New Hampshire Motor Speedway to Host U.S. Legend Cars International Road Course World Finals
U.S. Legend Cars International (USLCI) is bringing the Road Course World Finals to New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) Oct. 14-16. Eighty-six competitors from four countries will compete on the 1.6-mile full road course in pursuit of the 2022 world championship.
“We’re excited to welcome legend and bandolero drivers from New England and beyond to Loudon as they compete for the world championship,” said New Hampshire Motor Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager David McGrath. “They’re coming to New Hampshire at the perfect time of year when the vibrant New England fall foliage will provide a beautiful backdrop for the competition.”
Drivers from four countries – Canada, Finland, Sweden and the United States – make up a diverse entry list. Twenty-two U.S. states are represented among the entries, which includes 39 New Englanders. The 1.6-mile, 12-turn course features a blend of technical sections and the high-speed areas of the traditional oval that are sure to test the championship mettle of drivers from around the globe.
The weekend schedule includes practice sessions for all divisions starting at 10 a.m. Friday, practice (10:30 a.m.), qualifying (12:30 p.m.) and heat races (immediately following qualifying) for all divisions on Saturday and championship day for all divisions starting at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Last held at NHMS in 2015, the USLCI Road Course World Finals is broken into four divisions: Pro (experienced drivers), Masters (drivers 40 years and older), Semi-Pro (novice) and Young Lions (drivers between the ages of 12 and 16). USLCI is the fastest-growing developmental series in the country. Drivers in the top levels of NASCAR, such as Chase Elliott, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Joey Logano, Bubba Wallace, Ryan Blaney, Daniel Hemric and Dale Earnhardt Jr., to name a few, came from the USLCI program.
Pit passes will be sold at New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s Main Entrance for $65 (two-day Saturday and Sunday), $35 (single-day Saturday or Sunday) and $10 (single-day Friday). Further details can be found on the NHMS website or by calling 833-4LOUDON.
