Each year the NASCAR Nationwide Series races their way into New England, and every year a new winner emerges in victory lane.
Twenty-three drivers have taken the checkered flag at the “Magic Mile.” But the streak could end once again at this year’s New England 200, when six previous winners start their engines in hopes of becoming the first ever Nationwide Series repeat winner at NHMS.
Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Kenny Wallace, Jason Keller, Carl Edwards, and Joe Nemechek all have a chance to end this remarkable streak on Saturday, June 26.
Kyle Busch has dominated the series so far this year with four wins, two poles, a combined eight top- five’s, and top-10’s. He currently sits second in the championship points standings. Kyle pulls into the speedway with the most momentum as the defending event winner.
Harvick certainly rules qualifying at NHMS, grabbing the pole position in 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2007, but has only reached the winners circle once.
Jason Keller won the CVS/Pharmacy 200 presented by Bayer in 2001 and currently ranks 27th in the Nationwide points. Could he see his first victory of 2010?
Carl Edwards shines every time he visits the “Magic Mile.” He back flipped his way to victory lane in 2006 and has never finished outside the top-ten.
Fan favorite Kenny Wallace won the third ever race at NHMS, the Budweiser 300 in July, 1991. Wallace comfortably sits 17th in the point standings and looks to be the first repeat Nationwide winner the track has ever seen.
Front row Joe Nemechek is no stranger to winning. He has 16 career wins in the Nationwide Series; however he only has one victory at New Hampshire, which came in 1992.
