Featuring one of the most lucrative payouts-per-mile in NASCAR racing, record purses totaling more than $7 million are up for grabs for NASCAR drivers competing in next weekend's LENOX Industrial Tools 301 events at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Drivers racing in any of the week's four NASCAR series races will be chasing their share of $7,005,549 in prize money, the highest in New Hampshire Motor Speedway history. The NASCAR Sprint Cup purse is $5,423,189, up from last year's track record.
"The money is big, and the anticipation is great as NASCAR racing returns to New Hampshire Motor Speedway," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of the speedway. "We're proud to host four of NASCAR's major divisions and offer one of the most lucrative purses in racing."
