Parent company Speedway Motorsports Inc.said it will move its September race date (beginning in 2018) at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to Las Vegas to create the second race. The company will also move the Truck Series race from New Hampshire.

The track in Loudon has been home two 2 races every year for quite a while now, but economics have forced a change. Kentucky has also dropped a race.

SMI President Marcus Smith said “Fans and tourism officials in New Hampshire and Kentucky should know that we are still very committed to creating motorsports entertainment in those regions. We will work hard to make sure the July NASCAR race weekends that we will continue to host in New Hampshire.”

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said: “Although we are disappointed by today’s news, New Hampshire Motor Speedway remains a key player in our state’s tourism industry not only for drawing race fans and automotive enthusiasts from around the world, but as a premier event venue for our state. We look forward to welcoming race fans to Loudon in July and partnering with NH Motor Speedway to identify new events that could call New Hampshire home.”
