The latest stop in NASCAR America’s “50 States in 50 Shows” series is New Hampshire.

After Rutledge Wood shows you where New Hampshire Motor Speedway gets the lobsters it awards to Cup race winners, it’s time to head north to Groveton, New Hampshire.

That’s where Speedway 51 is located.

The 1/4-mile paved oval has been open since 1964 and features late models and sportsman stock series. But it also hosts vintage snowmobile races in the winter.

Another attraction is the Winter Blast 100, which allows its entrants to compete with any kind of vehicle they want.

The latest edition of “50 States in 50 Shows” takes you to Nevada, home of Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Cup Series champions Kurt and Kyle Busch.

This segment shows off Lovelock Speedway, a 10-year-old track located north of Carson, Nevada.

In November, the dirt track hosts a race where the entry fee is a frozen turkey. All the turkeys are donated to a local food bank.

Kurt Busch then shares how his racing career got started in Las Vegas.

“I won a late model race while I was struggling in college,” the Stewart-Haas Racing driver told NASCAR America. “I felt that energy and that feeling of accomplishments, success and that value of getting a late model trophy. That’s the day I knew I wanted to pursue racing as a career.”
