Ticket deals for families available at NHMS for 2017


 NHMS in Loudon is offering family ticket deals for 2017 


In conjunction with a NASCAR industry-wide effort to offer free NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and XFINITY Series tickets for children 12 and under next season, New Hampshire Motor Speedway announced a Fans First initiative to price select children’s tickets at just $10 each for the Cup Series events in 2017 on July 16 and Sept. 24.


This announcement came on Monday from Speedway Motorsports, Inc. as a company-wide initiative at its eight premier speedways across the country, including New Hampshire Motor Speedway, beginning in 2017.

“Coming to the races should be about fun, not finances,” said Speedway Motorsports’ President and Chief Executive Officer Marcus Smith. “Now a parent can get his or her child through the gates for an entire weekend of NASCAR events – including pole night, a Camping World Truck or XFINITY Series race and a Cup Series race – for just $10. This is one of the best, if not THE best, family values in all professional sports.

“NASCAR fans have passed down their passion for motorsports from generation to generation for decades, and through this new Fans First initiative, we’ll continue that legacy by introducing young fans to the sport and engaging them for years to come.”

With an adult ticket purchase, fans can buy up to two $10 tickets for children ages 12 and under to that same event in select seating sections.


“Family and tradition is at the hallmark of what we do here, and we take a lot of pride in ensuring that our youngest fans continue to have those same opportunities,” said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “When you look at William Byron and Erik Jones, 18 and 20 years old, you see that the future of our industry sitting inside the cockpits of these Camping World Truck Series and XFINITY Series vehicles. As drivers like these make the transition to the Cup Series level we want to give our fans and their families an affordable opportunity to see the future of NASCAR today, while building a fan base for the next generation – which is the driving force behind this initiative.”

This offer is available at all of the 13 Cup Series events shown below next season. Tickets for many of Speedway Motorsports’ 2017 events are already on sale. A complete schedule of the company’s Cup Series races is below:

Wiscasset Speedway on the Maine coast has been a part of the Down East motorsports picture for many years.

Wiscasset Speedway features the fastest cars in Maine. Sure, they have a popular Kids Club, keeping even the youngest members of a family entertained on race day. And of course, track owners, Richard and Vanessa Jordan, schedule countless celebrations throughout the season. But leaving all of that aside, the track has a reputation for sponsoring events that keep motorheads coming back year after year to the state’s fastest track. Formidable competitors known throughout New England battle for the track championships. With that said, last Saturday night’s regular division races were delayed briefly for a lively, albeit competitive 20-lap Go-Kart race. Think it was simply a feel-good, fluff piece to keep crowds entertained? Think again! At Wiscasset Speedway, even a Go-Kart race becomes Daytona 500, with fans not only filling the grandstands but crews surfacing from prepping cars in the pits to watch these mini speed demons. Winning first was Spencer Wenners in the #53x, with Wyatt Oakes of the #11 in second and Deliah Lamarre of the #13 in third. Continue reading
