History

The track opened as New Hampshire International Speedway in June 1990, following nine months of development after the Bahre family's acquisition of the Bryar Motorsports Park. The current street circuit was redeveloped into a multi-purpose track, with NASCAR-endorsed races added to the mainstream Loudon Classic bike, WKA go-kart, and SCCA races on the complex.

Upon completion, it turned into the biggest speedway in New England, and later extension has made it the biggest games and diversion setting of any sort in the district.

NASCAR made its introduction at the track in July 1990, with a Busch Series race won by Tommy Ellis. For a very long time, the Busch Series facilitated a couple of races at the track every year.

The Busch races were fruitful. Loudon acquired a spot on the NASCAR Cup Series plan for 1993. Rusty Wallace won the debut Slick 50 300 in July of that year.
