Sunday the tram will start at 7 a.m. and stops everyday two hours following the last checkered flag event. The tram schedules vary on each event; please refer to the schedule and the tram stops and route map below.
These are just a few reasons why it's not the same when you visit New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
