Looking Towards Loudon
June 26, 2007
Sunday’s event at New Hampshire marks the latest for the Car of Tomorrow – NASCAR’s new-generation race car that will compete fulltime in 2008.
At New Hampshire the #78 team can tap their notes from previous races at similar tracks to fine-tune setups.
New Hampshire’s relatively flat, 1.058-mile surfaces echoes Richmond and Phoenix, both similar in length and banking.
New Hampshire International Speedway, also known as Loudon, is one of the most unusual tracks on the Nextel Cup Series. The track has been described as "Martinsville on steroids."
The team is looking forward to tackling Loudon and moving forward after a DNQ at Infineon last weekend.
Sunday’s Lenox Industrial Tools 300 at New Hampshire International Speedway marks the first of 10 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series events that will shape the field for the 2007 Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup. Known as the “Race to the Chase,” this 10-week stretch features 10 different venues and corresponding challenges, culminating in the cutoff event – race No. 26 at Richmond International Raceway – on Sept. 8.
