Track Policies

New Hampshire Motor Speedway continues to provide an exciting and fun, yet secure and safe, environment for the world's greatest racing entertainment. Please take a look at the following policies to help plan your visit. The policies below are regulated and enforced to make sure your visit is a safe and stress-free one.

*All security measures are subject to change without notice.

Our events are about FUN, friends, family and love. We want to create positive memories for people and do so in an inclusive environment.  Accordingly, all banners, signs and flags openly displayed (including but not limited to on vehicles, clothing, hats or other accessory items) while on the premises of New Hampshire Motor Speedway must comply with this policy. Banners, signs and flags should contain no obscene language, symbols or logos, or graphic depictions. Speedway management reserves the right to approve all banners, signs and flags.  Confederate flags (including flags, signs and banners that contain the confederate flag) are not allowed. 

Attendees must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Banners, signs and flags must be small enough for one person to hold and no larger than 36" x 60" (except that the U.S. Flag in a larger size may be displayed during the playing of the National Anthem only).
  • Banners, signs and flags may not be affixed, in any form, to any portion of the Speedway premises.
  • Banners, signs and flags may not obstruct the view of others.
  • Banners, signs and flags should be constructed of either vinyl, cloth or other lightweight materials.
  • Banners, signs and flags in the spectator grandstands may not be attached to poles or sticks.
  • Banners, signs and flags are not permitted in any premium seating area except as specifically permitted in writing by the Speedway.

Speedway management reserves the right to remove any and all banners, signs or flags not in compliance with this policy or which, in their sole judgment, violates this policy.  If you refuse to allow the removal of any such banner, sign or flag, you will be subject to removal from Speedway premises. 

The Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee is valid for Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Dover Motor Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Nashville Superspeedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Sonoma Raceway and Texas Motor Speedway (each a "Speedway Motorsports Speedway" and collectively the "Speedway Motorsports Speedways"), and is effective as of August, 9, 2018.

If weather postpones a NASCAR race held at a Speedway Motorsports Speedway and a ticket holder is unable to attend on the rescheduled date, the Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee provides such fans a ticket credit toward a future NASCAR race at any of the SMI Speedways.

The Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee applies to all NASCAR races at any Speedway Motorsports Speedway that are postponed and rescheduled to a different date due to inclement weather.

No cash refunds will be issued and the ticket credit has no cash value and may be used only as a credit toward the purchase of a NASCAR race at an SMI Speedway as stated in this Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee Policy. Unused tickets may be exchanged for a ticket of equal or lesser value on a ticket-for-ticket basis.

Events and seating locations eligible for redemption are based on availability at time of redemption.

Eligible tickets may be exchanged for any future Speedway Motorsports NASCAR race within (1) calendar year of the original event date or for the same race the following year, even if it falls outside the (1) year window. Fan(s) must use the ticket credit and redeem eligible tickets within 60 days of the original date of the postponed event, or by the end of the calendar year, whichever is shorter. If eligible tickets are not redeemed during the timeframe set forth herein, the ticket credit shall expire and be of no value.

Complimentary tickets are not eligible for exchange under this policy. Restrictions also apply to corporate block tickets and tickets purchased through brokers or resale websites not directly affiliated with the Speedway Motorsports Speedways. ONLY TICKETS PURCHASED DIRECTLY AND ORIGINALLY FROM AN SPEEDWAY MOTORSPORTS SPEEDWAY OR FROM THEIR TICKET AGENT TICKETMASTER ARE ELIGIBLE FOR EXCHANGE UNDER THIS SPEEDWAY MOTORSPORTS WEATHER GUARANTEE POLICY. RESALE TICKETS PURCHASE THROUGH TICKETMASTER TICKETEXCHANGE ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR EXCHANGE UNDER THIS SPEEDWAY MOTORSPORTS WEATHER GUARANTEE POLICY. Fans should contact the speedway ticket office where the race was postponed to verify ticket eligibility.

Only race tickets are covered by this Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee Policy.

This policy does not apply if an event is delayed, regardless of length of delay, but still completed on the original event date, even if completion of the event occurs after 11:59 p.m. of such original event date.

This policy does not apply for events shortened due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances if the race/event is counted as official by the sanctioning body.

The Speedway Motorsports Speedways reserve the right to alter and/or terminate the Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee at any time, provided, however, that such termination shall not affect tickets already purchased while the Speedway Motorsports Weather Guarantee policy was in effect.

Contact the ticket office at your favorite Speedway Motorsports Speedway for further information.

What if I don't have a smartphone to download my mobile tickets?

If a ticket holder is unable to download their mobile tickets due to not having a smartphone, physical tickets can be printed at any of our ticket booths. Only the ticket holder of record, with proper identification (driver's license, passport or state-issued identification card) can obtain the physical tickets, however.

If there is an opportunity to offer you a seat location change, you will be contacted by the NHMS Ticket office. No changes will be made to seat locations without authorization from the ticket holder. All upgrades are based on availability.

Camping Policies

Camping at the racetrack can create memories that can last a lifetime. Before you set up your campsite, take a look at these policies that will help you maximize your getaway at the speedway.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway offers parking for self-contained RVs and campers for Motorcycle Week at NHMS and the NASCAR Cup Series race week. During the NASCAR Cup Series race week, the lots will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, one week in advance of race weekend.

During the week, campers will be able to park nightly until 10 p.m. From 10 p.m. - 8 a.m., campers will be staged in the S11 Lot. RV lots will remain open to car traffic 24 hours a day throughout race week.

RV and camper parking is limited to New Hampshire Motor Speedway ticket holders only. All drivers and their guests must have race day tickets in their possession before driving onto NHMS property. Please do not park in the fire lane between rows of campers.

Cooking fires should be fueled with clean wood only. If you are caught burning materials other than clean wood you will lose your rights to renew your race tickets.
