Race Fans Get Your Engines Ready

According to unionleader.com, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway will be opening this year with a full schedule. I can imagine there will be a lot of pent-up demand to get out to the speedway this year especially since it will be jam-packed with events.  There is a lot of track to make up for this year.

Last year's pandemic precautions put the brakes on a few races but it looks like the 2021 schedule is full.
