Sunday New Hampshire Cup race: Start time, TV info, weather
LOUDON, N.H. -- The last three drivers to have won at New Hampshire Motor Speedway all enter Sunday’s Cup race seeking their first victory of the season.
Aric Almirola (2021), Brad Keselowski (2020) and Kevin Harvick (2018, ’19) have combined to win the last four races at this 1.058-mile speedway. Can they continue the trend Sunday?
