This week the drivers of the NASCAR circuit head north to the Granite State, to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The track is located about 75 miles from downtown Boston and easily reached from Portland, ME and Providence, RI. This very flat 1.05 mile track always provides a very interesting race. The introduction of stage racing has really tracks like this both races in 2017 were helped by the three stage format. Sadly it was too little, too late and we lost the September race to Las Vegas so like 2018 this will be the only stop here this season. Six different teams have won here in the last ten years. Joe Gibbs Racing has eight of those wins, Hendrick Motorsports and Stewart Haas Racing have three each.  Team Penske and Richard Childress Racing have two wins each. The now defunct Michael Waltrip Racing has one win.  Toyota has really dominated here with nine wins in the last twenty races, including five of the last six races. With just seven races to go before the ten-race Playoffs, some of the drivers will be getting even more aggressive than usual. Because of the flat, tight turns there is always beatin’ and bangin’ on this track. Which driver can get one race closer to locking himself into the Playoffs? We’ll know on Sunday.
