Free Parking Lots

The New Hampshire Motor Speedway provides free on-site parking to anyone with a ticket to the day's event.  There is no overnight parking allowed on the premises except in designated areas where parking is purchased in association with camping.  With a seating capacity over 100,000, carpooling is strongly recommended.

The gates to the daily parking lots will open by 6 a.m. on race days.

There are four entrances to the NHMS parking lots (South, Main, TV Gate and North).  The Main and TV Gate Entrances are only for Handicap parking, VIP passes, and specific parking passes (Media, Vendor, Official).  Please note that in some instances, different pass holders share these lots.  General parking is accessed by the South and North Entrances.

Traffic Flow

On (only) Sundays before the race, general parking arrivals from the south must use the South Entrance.  After the race, everyone who entered from the south will be directed to return to the south via the South Entrance.  Likewise, general parking arrivals entering from the north must use the North Entrance.  After the race, they will be sent north via the North Entrance.

On (only) Sundays after the race, in order to expedite the heavy exiting flow southbound, N.H. Route 106 is converted into a temporary, three-lane, 10-mile long, one-way highway from the Main Entrance to I-393 in Concord.  Traffic exiting the Main Entrance is allowed to proceed either north or south on N.H. Route 106.  All traffic exiting the South Entrance must head south.
