Muddy race at NHMS
Sloppy fun for RallyCross drivers, fans
The races, which came to the speedway for the first time last year, are a smaller, faster sort of "X-Games" event done on specially set-up dirt tracks.
"We want to reach out and bring in the younger generation of fans into racing, and this seems to appeal to many of them that may not be as interested in a 500-mile race," Gappens said.
"I get bored (by NASCAR races) because it's always one big line of cars; there's no room to pass or anything," said Robby Douglas, 12, of Derry, who races go-karts, bandaleros, and hopes one day to be a RallyCross and a NASCAR driver.
Al Voghel, 25, of Wolcott, Conn., said he'd love to try it.
"I'd have to win the lottery, but I'd love to be out there," said Voghel, who has been coming to Loudon for many years, and has enjoyed the addition of RallyCross racing.
Jason Smith, 9, of Allenstown, also wants to try RallyCross.
"It looks like a blast," he said.
