NHIS Adds a USAC Silver Crown Race
Magic Mile to Host Open Wheeled Cars in September
New Hampshire International Speedway (NHIS) has announced the addition of the New Hampshire 75 for the United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Series presented by K&N Engineering on Saturday, September 15. The New Hampshire 75 will be part of an already action packed NASCAR SYLVANIA 300 event weekend.
“The addition of the USAC Silver Crown Series to our SYLVANIA 300 weekend will give our fans another chance to enjoy tremendous racing,” said Bob Bahre, NHIS Chairman of the Board. “Some of the biggest stars in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series such as Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Carl Edwards, Kasey Kahne, and Ryan Newman have developed their skills in USAC. We are proud to be a part of this great tradition.”
The New Hampshire 75 will also be the first USAC Silver Crown Series presented by K&N Engineering race ever run in New Hampshire and in New England. “The Magic Mile” is the 41st track to host the USAC Silver Crown Series.
“To say we are anything less than ecstatic about the USAC Silver Crown Series coming to New Hampshire International Speedway would be an understatement,” said USAC President/CEO Rollie Helmling. “USAC participants and fans are thrilled to be included in this great racing weekend. We have a strong fan following in New England and the addition of USAC Racing will greatly enhance what is already one of America's greatest racing weekends.”
USAC was founded in 1955 and currently operates 19 series of automobile racing and annually sanctions and conducts in excess of 300 events. In addition, USAC Properties Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of USAC, conducts land speed record trials and automotive testing for many leading manufacturers in the United States. USAC is a member organization of the Automobile Competition Committee of the United States (ACCUS-FIA), which provides a direct link with the International motor sports governing body, and FIA, and in that capacity serves as the host nation organizing club for the United States Grand Prix.
