Motorized bolts of lightning piloted by IndyCar icons Dario Franchitti, Danica Patrick, and Helio Castroneves whip past spectators as they vie for the checkered flag on New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s 1.058-mile oval. In their only New England appearance, the IZOD IndyCar Series drivers plan to overwhelm fans with their automotive artistry, painting the track with impressionistic skid marks and dodging each other in a death-defying ballet. Traffic cops will grip their seats in distress as cars careen around the track at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour, slowing down only at pit stops and deer crossings.
The early-afternoon forecast calls for adrenaline showers in the Firestone Indy Lights 100 race, one of a series that traditionally acts as a stepping-stone for future Indy all-stars. The newcomers then step aside for the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225, a 238.05-mile clash of wills between the sport’s premier pedal-slammers. With a total capacity of 105,491 and general-admission seats that grant unobstructed views of the action, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway makes an ideal arena for asphalt warfare and staring contests with friends on the other side of the track.
