New Hampshire Motor Speedway executive vice president and general manager Jerry Gappens joined the Granite State’s Congressional Delegation today hosting the second consecutive Experience New Hampshire day in Washington D.C.

Gappens also hosted the Experience New Hampshire reception with Senator Jeanne Shaheen, gearing up the nation’s capitol for the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on Sunday, July 17.

The event, which is co-sponsored by the speedway, is designed to introduce our nation's leaders to everything that the great state of New Hampshire has to offer. Experience New Hampshire showcased the state's top business and tourism companies including “The Magic Mile.”

“I strongly believe that relationships all around the country are the foundation for good business in New Hampshire,” said Gappens. “This event is designed to spread the good word about all our state has to offer. I am letting all of Washington know there is no place to live, work and play like New Hampshire.”

Gappens also attended a lunch hosted by New Hampshire’s Congressional Delegation, featuring business leaders around the U.S.
