This weekend, there will be races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon for the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series.

Aric Almirola surprised everyone by winning the Cup race at New Hampshire last year in the encroaching darkness to secure a playoff spot (see highlights of the race above).

Almirola is on the outside looking in when the television show returns to the “Magic Mile.” He is 42 points behind the 16th and final playoff slot, now in position 18, in the Cup playoff standings.

Almirola’s teammate at Stewart-Haas Racing, Kevin Harvick, is in 17th place and is ahead of Christopher Bell in that final position by 19 points.
