NCR/PCA - NHMS - Fall Make A Wish

New Hampshire Motor Speedway

About this event

The fall chill is already in the air and before you know it, we will be shoveling snow out of the driveway and off the roof.  Before all that happens, you  need to get out on the track for one final DE event and that event just happens to be on the 22nd & 23rd of October at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and it is appropriately named  "Fall Make A Wish, AKA Spring is a Long Time Coming" event.   Besides all the great driving, have you ever seen the fall foliage from the track?  The views are spectacular and they give you another good reason to keep your eyes up while driving…. you already know the other reason – right?

NHMS is the site of many televised races, including NASCAR Cup and XFINITY series events. What is not usually shown on TV is their 1.6 mile road course with 12 turns and some exciting elevation changes making for a good learning environment for Novices and a challenging and technical drive for our advanced drivers.



In addition to an hour of lapping the track in your own car, you will be helping to put a smile on the faces of the many children attending. The revenue from these activities as well T shirt sales and generous donations all go to the Make A Wish Foundation, our charity of choice.


The NHMS sound limit is 99 db

All makes and models are welcome at our DE events.
