After a four-month hiatus, Danica Patrick returns to stock car racing this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Her last NASCAR Nationwide Series race was at Las Vegas in February, and it showed in her dismal speeds in the first practice. But after finishing 24th in speed in the second practice, will Danica be a factor in the New England 200?
The Sprint Cup Series heads to New Hampshire after a wreckfest at Sonoma where Jimmie Johnson rode away with his fourth win of the season. Coming into this race, there’s been a lot of talk about aggressive driving and the difference between the old drivers and the young drivers. It looks to only get worse as the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 is the first stop in the “Race to the Chase,” the final 10 races to qualify for the Chase for the Championship.
The Performance Racing Network (PRN) will present the live radio coverage of Saturday’s New England 200 at 3:00 p.m. (EDT) On Sunday, coverage of the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 begins at 12:00 p.m. (EDT).
