There’s A New Race Track Coming To New Hampshire Next Year
It'll be ready in time for the 2019 Loudon Classic.
New Hampshire Motor Speedway has unveiled a new project which will feature a .25 dirt track. According to their press release, construction crews are hard at work on the racing surface. It's known as ‘The Flat Track,’ but when the green flag drops next spring, ‘America’s Original Extreme Sport’ - American Flat Track - will make its first appearance in New Hampshire, giving race fans a new reason to enjoy the thrill of racing in Loudon.
David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “It’s astonishing how much action can be packed onto a quarter-mile flat track when these pro riders enter the arena. We can’t wait to host American Flat Track, and I’m confident this will quickly become a fan favorite.”
‘The Flat Track’s’ headline event - aptly dubbed the Laconia Short Track - will feature AFT on Saturday, June 15 during Laconia Motorcycle Week. This will co-headline the racing action at New Hampshire Motor Speedway along with the 96th running of the Loudon Classic, the longest running motorcycle race in America, on Sunday, June 16.
