The green flag has dropped on the 2011 season of speed at FANtasy Drive 2.  Join us today for a free admission, exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of New England’s largest sports and entertainment facility including, Bruton Smith’s (Chairman of the Board of New Hampshire Motor Speedway) luxury suite, the Hospitality Courtyard, NASCAR race control featuring live timing and scoring from the speedway’s pace car, the ESPN/TNT/SPEED television broadcast booths, the garage areas, and more.

If you have purchased a ticket to any of the speedway’s major events, experience the ride of a lifetime by taking three laps around “The Magic Mile” in your own car, just like the cars and stars of NASCAR and INDYCAR. After you drive your car around NHMS, celebrate in victory lane and have your picture taken hoisting the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 trophy over your head!

Have the need for speed? Put your online racing skills to the test with several iRacing simulators that will be available throughout the day.

Sponsor displays will also be showcased behind the Main Office along with the hottest new vehicles from Toyota & RVs from Camping World.
