June is All About Riding on Two Wheels at New Hampshire Motor Speedway
If you'd rather ride on two wheels than four, New Hampshire Motor Speedway is the place to be in June. Highlighted by Motorcycle Week at NHMS, which runs simultaneously with Laconia Motorcycle Week, June 8-16, this month brings a variety of motorcycle and bicycle events to Loudon.
"All of us have been looking forward to June for quite some time now," said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. "Not only will we be hosting the inaugural event on our brand new Flat Track along with the 96th annual Loudon Classic during Laconia Motorcycle Week, but we also have a variety of other events throughout the month that our fans will enjoy with their families as summer finally kicks off."
Motorcycle Week at NHMS will feature demo rides and vendors (June 10-15), all new camping options, Supermoto East Coast (June 14-15), motorcycle rides and on-track action on both the new 0.25-mile Flat Track and the 1.6-mile road course.
The speedway's newest racing surface, The Flat Track, will host the inaugural Laconia Short Track presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys on June 15, featuring riders from American Flat Track. The 96th annual Loudon Classic, known as the longest-running motorcycle race in America, has moved back to Father's Day, June 16.
For a different type of two-wheeled riding, families are encouraged to ride their bicycles on "The Magic Mile" at Dale Jr. Foundation's Safe Kids 301 on June 5. This event kicks off bike-riding season and celebrates bicycle safety with helmet checks, live entertainment and more. This free event is hosted by Speedway Children's Charities New Hampshire Chapter and the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Injury Prevention Program.
The Sunapee Racing Team will hold cycling events at the speedway every Thursday through September 12 (except July 18). Cyclists from all over New England participate in and promote the sport of competitive cycling with a keen emphasis on its long term viability and growth.
