Waking Up The Sleeping Giant: Sylvania 300 Weekend At New Hampshire Motor Speedway

LOUDON, N.H. – No truth to the rumors that the NAPA folks stopped us on the ride through the infield and offered us a sponsorship deal for the rest of the season for the RaceDayCT Toyota Camry (we had a top-five call all morning).

While we didn’t score the NAPA sponsorship, we were sure thrilled to see NASCAR’s Jason Christley greeting us with a shiny pair of Red Bull cans in the morning. We can always be bribed with Red Bull.

Welcome back to Loudon, N.H. where fall has arrived (although one wouldn’t notice that if the air conditioning was broken in their room, hint hint Hampton Inn).

Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway means a lot of practice, some qualifying and a lot of dodging souped up golf carts in the infield.

Cars hit the track at 8:30 a.m. this morning with the first and final K&N Pro Series East practice of the weekend in preparation for Saturday’s North American Power 100.

The Whelen Modified Tour hits the track for their only practice of the weekend from 10:10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. The Modified Tour will have qualifying today at 5 p.m. for Saturday’s F.W. Webb 100.

The big boys from the Sprint Cup Series hit the track for their first practice at noon readying for Sunday’s Sylvania 300, the second race of the Chase for the Championship. The Cup series will hold qualifying at 3:40 p.m. Friday.
