It is "full speed ahead" for New Hampshire Motor Speedway's plan to host a country music festival later this year after the state Supreme Court "agreed to give them the green light," according to a front-page piece by Van Fleet & Stoico of the CONCORD MONITOR.

Three neighbors had sued the track in '17 "arguing an agreement with the town" in '89 "prevented the track's new owners from holding concerts on the current property."

A superior court judge "ruled in the racetrack's favor last year and the neighbors appealed to the state's highest court."

In a "unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court sided with the Speedway." In partnership with Live Nation, the festival will include "camping and three days of music."

NHMS Exec VP & GM David McGrath said that the track is "expecting to sell about 25,000 tickets and host thousands of campers."

He added that planning for the event "was on hold while the case was pending, and the goal is still to hold the concert" in '19. As for details such as dates and performers, McGrath said that fans "must stay tuned." CONCORD MONITOR
