New Hampshire Motor Speedway is gearing up for the Full Throttle Weekend that will happen in just three weeks featuring the Musket 250 for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
It will be the longest race in Tour history with $25,000 dollars going to the winner of the event and will include a bonus $100 per lap the leader leads.
On Tuesday, New Hampshire Motor Speedway announced fans will receive more access for the upcoming race weekend. When fans purchase tickets, they will have infield access. The Fan Zone will also be in the infield that will have kids activities, a beer garden, food trucks, carnival style games, live music, and amusement park rides.
“We have been working all year long to create a unique and exciting race weekend for our fans with the new Full Throttle Fall Weekend,” said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway in a news release.
“This will be grassroots racing at its finest with never before seen events. Fans can expect this to be very different from our July race with much more access. It will certainly be a memorable weekend!”
The weekend will feature 475 laps of racing on Saturday, September 22. The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour gave fans a photo finish in the July event when Bobby Santos beat Chase Dowling to the line to win the 100 lap race.
The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will also return for their second appearance of the season for the Apple Barrel 125. Tyler Ankrum dominated the United Site Services 70 when the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East visited the Magic Mile in July.
The NASCAR Pinty Series out of Canada will make their first appearance here in U.S. for the Granite 100. Some of the Pinty Series drivers such as Cole Powell, Andrew Ranger and Donald Theetge have raced at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
