The Crayon 301 NASCAR Cup Series race is just around the corner, and the drivers are gearing up for an action-packed weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Christopher Bell, Brad Keselowski, and Chase Elliott recently took part in a Goodyear Tire test at the track, getting valuable laps and insights that will be beneficial when they return in July.
For Bell, who drives the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing, the test was crucial in securing his spot in the playoffs. While last year saw many winners, this year is proving to be more challenging, so every race matters. He believes that the test will help him and his team be successful when they return for the race.
“We are thrilled to welcome race fans to ‘The Magic Mile’ to enjoy the many racing events we’ve got lined up throughout the season,” said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “The past year has given us the opportunity to host a variety of events that are outside of our typical wheelhouse, but we’re excited to get back to our motorsports and fan entertainment roots.”
