New England Nationals

The New England Nationals arrived in Epping, NH for the first time in the 40 years the track has been open. The owner of the track had to make vast improvements to the track and the pit areas for NHRA to consider making this a stop on the NHRA Tour.

Overall it was a great track to shoot at and get around. THe only bad part was the traffic going in and out of the track. Five lanes of cars all attempting to go into one gate. Epping should take a look at Bristol Raceway and see how they have got the traffic figured out because I have never been stuck in traffic there.

Let’s get started with photos
