2015 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 - 40 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. The track is looking to tie the record set by Texas from 1998 through 2007 - 13.

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.

However, during the last four races at Loudon some consistentcy has emerged with Kyle Busch finishing in the top-five three times. Five other drivers have finished twice in the top-five.

Does that make a trend ?

Over the last eight events two drivers stand out: Brad Keselowski (4 top-fives) and Jimmie Johnson (4 top-fives). But together, they have a total of one win.

So there is a small 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 Kyle Busch for the win since he is bound to finish in the top-five and has good consistency.

But that pick is likely to fail us, so keep an eye on previous three-race winners: Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch, Ryan Newman, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon.

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