It’s long been a question posed by race fans around New England.
When will New Hampshire Motor Speedway get lights? While it might be some time before the racing surface is lit up for events at the track, it’s actually lights that take center stage at the facility beginning Friday.
New Hampshire Motor Speedway kicks off its second Gift of Lights display Friday.
The Holiday themed drive-thru illumination show at the track has doubled in size from last year, showcasing a more than two-mile long route featuring more than 40 displays and more than two million lights.
The course begins at the Main Gate of the track on Route 106 in Loudon and winds around the outside of the grandstands and also includes a stretch of the road course.
The display will be open daily from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. until Jan. 5. Tickets are $15 per car Sunday through Thursday and $20 per car on Fridays and Saturdays. Visitors that bring three or more non-perishable food items will receive discounts in exchange for their donation. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the New Hampshire Chapter of the Speedway Children’s Charities.
Photo opportunities with Santa and track mascot Milo the Moose will be available. Also, on select weekends, the W.I.L.D. Center & Zoological Park of New England from Rochester, N.H. will bring an arctic wildlife display with live animals.
