PIT BOX: Dumoulin & Tagliani Lead NASCAR Pinty’s Series to New Hampshire
“Magic Mile” Hosts Triple Header With Full Throttle Weekend


It’s here.

One of the most anticipated short-track weekends in New England is on deck, as New Hampshire Motor Speedway hosts its first “Full Throttle Weekend.”

Canadian’s national championship for stock car racing, the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, will make its first trip to the United States with the inaugural Visit New Hampshire 100. The race will precede the Fall Brawl at Ontario’s Jukasa Motor Speedway to close out the season the following weekend, and a pair of Quebec notables – LP Dumoulin and Alex Tagliani – are separated by just five points.

NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour drivers will take center stage in the inaugural Musket 250. The longest race in Whelen Modified Tour history will include live pit stops and put some of the best modified drivers and teams in the country up against their toughest test yet for a $25,000 first-place prize.

And the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East returns to the stage that is known for defining its champions. Tyler Ankrum won at the ‘Magic Mile’ in July, and will look not only for a season sweep with a win in the Apple Barrel 125, but he could also clinch the series championship with a race remaining. He would be the sixth driver in the last 12 years to win at NHMS en route to the title.




If L.P. Dumoulin wants to seal his second career NASCAR Pinty’s Series championship over the final two races, he will need to navigate the series’ first trip to the U.S. with a strong finish in the Visit New Hampshire 100. Fresh-off a 10th place finish last time out, Dumoulin enters NHMS just five points up in the championship standings over Quebec rival Alex Tagliani.

Tagliani, who is chasing Dumoulin into the Visit New Hampshire 100, does have some experience at the 1.058-mile oval on his resume – although it’s not likely to be applicable to his Saturday setup. Tagliani competed at New Hampshire in 2011 as part of the Verizon Indycar Series, where he started 16th and finished 19th. Much like the guy he’s chasing, if Tagliani wants to enter the finale in prime position to win the title, he’s going to have to figure it out quickly as well.

Similarly, former Sunoco Rookie of the Year Cole Powell has four starts at New Hampshire on the Whelen Modified Tour. Powell, who sits 24 points back and four ahead of fourth-place DJ Kennington, has a best finish of 11th in 2013.
