NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in the United States, not just motorsports, but all sports. Millions of people watch it on television and thousands attend each race. But for most people attending those races is a lot more than something akin to an evening ballgame. People travel from afar, whole families with their RVs and campers, to spend a long weekend trackside. There a lot more here than just a race, it’s an experience.
Last weekend NASCAR came to New Hampshire Motor Speedway, what I would call my home track, about a 90 minute drive from Boston. Knowing that, the nice people from Toyota invited me to track for Friday’s practice and qualifying. They give me a rather unscheduled tour of the NASCAR world on a race weekend from their perspective, and the race. You may have seen me post some pictures from there to the Hooniverse Facebook page.
