HENDRICK MOTORSPORTS AT NEW HAMPSHIRE: At New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Hendrick Motorsports has nine wins, seven pole positions, 42 top-five finishes and 75 top-10s. Kasey Kahne most recently visited Victory Lane for the organization at the track in 2012.
KAHNE AT NEW HAMPSHIRE: This weekend, Kahne returns to New Hampshire, the site of his 14th career NASCAR Cup Series victory. He took the checkered flag in the July 2012 event with a 2.738-second margin of victory over Denny Hamlin, leading 66 laps at the Loudon, New Hampshire, track. Kahne’s average starting position at the 1.058-mile oval is 11.7 and his average finishing position is 17.1. With five second-place starts, the 37-year-old is still looking for his first pole award at the New England track.
ELLIOTT'S LOUDEN STATS: The Dawsonville, Georgia, native is set to make his fourth NASCAR Cup Series start at the 1.058-mile speedway. In his previous three starts, Elliott averaged a starting position of 9.3 and finishing position of 19.3. The driver of the No. 24 also has two starts in the NASCAR XFINITY Series in Loudon, New Hampshire. In those XFINITY starts, Elliott collected a pair of top-10 finishes, averaging a starting position of 7.5 and finishing position of 8.5.
JOHNSON'S THREE LOBSTERS: Throughout 31 starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Johnson and the No. 48 Lowe’s team have earned three trophies and the traditional lobsters given to the winners in Victory Lane. They swept both events in 2003 and earned another victory in 2010.
EARNHARDT LOOKING FOR A LOBSTER: Earnhardt has yet to win and claim the prize rock lobster traditionally given away at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but the driver of the No. 88 Nationwide Chevrolet SS has racked up some solid stats at the 1.058-mile oval. In 34 starts, he has eight top-five finishes, four of which have come since his transition to Hendrick Motorsports. He missed both races at New Hampshire last year while recovering from a concussion, but he’s scored top-10 results in five of his last nine starts at the Loudon, New Hampshire, facility. While his career average finish at the track is 15.4, in his most recent nine races dating back to 2012, the driver of the No. 88 Nationwide Chevrolet SS has improved that number to an average finish of 11.6
