New Hampshire International Speedway
This aerial panorama of New Hampshire International
Speedway, was taken by James Blakeway during a NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race.
The Speedway is the site of the first sporting event in New England to
draw over 100,000 guests in a single day and remains New England's largest
sports facility in terms of seating capacity. The track officially opened
in 1990 with its first NASCAR race, a Busch race, in July of that year.
Today, the track hosts two annual NASCAR NEXTEL Cup races including the
first race in the "Chase for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup", the SYLVANIA 300.
The facility includes a 1.058-mile oval super speedway and a 12-turn 1.6-mile
