2013 New Hampshire (Loudon): NASCAR Sprint Cup Starting Line-up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

The NASCAR Sprint Cup series is racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire this weekend. The Cup series has been racing at the paperclip since 1993 - 36 times.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway was built in 1990 at a distance of 1.058 miles. The corners feature variable banking of two degrees - seven degrees in the turns, with very flat straights banked at a mere one degree. The frontstretch and the backstretch are of an equal distance at 1,500 feet. If all the seats are full 93,521 fans will be in attendance.

Interestingly, over the last 11 races at the paperclip, we've had 11 different winners....

So, today's summer visit will likely again be a real coin flip. Heck... a coin flip sounds pretty good since it would give us 50/50 odds. But, this time around there is no sure thing, and the race is likely to shake up those trying to make the chase.

In fact, during the last two races, the same three drivers have finished in the top-five: Kasey Kahne, Denny Hamlin and Clint Bowyer.

Which makes for some consistency that might resemble a trend.

Only one driver has finished in the top-five three times in the last four events: Denny Hamlin. And over the last eight events four drivers stand out: Denny Hamlin (5 top-fives), Tony Stewart (4 top-fives), Jeff Gordon (4 top-fives), and Jimmie Johnson (4 top-fives).

So there is a group of drivers who finish well consistently at New Hampshire, there just isn't any trend regarding a winner.

With that background, we are going to go with Denny Hamlin for the win since he is bound to finish in the top-five and has the most consistency.

But that pick is likely to fail us, so keep an eye on previous winners Jeff Burton (4 wins), and Jimmie Johnson (3 wins - including NH I in 2010).

So, enjoy today's race! It looks like its going to be a good one!
