NWMT Musket 250 expected to return to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2019

Drivers considered the inaugural Full-Throttle Fall Weekend to be a success.

Apparently, so did New Hampshire Motor Speedway officials.

In a Wednesday press release, track general manager David McGrath confirmed the return of the event for the 2019 season.

“Oh heavens yes,” said McGrath on a NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour return to the Magic Mile next September. “That’s the anchor. You can count on it. We were all pleasantly surprised with the number of campers, and we hope to grow that. I think that the crowd was very strong.”

The quick decision to bring NASCAR’s regional touring series back for another year was much in part due to the larger-than-expected crowds and number of campers at the track.

Fans saw Kevin Lecroix win the opening NASCAR Pinty’s Series race, Brandon McReynolds take the checkers in the 125-lapper for the K&N Pro Series East, and Chase Dowling win an absolutely thrilling Musket 250.

Those same fans will certainly be all too thrilled to see the weekend return in 2019.
