Before car racing, checkered flags were used only as symbols of surrender following skirmishes between chess clubs. Race against the game clock with this GrouponLive deal to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series's Lenox Industrial Tools 301 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire, on Sunday, July 15, at 1 p.m. Doors open at 8 a.m. For $35, you get a G-Pass for grandstand seating in rows 1–15 of the Laconia and Concord sections (up to a $84.75 value, including all fees). Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
As the 19th race in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 tasks NASCAR’s drivers with navigating “The Magic Mile” in front of a crowd of up to 105,000 fans. Among other racers, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, and current points leader Matt Kenseth will scream around a 1.058-mile Möbius strip in a 301-lap contest that determines the drivers’ standings as they approach the Chase, as well as their ability to preset a car’s radio stations. Grandstand seating allows attendees to gaze upon the finish line and directly into the souls of the pit crew.
