Changes To Upcoming Race At New Hampshire Motor Speedway
This weekend marks one of the highlights of the 30th anniversary season of the "Magic Mile" with the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301.
If you're planning on going to the race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend, be prepared for some changes.
According to a press release from the Speedway, there will be changes for fans and drivers alike.
For fans, expect some changes starting with ticketing. All ticketing will be done digitally and a seat will be assigned at that time. There also will be no will-call or picking up tickets at the box office to try to eliminate contact points.
Fans will also be asked to wear a mask as soon as they step onto the property and will be required in all common areas like restrooms and the concession stands. Once you are seated in your socially distanced seat, you are allowed to take off the mask.
The press release also says that "All fans, NHMS personnel and NASCAR team members will be temperature screened on event day."
As far as the souvenir stands, that will look a little different too. No cash will be accepted That will also be in effect for the food stands.
The drivers will also not be allowed practice or qualifying laps.
According to WMUR, about 18,000 people are expected at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the race.
General Manager David McGrath says in the press release:
“Hosting the Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 is also a responsibility we take very seriously. It’s our job to not only host a marquee NASCAR Cup Series race, but also to provide a safe and fun environment.”
