On Tap: Hitting The Road And Heading North

The North country beckons.

After a trip to Thompson International Speedway for Thursday’s special card, including a Pro All Stars Series North event and a visit to the track by NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee, we’ll be pointing the RaceDayCT sponsored Camry (we had a top-five car all day) toward the Granite State.

Loudon calls, it’s time for a visit back North to New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

It’s another bustling weekend on tap in Loudon, with a menu that includes the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, the Sprint Cup Series, the Nationwide Series and even some rally car action.
