New Hampshire Motor Speedway to Host Special High School Graduation June 13

LOUDON, N.H. – Reflecting the indominable spirit of the class of 2020, the graduating class at Merrimack Valley High School (MVHS) will literally and figuratively cross the finish line of their high school careers at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in a special graduation event, which celebrates this milestone in a safe and unique way. With the cancellation of typical graduation ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NHMS and MVHS are teaming up to send the seniors off in a memorable way: by driving on “The Magic Mile” and crossing the start/finish line – the famed Granite Stripe – on June 13.

“The class of 2020 has certainly endured a year of challenge,” said David McGrath, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. “These young people have worked so hard, shown great determination, and we’re so proud of their efforts. We’re honored to welcome them to ‘The Magic Mile’ to celebrate their hard work with a unique experience to mark their graduation from high school.”

2020 Northeast Classic Cancelled

Event Now to Debut in 2021

Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Star Series (PASS) officials have announced the 2020 Northeast Classic at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) has been cancelled. The inaugural edition of the event will now take place on April 16 and 17, 2021.

Despite the hopes of series officials, and a previous postponement to May 8 and 9, it became clear in recent days that holding the Northeast Classic in 2020 was no longer practical. The state of New Hampshire recently extended its State of Emergency declaration, and indications are that New Hampshire’s Stay at Home order will also be extended beyond the current May 4 expiration date.

Furthermore, the U.S.-Canada border remains closed to non-essential business, which would prevent the large amount of Quebec-based teams and fans who planned to attend the Northeast Classic from doing so. With the current health and safety concerns, and other postponements and uncertainty throughout the Northeast racing world making rescheduling even more difficult, the decision was made to wait until 2021 for the debut of the highly-anticipated event.
