Friday Night Dirt Duels presented by New England Racing Fuel
New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s newest racing surface, The Flat Track, will host the first ever race under the lights on Friday, July 19. Friday Night Dirt Duels presented by New England Racing Fuel will be headlined by the U.S. Legend Cars International and the USAC Dirt Midget Association and feature a night of short track racing with NASCAR stars on the 0.25-mile dirt track.
Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers Corey LaJoie and Daniel Hemric will race in the 35-lap U.S. Legend Cars International feature event with fellow Cup Series driver Ryan Blaney serving as Grand Marshal. The winner will take home $2,000, which is the largest legends purse in the Northeast this season.
The 30-lap USAC Dirt Midget Association race marks their first appearance at NHMS.
Heat races start at 7:00 p.m. with gates opening and practice starting at 6:00 p.m. Tickets, which include open garage and pit access, are $10 for adults with kids 12 and under free. This is a typical dirt track setting with standing room style viewing and fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating. While coolers are not allowed at The Flat Track, $3 draft beer or hot dogs will be available while supplies last as part of the speedway’s fans first pricing.
